Though 38-year-old Lukhbir (Luke) Roopra was born in Hertfordshire, UK, his Indian roots have played a major role in is life as a businessman. He credits his parents, both of Indian heritage, with instilling a good work ethic in him from a young age. "In business, what satisfies me most now is when a client really sees that we are truly looking out for their interest and their success," he says. "It really works and is rooted in my background." He plans to pass these values on to his children. "When the kids get in their teens, we plan to make a trip to Asia so they can experience the history," he adds.
