Dinner with Mentor II : Shanti L. Poedjosoetjipto – Soedarpo Group

Dinner with Mentor II : Shanti L. Poedjosoetjipto (Soedarpo Group)
“Family Management, The Soedarpo Way”
Wednesday, 21 October 2015
18.00 PM
1945 Restaurant – Fairmont Hotel
Jalan Asia Afrika No. 8 Senayan – Jakarta Selatan



Although her father is the owner of the company, Shanti Lasminingsih Poesposoetjipto did not automatically get a top position in her father’s company. A 1974 graduate of electronic engineering specializing in computer science from Germany’s Technische Universitat Munchen, she had to apply for the position of manager at her father’s company, NVPD Soedarpo Corporation which is highly selective in recruiting managerial personnel.

Between 1974 and 1997, Shanti learned everything about the shipping business at Samudera Indonesia and built her career in various information technology projects. Currently, Shanti, the eldest of three daughters of Soedarpo Corporation owner Soedarpo Sastrosatomo, is the acting executive director at the Partnership for Governance Reform in Indonesia institution, whose mission is to reform the government by fighting corruption and encouraging decentralization.

Shanti is a member of the supervisory boards of Samudra Indonesia and several other companies outside the Soedarpo Corporation such as PT Timah Tbk and RaboBank International Indonesia. She is also active in various national and international organizations such as Yayasan Sejati, German-Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (EKONID) and the Indonesian Telecommunications Society.

Retirement seems to be a word alien to the woman, who was born in 1948. Shanti quickly agreed when Erna Witoelar, a prominent NGO activist and former Cabinet minister, asked her to join the Partnership Governance Reform in Indonesia along with Erry Riyana Hardjapamekas, former president director of PT Timah and now a high-ranking official of the Commission on Eradication of Corruption, and Heru Prasetyo, former CEO of Andersen Consulting (now Accenture).

The initial concept of this institution, namely cooperation involving the government, the community and the private sector to ensure that there is openness, accountability, etc. appeals to her. The founders of this institution also tried to apply good management by recruiting their leaders professionally. For this purpose, they used the services of a head hunter. Under this recruitment system, HS Dillon was named the institution’s executive director between 2003 and 2005. While he has yet to be replaced, Shanti has been named acting executive director of the institution, which since 2000 has managed some 260 projects at a cost of some US$50 million.

Just as she took care of the newly established Praweda, Shanti is slowly re-ordering the working methods of her staffers. Today the employees not only do their job but they must share their experiences with fellow employees. “”I am just trying to open their eyes and broaden their minds,”” Shanti, who received various awards including the Women Inspire Award 2002 for Information Technology from Singapore’s Singaswiss Event Services Pte. Ltd., said modestly.
