Frost & Sullivan will acknowledge the leadership, achievements, and tremendous contribution of Anu Aga, Non-Executive Director of Thermax Ltd, at the eighth edition of its executive summit on October 5, 2016 at Hyatt Regency, Mumbai. The 2016 Growth Innovation and Leadership Award will be presented to Ms. Aga at GIL 2016: India.
Celebrating her success story, Frost & Sullivan applauds Aga’s perseverance, diligence, and efforts in leading Thermax Ltd amid arduous challenges. Her progressive strategies in transforming Thermax (through board and operations restructuring and increased customer focus) and her devotion toward social welfare beyond the boardroom makes her the rightful recipient of this prestigious accolade. Inducted into the GIL Hall of Fame at the event, Aga will become a part of an elite roster of leaders such as Ratan Tata, Richard Branson, Jack Andraka, Desmond Tutu, and other revered visionaries.
Announcing the 2016 award, David Frigstad, Chairman, Frost & Sullivan said, “The strength and caliber of a great leader is defined by the decision he or she makes when faced with unprecedented adversities. In spite of the daunting challenges, they stand resolute to address obstacles, reaching the pinnacle of their leadership prowess. They inspire not just their employees, but even society to surge ahead and continue the journey to success.”
Anu Aga, besides orchestrating the turnaround story of Thermax Ltd, has been one of the most influential promoters of philanthropic activities in India. She has interests in the cause of primary education for the underprivileged. She is the Chairperson of the Thermax Foundation and Teach for India and an active Board Member of Akanksha, all of which work relentlessly toward bridging the inequality gap in education.
Praising her efforts and commitment toward philanthropy, David Frigstad added, “It gives us great pride to bestow Anu Aga in this year’s Growth Innovation and Leadership Award at GIL 2016: India. Her contribution to business and society, her endearing personality, and her determination is an inspiration, not just for the leaders of today, but also for the visionaries of tomorrow in leading, guiding, and growing their enterprise as well as their people and society.”
