Nisaba Godrej


Blame it on her lineage that she has the inborn instinct to introduce innovations, and assimilate her own style to run a business. Nisaba Godrej, a Wharton, and Harvard Business School alumni, has taken some of the most unconventional paths to bring about change in the company she heads. Younger daughter of Adi Godrej, she is the Executive Director of Godrej Consumer Products Limited (GCPL) and is a board member of GCPL, Godrej Agrovet and Teach for India. Nisaba has taken some tough decisions along the way that includes changing the senior leadership, taking new portfolio decisions and strategising global expansion of GCPL.

Through her commitment, she has changed the face of Godrej Agrovet, which has become one of the largest and most profitable arms of the Group. Godrej has effectively steered the boat and has positioned her company as an entity that embraces change with time. Moreover, she has dexterously amalgamated the modern techniques with the traditional ethos of Godrej – trust and integrity.
The company has come up with many products in the past in the category of hair colour, insecticides, and home and car fragrances. Under Nisaba’s leadership, Godrej has become synonymous with innovation!
