Indra is one of the public relations (PR) figures who we often meet at community events and PR competitions. Including at events organized by PR INDONESIA. 

Indra Ardiyanto, Head of Integration and Communication GGF 


JAKARTA, PRINDONESIA.CO – At that time, besides bringing home the trophy to the company where he worked, we also awarded Indra as Insan PR INDONESIA at the 2019 JAMPIRO event in Bali. 

Last Monday, November 16, we had the opportunity to get to know him better by a video call. There are many stories that have brought Indra, the “engineer", to becoming a "communicator" — a world that never crossed his radar when he was still in school. Maybe Indra is the only PR in the country who has ever built a building. 

Even so, Indra who pursued his bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering at the National Institute of Technology Malang has already gained experience as a PR in many cross-sectors. Starting from telecommunications, pulp, and paper, to the most recent one, the food, agriculture, and livestock sectors. 

At the end of last year, Indra moved from PT RAPP to Great Giant Food (GGF). He was appointed as Head of Integration and Communications GGF. He took the offer due to several factors, including new challenges, being able to be together more with his family in Jakarta, and have more time to complete his doctoral program. Understandably, previously he often is placed at the regional office. To Ratna Kartika from PR INDONESIA, Indra tells his story.
