The power of philanthropy, civic responsibility, public service & the promotion of multiculturalism

Philip Bliss |

Muraly Srinarayanathas is the Executive Chairman of 369 Global Inc., a rapidly growing business conglomerate based in Toronto with interests in education and training, financial services, creative and entertainment, venture capital, and more. Having lived and worked in North America, Europe, South Asia, and Southeast Asia for over 25 years, Muraly possesses not only a strong business acumen but also a unique global perspective and the ability to bring together diverse groups of people around a common goal, which he has termed “The Maestro Mindset”.

Muraly is a strong believer in the power of philanthropy. Ever since he launched his first social purpose business under the guidance of Dr. Muhammad Yunus, the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Muraly has continued to harness his networks to create social change. Inspired by nearly a century-old tradition of philanthropy that first began with his grand-uncle in Jaffna, Sri Lanka and continued with his father, Muraly also oversees the Srinarayanathas Foundation, which supports a wide variety of causes in education, health, and economic empowerment – both in Canada and around the world.

Muraly has a B.A. from the University of Manitoba, an M.B.A. from Southeast University (Bangladesh), an LL.M. from the University of Toronto, and has studied Digital Strategy at the Harvard Business School. In 2017, the Canadian Board Diversity Council named Muraly in its Diversity50 cohort as individuals with the greatest potential to impact Canada’s corporate boards and improve global competitiveness.

Muraly firmly believes in civic responsibility, public service, and the promotion of Canadian multiculturalism. Married with two children, Muraly hopes to build a strong future for his family and community; one where young Canadians (and new Canadians) can fulfill their goals and dreams together.
