Director, Reliance Retail Ventures
Director, Reliance Jio
Only time will tell how and when the wheels of succession start rolling at India’s largest private sector company, Reliance Industries Limited. But, there’s no doubt that Rs 5.39 lakh crore oil-to-telecom conglomerate will be in good hands with the next generation leadership in 30-year-old Ambani twins, Akash and Isha. In about 7 years since they joined as Director at Reliance Jio Infocomm and Reliance Retail Ventures, they have displayed firebrand entrepreneurship and have left their mark on the way the Reliance conglomerate is growing. Whether it is a divestment of stake to Google, Facebook, General Atlantic, or Saudi Arabia’s sovereign Public Investment Fund (PIF), or acquisition spree of Reliance Retail or fundraising, all have had a clear imprint of the twins’ ideas and leadership. The duo is playing a key role in the transformation of Reliance Industries from an old economy company to a new-age technology company.
