Top 100 powerful CEO’s in India

Ratan Tata has done it again – He is the Most Powerful CEO in India. The Economic Times Corporate Dossier magazine has not only voted Mr. Ratan Tata as India Inc’s Most Powerful CEO, second year running, but also India Inc’s CEO of the Decade.

Ratan-Tata

The Top 4 CEOs keep their positions as they had previous year as well – Mukesh Ambani is on 2nd position followed by NR Narayan Murthy (I am not sure as he is not CEO of Infosys anymore) and Anil Ambani takes the 4th position.

The Biggest Jump however has been made by Sunil Mittal, from 9th position last year to 5th this year. I think one of the main reasons has been his aggressiveness in pursuing global acquisitions for Bharti Airtel. In last 12 months, Bharti has made foray in Large African as well as Bangladesh Telecom Market. Bharti Airtel now stands to be the 5th largest telecom company in the world.

Azim Premji (6th), KM Birla (7th), Rahul Bajaj (8th), Anand Mahindra (9th) and Vijay Mallya (10th) round up the top ten positions in the Powerful CEO’s in India.
