Ms. Nisaba Godrej

Independent Director

Nisaba is the Chairperson and Managing Director of Godrej Consumer Products. She has been a key architect of GCPL’s strategy and transformation in the last decade. In 2007, she initiated and led Project Leapfrog, which created a playbook for GCPL to accelerate domestic organic growth through innovation and consolidation, and to become a more global company by investing in emerging markets outside of India. Over the last ten years, GCPL’s market capitalisation has increased twenty-fold and GCPL has developed a very strong, engaged and ambitious team, and is consistently ranked as a great place to work. She has also institutionalised design driven thinking and directly leads product development.

Nisaba is passionate about identifying and developing the talent required for the Godrej Group’s future growth. Through her oversight of the Group HR function for Godrej Industries and associate companies, she has made Godrej a more meritocratic and highly performance driven organisation, while keeping the Group’s values front and center. She has also spearheaded the Group’s Good & Green agenda to drive more inclusive and sustainable growth. Her previous assignments within the Godrej Group have included the successful turnaround of Godrej Agrovet and the creation of a Group strategy function to oversee the Group’s portfolio. In addition to GCPL, Nisaba is also on the Board of Godrej Agrovet, VIP industries and is the Chairperson of Teach For India.

Nisaba has a B.Sc degree from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from Harvard Business School. She is passionate about education, the human mind, trekking and equestrian sports
