Suchita Jain was 22 when she joined the Vardhman Group as a director in 1990.
She had to carry forward the legacy set by two generations of entrepreneurs, including her father S P Oswal, and also chart out her career path.
Within a year, she took over the fabric business, setting up its first plant in Himachal Pradesh.
Over the years, the London Business School graduate has turned every challenge into an opportunity and helped the Ludhiana-based textile firm grow into a billion dollar enterprise.
Today, the company exports yarn to nearly 75 countries, has established its presence in Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh and employs more than 28,000 people.
There is a simple secret, says Suchita, for success in any field — passion.
