When the IT sector of country is actually having trepidation of spooking recession in the near future, one of India’s IT giant HCL is getting overhauled with the announcement of new Chairman of Board of Directors ROSHNI NADAR MALHOTRA – daughter of tech grandee MR. SHIV NADAR who decided to step down from the position. However, he remains to be the Managing director with the designation of a Chief Strategy Officer.
Well the Brand New Chair of the company is country’s wealthiest woman with a mammoth net worth of Rs 36,800 crore, which even bagged her 54th standing on the list of most powerful woman in the world, according to Forbes.
The upcoming tech mogul actually wants to showcase the leadership from the top of the bottom of pyramid hence focusing more on bizdev. Access, opportunity and creating a platform were the authentic incentives behind the vision of VIDIYA GYAN providing elite scholarships to the economically unprivileged in the organic state of UTTAR PRADESH.
The youngest philanthropist Roshni Nadar Malhotra surmises that learning doesn’t change between philanthropy and business, an idea is as good as its execution no matter which industry you are in as the world is constantly shifting variables so one has to be constantly prepared for that.
Married to the executive director and member of the board at HCL who also serves as vice chair and CEO of HCL Healthcare Shikhar Malhotra, Roshni is the only child of Shiv Nadar. She completed her graduation at Northwestern University while also holding Master’s degree in business administration from Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. However while breaking this big news, SHIV NADAR made crystal clear that the strategy of the business is very well thought off. Also no major changes would be seen in the company’s strategies as NADAR continues to play a crucial role in decision making committee.
Before setting off for this new journey she has had several roles in the organization but what’s strange is that she never wanted to be a part of this family business instead she chose to work as an intern in media houses such as CNBC and CNN. In fact this tech honcho is also trained classical musician.
Well according to the recent trends it seems the “modern business” can’t just rest on its laurels. You always need to make sure you’re reacting to your customers’ changing needs, and ideally anticipating them before they even identify them themselves.
So it will be exciting to see what comes out of this venture when she sets her sail on the ocean of technology and how she makes a dent with her pragmatic and subtle life changing choices.
