His schedule is always packed with meetings and deadlines. He has a challenging task of opening more outlets of his classic American casual wear brand in India. But he still manages to take time out “every 3 months” to backpack and explore new destinations and cultures. He has backpacked across the world, including places such as Syria. When RITZ met him one Wednesday afternoon, he had just returned from a 2-week Japanese holiday where he witnessed the country being blanketed with cherry blossoms. Oliver Kaye, CEO – GAP Business, who now lives near the Ulsoor Lake in Bengaluru, loves to explore new cultures and destinations by traveling on a shoe-string budget and taking trams, buses and trains wherever possible. “Next on my list are Africa, Tibet, Bhutan, and in India it is Ladakh and Darjeeling,” says the debonair CEO who “works to live, and does not live to work.”
