Besides being on the board of directors at Aditya Birla Nuvo Limited, he is also the Chairman of the CII’s task force on textiles for Karnataka? Due to his exceptional achievements & invaluable experience in the textile industry, he was awarded the ‘Super Achiever Award’ by the Indira Group of Insitutes, Pune, in 2003. Talking about Rao, Abhijit Ganguly, Brand Director, Grasim Industries told 4Ps B&M, “He is an inspirational leader for all of us around in the company. In fact, he is an ideal boss for any youngster to work under. What makes him so very special is that he knows how to trust his team completely and that has given all of us huge opportunities to take risks and achieve much more than what we are capable of...” Under him, the company has improved its overall position in the domestic market also fuelled by the current growth in retail industry. ‘Ah!
