Rex Ekaireb, of London, comes from very humble beginnings. Having achieved a great deal in the business world, Ekaireb made the admirable transition into charity work, helping a variety of causes.
Starting out as a chartered accountant in London, Ekaireb gained valuable experience in the sphere of finance and venture capital. Qualifying as a chartered accountant, Ekaireb practiced and honed his trade for a number of years, making the move into London’s bustling diamond market in 1982.
Alongside his brothers-in-law, he quickly managed to raise a very successful business on the road to success. By 1986, barely half a decade after starting out in the jewelry trade, Ekaireb’s business was snapped up by a large UK listed company. Realizing that Rex brought years of experience and understanding to the business, he was kept on by the large company as a member of the board.
The company continued to grow under the leadership and watchful eye of Rex Ekaireb and he was soon promoted to an advising role, helping further grow the already profitable business. Purchasing other jewelry firms, Ekaireb further drove company profits, and it eventually became one of the largest retailers of wedding rings to the UK.
By 1992, Ekaireb made the move to the UK property market at a time where the jewelry business was in recline. He invested his profits from the previous job into the buy-to-let property market, which would prove a very wise move indeed. By 2006, Ekaireb completely moved into the property market and by 2007, had established a respectable job portfolio.
In recent years, Rex Ekaireb has dedicated himself to a variety of noble charitable causes in the UK and around the world. A cause particularly close to Rex’s heart and something that keeps him grounded is his affinity to helping children and those in need. He supports London’s globally-renowned Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, donating hundreds of toys for the hospital's children. He has worked extensively with the British Red Cross and other charities of note.
Ekaireb spends a lot of efforts assisting the United Nations. With many political prisoners, particularly in Eastern Europe, there are countless families and children who are inevitably left behind. The children are the ones who end up on the losing end. Over the years, Ekaireb has worked tirelessly to help these families across the continent.
It is in large part thanks to his own personal journey and life experiences which have led Rex to dedicate so much of his time and resources to charity. In the current global climate, Rex Ekaireb continues to help those who're truly in need. While his business achievements were the driving force behind his charity work, charity, itself, has now become the top priority. While many are watching Netflix and chasing coffee subscriptions, Rex Ekaireb's main concern is helping those in need.
