Come 2013, Tanya Dubash, who oversees marketing initiatives for the Godrej companies, will complete 20 years with the group. "Looking back we could have done some things differently, but everything we did has been a huge learning," says the 43-year-old daughter of patriarch Adi Godrej.

Biggest Challenge

Need to put our minds together to provide strong leadership in both business and politics

She is also on the boards of Godrej Industries and Godrej Agrovet. With every passing year, the Rs 4,850-crore Godrej Consumer Products, the group flagship, has been expanding its geographical footprint through acquisitions.

The last fiscal year was no different, with two buys, one in Chile and the other in South Africa. Dubash says brand integration with the global acquisitions has been smooth. "Most of the companies we bought were family-owned like ours and had similar values," she adds.
