Co-founder and COO of Kopi Kenangan
Before he became the COO of grab-and-go coffee chain Kopi Kenangan, James Prananto had built a career as an executive in Media Nusantara Citra (MNC), one of Indonesia's biggest media conglomerates. Prananto, who holds an MBA from the Loyola Marymount University, USA, started his career at Bakrie Brothers as an investment analyst. The stint only lasted for a few months before he joined MNC. Between 2013 and 2015, he worked his way up to become assistant head of investor relations and corporate finance. In 2015, he became the head of marketing for MNC's e-commerce branch, Mister Aladin, and held the role until 2018, a year after he established Kopi Kenangan with Edward Tirtanata.
