A Fresh Outlook
Pearl Global was established by Deepak Seth in 1987. It is one of the few Indian apparel export houses that are listed on the Indian Stock Exchange. The company’s USP is that it offers multi-country manufacturing and a whole range of products all under one roof. Many of the company’s milestones can be accredited to Mr. Deepak, under whom the business has grown by leaps and bounds.

He is now the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Pearl Global and under his guidance, the company has grown to be a $300 million venture with a workforce of over 32,000 people.
