Ali boasts of a ten-year stint as chief executive officer of JRA Fiji Ltd.
In his Linked-In profile he says he has “ignited some of the most successful brand launches, continuity and re-positioning assignments for brands including Fiji Water, Vodafone, Nestle, Colgate, Coca-Cola, Total, BP, Shell, Digicel, Toyota and others.”
He does not, however, list his association with the SDL for whom he helped run the successful 2006 election campaign. Nor does he list his association with serial conman Peter Foster who had something to say about him in a previous Fijileaks report.
He has now launched his own worldwide Cyclone Winston appeal at a function attended by a Fiji TV crew (he paid for their travel) and former president Ratu Epeli Nailatikau in Singapore.
He gave no indication of how or if the funds he collects will be accounted for.
