FIRST AMONG EQUALS
There is an entire lexicon of attributes that works in conjunction to create a state of being that can be described as achievement. Grit, focus, vision, perseverance, talent and as Napoleon Hill puts it, “desire,” which is the starting point of every success story, are essential factors that propel individuals to the winner’s podium and mark them out as extraordinary.
Our Achievers’ List celebrates this select group of people. Establishing new frontiers with the scope of their corporate ambition, these game changers stamped 2016 with their emphatic presence and emerged as the biggest newsmakers of a rapidly evolving India.
Achievement is a quality synonymous with Vikram Kirloskar. A fourth generation entrepreneur and an engineer from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his list of posts and portfolios reads out like a roll call of pure distinction. Vikram is the Chairman and Managing Director of Kirloskar Systems Ltd, Vice Chairman of Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd. and has, throughout the course of his career, strived to set standards of excellence as an individual and industry leader.
“I feel knowledge and an ability to never stop learning and of course - humility are qualities that are a must in a leader to become a high achiever,” he stated during the course of an exclusive interview with Millionaireasia India. It would be extremely tough, if not downright impossible, to nd a corporate leader who disagrees with Kirloskar’s mantra.
