ABOUT DORRY KORDAHI:
A well-respected and highly successful entrepreneur based in Sydney, Dorry is the quintessential self-starter and innovator who built his market-leading company in the field of corporate merchandise and uniforms from nothing.
A highly regarded and experienced industry professional, he is the winner of numerous, prestigious industry awards, such as being an Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year finalist. He has been featured on BRW’s Young Rich and Fast Starters lists some six times.
Before establishing himself as a business leader, he went from being a HSC failure to an apprentice hairdresser in one of Sydney’s outer suburbs and then a professional basketball player. Along the way he was a young towel boy for the legendary Sydney Kings, a team he later became a co-owner of. His passion for the sport is undiminished and he now sits on the Advisory Board for the NBL (National Basketball League) as well as The Entourage (Leading Education Business).
His initial foray into business was formed as a plan scribbled on just three sheets of paper and started from his parents’ backyard shed when he was twenty-five.
Yet despite these humble beginnings it took him just two short years to build the foundations of what would become a true success story.
His business interests, principally in promotional marketing have also spanned the sports, fashion and music industries and he is passionate about mentoring and incubating start-ups.
