At Godrej, I lead...

Marketing for the consumer brands Cinthol, aer and Protekt.

I'm most proud of...

Growing the household insecticide brand, HIT, from 40 to 450 crore INR in 8 years; the fastest that any brand grew in this period in Godrej Consumer Products. I am also immensely proud of launching Godrej aer, which has become a strong #2 player in the air care space within only a few years.

The biggest lesson I've learnt so far is...

Given the overwhelming standard of talent today, what differentiates you from the crowd is passion and a risk-taking attitude, which help you recognise an opportunity when it comes your way and make the most of it.

What's new at work?

Every day presents a whole new possibility and a challenge! Each of my brands has new launches planned out and a strong pipeline of ideas.

What I look for in my team?

Passion, commitment, willingness to unlearn, relearn and experiment.

Most people don't know that...

I was the first woman Area Sales Manager in the FMCG sector for East India.

Why Godrej?

What I treasure most is the empowerment to create and chase 'new, never done before' goals.

I love...

Music. I've recently begun learning the guitar!

At Godrej, I lead...

Creative Communications at Godrej Consumer Products-anything from on-pack nomenclature to digital campaigns to TV ads and anything in-between.

I'm most proud of...

BBLUNT products. In terms of positioning, this range is a first for Godrej (and for India). They are the embodiment of the salons-vibrant, sexy, tongue-in-cheek and professional. The fact that so many functions across Godrej have come together on this project is thrilling.

The biggest lesson I've learnt so far is...

Half-lined blazers are 100% more useful than fully lined.

What's new at work?

Most of the projects I work on are highly confidential, so if I told you I would be putting my life in serious danger. What I can tell you is that we've got some major digital aspirations for our Darling brand, so keep an eye out there. Oh, and BBLUNT is about to launch something major, so hold tight.

What I look for in my team?

Idea machines. Coffee enthusiasts. People with ridiculous amounts of energy. A major sense of humour is non-negotiable.

Most people don't know that...

I am Saif Ali Khan's body double.

Why Godrej?

For such a well-established company, it is incredibly entrepreneurial. Good ideas come from every corner of the business. That and the fact that we have such big aspirations. Oh, and there's a Starbucks in the office-what is not to love???

I love...

Pretending to be Saif Ali Khan's body double. Coffee. Funk. Gin. Dancing.

At Godrej, I lead...

Scaling up of consumer products in Africa business and facilitating in mergers and acquisitions.

I'm most proud of...

Building a platform for Godrej in Africa, our largest investment outside of India.

The biggest lesson I've learnt so far...

Is one of many from Adi Godrej - never, ever check in your bags.

What's new at work?

From being the largest hair care player in Africa, we are now making a strong play to enter other categories, like household and insecticides.

What I look for in my team?

100/0 (a philosophy of 100% accountability with 0 excuses), and a burning desire to grow as people.

Most people don't know that...

I never wanted to get into management.

Why Godrej?

It's the only place I know that encourages you to choose your own canvas and provides you tremendous autonomy in painting it, such that it reflects your best potential.

I love...

Trying new food, the potential that a child represents, the spirit that is India, travelling and the challenge of a problem.

At Godrej, I lead...

The GPL Design Studio, redevelopment for Vikhroli and Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability at Godrej Properties.

I'm most proud of...

Our Group's commitment to and focus on innovation, design and sustainability.

The biggest lesson I've learnt so far...

Is to embrace learning and evolve constantly. There is always 'better' to get to, 'best' is temporary.

What's new at work?

The Trees - Godrej Properties' flagship project at Vikhroli
Imagine Studio - Our first completed adaptive reuse experience centre at Vikhroli
Godrej One - Our new innovative workspace and HQ building
Godrej BKC - Our upcoming Class A commercial building in BKC

What I look for in my team?

Out of the box design thinking, storytelling, practical problem solving, whole brained approach to business, customer centricity and a general zest for creating, curating and celebrating unique experiences.

Most people don't know that...

Design is not a business vertical. It is a business horizontal.

Why Godrej?

Because the company provides me an unparalleled environment to live, learn, work and play!

I love...

Travelling the world-particularly ancient cities; entrenching myself in the palimpsest of cultures and traditions over the years, restoring found artefacts, writing/drawing, sampling and cooking different types of food, making serendipitous conversations, and connecting the dots almost like time travel across the both the visible and the invisible.
