Dream Big and You Can Do It! This mantra seems to work great for many Corporates and no exception is Ahmedabad based Pankaj Patel, chairman and Managing Director of Zydus Cadila. As the news reported earlier, Zydus outlined an expenditure of Rs 25 crore for the expansion of its Ahmedabad unit a year ago. By 2007,the Company expect 40 per cent sales to come from exports. His dreams of making Zydus a Billion dollar multinational firm by 2010 has seen him acquire a company in France,US, South Africa, Brazil and has his marketing offices in many countries.
No wonder, Pankaj Patel appears in Forbes 40 Richest Indians, 2004!
He was also awarded the Best Pharma Man of 2004.
What impress me the most is that Pankaj Patel is home loving Amdabadi. His love for Ahmedabad is palpable as he says in an Interview that Ahmedabad has a nice and planned development. The city is becoming a better place to live. He even prefers *Shopping' in home town and spends his vacations with his family in India.
This is a real Treat for all of us. At functions, a casual glance of Pankajbhai would not reveal what he possess or wears or what he thinks. But cool, when his mom speaks in an interview in sambhaav metro that he's a devoted and caring son, sure one can feel the person within who has the strong determination and will to Believe in self and Believe in the things he can do! It's an Inspiration and I guess, such Interviews of CMDs will definately encourage the upcoming new generation Management Youth!
