Rami Ranger

Rami Ranger was raised to the peerage as Baron Ranger of Mayfair in the City of Westminster, in 2019. Born in 1947 in Gujranwala (now Pakistan), Rami started life in a refugee camp in India with his mother and seven siblings, two months after his father was assassinated for opposing the breakup of India.

He came to England in May 1971, intent on studying law. Rather than finding the streets paved with gold as he thought, the government withdrew funding for foreign nationals to study and he prepared to return to India. However, before returning home, he needed to earn some money. This led to a job at KFC as a cook for 35p an hour and continued to work several jobs until he set up his business to source British supermarket products for his overseas customers who were facing difficulties. Rami is the chairman and managing director of Sea, Air & Land Forwarding Ltd and the founder of Sun Mark Ltd, the only company in Britain to have won an unprecedented five consecutive Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in International Trade.


Ranger was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire in the 2005 Birthday Honours for services to business and the Asian community and Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2016 New Year Honours for services to business and community cohesion. Ranger is the chairman of the British Sikh Association. Ranger was appointed the joint chairman of the Conservative Friends of India in 2018, with Zac Goldsmith MP, a group affiliated to the Conservative Party which aims to build stronger links between the Party, the British Indian community and India.
