Industrial Revolution: Accelerated Change and Its Impact on Everything We Do

Dear Friends of CEIBS, 

We cordially invite you to attend our forum on July 4, 2018, where Mr. K.V. Kamath, President of New Development Bank (BRICS Bank) will share his insights on “Industrial Revolution: Accelerated Change and Its Impact on Everything We Do”. 

Mr. K.V. Kamath is one of India’s most accomplished and acknowledged business leaders. He started his illustrious career in 1971 with ICICI, India’s largest private sector bank. In 1988, he joined the Asian Development Bank in the Private Sector department. He returned to India in 1996 as MD & CEO at ICICI Bank. In the following years, ICICI Bank expanded its boundaries and became India’s first ‘universal bank’. Mr. Kamath spearheaded this transition that became a pivotal point in Indian banking. He retired as MD & CEO to become the non-executive Chairman from 2009 to 2015. Mr. Kamath’s other roles include Chairman, Infosys Limited and Co-Chair of World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos. He has also served on the board of Schlumberger Limited.

Mr. Kamath has a degree in Mechanical Engineering and completed his post graduate studies in business administration from the prestigious Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. He has received widespread recognition, including CNBC’s Asian Business Leader of the Year (2001), Businessman of the Year by Forbes Asia (2007) and Business Leader of the Year by The Economic Times, India (2007). In 2008, Mr. Kamath was conferred with the Padma Bhushan, one of India’s highest civilian honours.

We look forward to seeing you at this much anticipated event.
