On assuming the position and title of Managing Director at the QI Group of companies, he has managed to transform the group into one of the most profitable and admirable brands in the business and corporate world. This has been largely attributed to the spirituality and sense of integrity that he brings in the business.
However, the most illuminating feature of Joseph Bismark’s merging of spirituality and business is the way he has managed to handle success.

His basic and simple lifestyle has seen his taste the highest echelons of success while still maintain his humble demeanor and the values that he learned while maintain the virtues that he harbored. As a forward thinker, he has always treated the employees of the group with a deep sense of respect and at the same time encourages them to grow through a sense of brotherhood.
