The Leadership Crew

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Ashok Mittal is steeped in tea. It also wouldn’t be wrong to say that we envy him. Spending 4 decades working on something you love is sheer luck, isn’t it? And it is our sheer luck that he is now our CEO. What we love about Ashok is the precision to his personality, which is evident from every little thing he takes care of, be it his urge for brewing the tea to the perfection, or hosting a family dinner. His first cup of tea in the morning outsets his entire day, which means it has to be impeccable like him.

We don’t know what Amit Dutta is better at, Marketing or Orchestrating. If he hadn’t spent 21 years in Marketing, Category Management and Sales, we think he would’ve made for a great Philharmonic Maestro, given his taste for the fine things in life. And hence, his passion for the finest teas India can produce. He knows just the right things to do at the right times, just the right people to talk to for the right things. And he knows how to put them all together to create magic. The management students he teaches could probably wax eloquent on his multitasking capabilities, as would the airline officials who often witness him pole-vaulting into shutting airplane doors.

Sanjay Khosla is best known for making wheels turn, like he did for Wheel, a detergent brand in India. He is also widely known for transformations. Not his own, for he is uncannily consistent. In his over 40 years as a corporate honcho, a Marketer, responsible for 65,000 people in 60 countries, Sanjay has transformed the lives of various brands, lives of people thereby, and certainly P&L sheets. Author of Fewer Bigger Bolder, he is our go-to person when we are in need of some motivation!

Piyush Pandey could single-handedly be credited for making the advertising industry glamourous outside the advertising world in India. The winner of more than 600 awards internationally, he is the only creative person to have held the post of Executive Chairman at Ogilvy & Mather, India. As providence would have it, he was a tea taster before he started pouring forth brilliant copy. Hence, his verdict is twice as precious to us.

It's the gospel truth that the ardor to fitness comes as naturally to K K Sridhar as leaves to a tree. What else could possibly logic his disciplined exercises and brisk walks even in the frost!? This surely explains his avid love for sports (also the larger-than-life sized poster of Roger Federer in his study!). An experience of over 40 years which includes curating tea with brands like Lipton and Brooke Bond (before the merger, of course!), and building brands like HLL, it's his tyrannous passion for driving business growth and innovation that toes the mark for us.

With tea as her forte, Kakali blogs about everything tea. Hailing from Kolkata where tea dominates every "adda", and a family that is as fond of tea as a bibliophile is of books, she is an ardent tea enthusiast for reasons very obvious. Having travelled to far flung tea plantations across the country, she certainly has an edge when it comes to knowing the brew. And her love for interacting with different people comes naturally when we make a pitch of our teas. But, it is her serendipitous nature that takes the cake away, whenever and however we need her.
