A Postgraduate degree holder, Mughnee believes that a critical barometer of success is the freedom to pursue any interest that makes one happy and fulfilled. On top of the recognition from ACES, Mughnee was also recently named the Emerging Leader of the Year at the Asia’s Best Employer Brand Awards in 2019, hosted by World HRD Congress.
A huge part of STELCO’s work focuses on its CSR initiatives to enhance the lives of the local communities and islands that it operates in.

Additionally, STELCO facilitates powerhouse tours to students with the hopes of fostering interest in Science, Technology and Engineering, and has invested in developments fully powered by solar energy while supporting several government initiatives, including its goal to achieve carbon neutrality, and the restoration of historical monuments.
As a respected leader within the industry, Mughnee values the potential of others and often empowers others, including his employees, to reach for the stars.
