Kulen is not simply your ordinary industry captain or corporate maven.
He is a visionary strategist with close to three decades experience spanning industry solutions, operations, global marketing and brand architecture. In his mind’s eye, he is a conductor who revels in orchestrating a symphony comprising diverse talent into a cohesive fusion that delivers a work of art – where form meets function with passion and precision.
To him, people are integral to success and are at the heart of every endeavor. Be it the gardener tending to his manicured lawns to the corporate analyst or members of his design and marketing teams – each to be accorded due respect and imbued with the same sense of pride & project ownership.
An engineer by training, he possesses an innate drive for precision: from strategic thought to work process flow and operational deliverables. Matching this, is his unerring eye for details and a near zealous vision to engineer creative ideas that translate into effective, efficient and results-driven solutions. Again – Form must fit Function.
Kulen has led operations, marketing and design teams across North America, Asia and the Middle East in diverse industry sectors breaking new frontiers and forging a distinct innovative approach that he defines as the “Eye like Factor” – where business is driven by connecting aesthetics and visual appeal to functionality and market needs.
He helmed North American furniture solutions system giant Teknion Corporation’s drive to become a global player across Asia’s fast growing markets and the discerning Middle East markets, as its Managing Director for Asia.
He thinks beyond the finite and has pioneered and been instrumental in the development of international art, music and design festivals in many countries including the Bangkok Design Festival and supported creative ventures like the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival in Mumbai – seeing a symmetry between creative elan and industrial excellence.
Today, as the Global Strategic Advisor to cutting-edge Applied Research of Australia (AROA), an applied research industrial tech provider and Founder-President of INSiGHTS XCHANGE, an international consultancy providing end-to-end business and marketing solutions – Kulen continues to deliver his unique strategic solutions to an increasingly competitive market that recognises his global acumen and shares his passion to deliver the extraordinary.
