Brian Marshal, Founder and CEO of SIRCLO, expressed his pride and respect in welcoming the two prominent figures who have experience in accelerating the growth of established businesses in Indonesia, for over three decades.
“As the go-to figures behind the growth of multiple big companies in Indonesia, Mr. Triawan and Mr. Maurits share the same vision with SIRCLO, which is to help business players adapt and transition to the digital realm through the omnichannel strategy,” said Brian. “We look forward to learning from them and expanding the company’s positive social and economic impact in supporting the growth of businesses through e-commerce, for both MSMEs and enterprise businesses alike. Together, we hope to become a sustainable company that could shape the foundation of Indonesia’s digital economy and boost the nation’s economy in the long run.”

Sharing the same vision with SIRCLO to help nurture Indonesian entrepreneurs, Triawan Munaf stated, “The need to carry out digital transformation has become inevitable for business players across various scales—and even more so for MSMEs, who are the primary drivers of our economy. I have seen how SIRCLO helps this segment substantially through various ideas and solutions. Hence, I believe that their capability would contribute to the exponential growth of Indonesian MSMEs. I am excited to join SIRCLO, as this is in line with my vision of increasing the added-value of various Creative Economy sub-sectors, most of which consist of MSMEs,” he added.
Committed to advancing SIRCLO, Maurits Lalisang is a distinguished leader who has an excellent track record of four decades, namely 11 years as CEO and 6 years as President Commissioner in PT Unilever Indonesia Tbk., a prominent multinational company. Through his various breakthroughs and innovations, he has succeeded in strengthening Unilever’s position as the market leader in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry. Currently, he is serving as the President Commissioner of PT Multi Bintang Indonesia Tbk, Commissioner of PT ICI Paints Indonesia, Commissioner of PT Deltomed Laboratories and as a Partner of the Saratoga Group, an active investment company in Indonesia.
Cementing his support for the e-commerce industry that has grown rapidly in the last two years, Maurits said, “I am very proud to know SIRCLO, an e-commerce enabler company that empowers thousands of MSME and enterprises, which in turn will bring massive contribution to Indonesia’s economic growth. It is an honor to join the company, in the process of developing SIRCLO’s business in the future.
