Vijay is the son of industrialist and politician Mr. Murugesh Nirani, the man who groomed him to be a sound decision-maker, an astute businessperson, and a compassionate human being. A strong background in management and emerging business technologies has enabled him to be an active executor and a decision maker.
Vijay has a degree in accounting and business management from the Singapore-based James Cook University and in global family managed business, international trade and business from The SP Jain Institute of Management and Research. His core skill set includes project management, business development, business strategy, and planning and team management.
At the young age of 22 years, he executed and commissioned a 10000 TCD sugar unit, which earned him immense respect and many laurels in the sugar industry. At present, he presides on the board as the MD of three sugar units, namely Nirani Sugars Limited, Shri Sai Priya Sugars Limited, and MRN Cane Power (India) Limited. An inspiring entrepreneur, he is dynamic and is always striving to push the envelope.
Vijay has taken the commendable step to integrate the sugar industry and work towards generating power from sugarcane waste via co-generation. This eco-progressive initiative not only helps meet the power needs of the organization but also export power to the grid.
From establishing the division, commencement and commissioning of project, negotiating the terms of supply, and getting into an agreement with the government, Vijay has been at the helm of affairs of this path-breaking venture. He is now working on capacity enhancement to meet greater demand for power.
Similarly, his strategic thinking has helped promote Turaco Spirits Private Limited as the global beverage brand. With the production facility already underway, Turaco Spirits Private Limited is also well on its way to glory and become another feather in the MRN Group and its young leaders cap.
Vijay is also the key strategist for operations aimed at expanding the market base for Ratna Cements, the company’s cement production unit which has its limestone quarries plentiful enough to keep feeding the cement manufacturing plants for the next four decades. He manages the finances and the marketing operations for Ratna Cements. Through Souhard Credit Society, the banking enterprise under the MRN Group, Vijay aims to expand banking facilities to more than 65 areas, thus envisioning taking the total number of branches to 100 in the next two years.
In the field of education, the conglomerate has initiated doing its bit by establishing two schools that are striving to provide students with the best possible education and facilities. World-class educational infrastructure, sports facilities, and excellent faculty make these institutions outstanding beacons of education.
As the Managing Director of such a diversified group, Vijay is contributing immensely to the rapid growth of the MRN Group of Companies. Owing to his sincere and dedicated efforts, the Group is consistently charting new trajectories of success. His stellar journey of sheer perseverance followed by massive success and glory is an inspiration to umpteen aspiring young businesspersons.
