Ramazan Patak serves as the President and CEO of Globaltex Fine Linens, a luxury linen company that specializes in meeting the needs of hotels, resorts, cruise lines and residences. The company produces bed linens, towels, pool towels, pool chair covers, bath robes, curtains, terry bags, throw blankets and more.

He started his business in Fort Lauderdale’s Oakland Park. After years of success in that location, Patak expanded the business in December 2016 and moved to Miami where he opened a showroom and warehouse in Miami’s Little River District. The move was strategic so that Patak could be more readily accessible to his numerous clients in the hospitality industry.

With a motto not to postpone anything in life, Patak says, “Don’t delay anything, do it now and do it today because tomorrow is never promised.” He added, “No matter how difficult things get, don’t give up on your dreams and remember to keep those dreams realistic.” And this motto is clearly working well for the businessman as he was chosen in May 2018 as one of the Top 20 under 40 Professionals in Miami.
