Banker, commentator, entrepreneur: IIMS get alumni on boards
NEWDELHI: Cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle, speaker and author Anita Bhogle, beauty products maker Nykaa’s founder and former investment banker Falguni Nayar, and Renew Power Limited chief Sumant Sinha are among the graduates of the prestigious Indian Institutes of Management (IIMS) who have now been snapped up by various IIMS for board positions — in keeping with the new IIM Act passed last year that mandated alumni on the boards. “There is a requirement up to five alumni should be on the board of every IIM. many IIM graduates who are now big names in different fields are part of these boards,” said a government official. To be sure, since there are 20 IIMS now, many set up recently, the newer ones were allowed to taken alumni from other IIMS on their board.
