Mandate Outline

Client is a diversified conglomerate with about $2B in revenues coming from India, MENA and North America. The client has a presence across sectors, notably chemicals, engineering and services. The client also is witnessing a change over from the earlier generation of promoters to the next generation of promoters, with the earlier Group CHRO having retired around the time of the changeover. The firm has a very strong base, in terms of policies, processes and systems. The group has a culture that can be defined as highly collaborative, and highly communicative, with strong ethical boundaries and moral compass.

The Group CHRO will be someone who can blend in well with the cultural landscape and share the same set of values that the group stands for. The Group CHRO is expected to work with the new generation of promoters to take forward and build on top in calibrated phases, in terms of people, policies and processes, to position the group for the next phase of growth, which is imminent. Given the landscape, the group desired to hire an experienced CHRO who delivered transformation while working in a multi-BU, dynamic environment, with a mix of MNC and Indian promoter company experience.
