Business Today speaks to Dow Chemical International President, CEO and Chairman Vipul Shah on the firsts in his life -

My first role model
Ken Jewsbury, my second supervisor at Dow, who taught me how to manage stress

My first job
An application development manager with Reliance Industries. It taught me to dream big and take calculated risks

My first boss
P.N. Devarajan, Chief Executive Officer, Petrochemical Division, Reliance. He gave me the liberty to operate, make decisions and take informed risks

My first promotion

At 33, I was appointed Country Manager for Dow India - the youngest in the Dow system then

My first disappointment

Not getting admission in the engineering college of my choice. It taught me to never give up on my dreams and seize oppor-tunities that came my way
