Ms Lavanya Nalli
Chairperson - Nalli Group
Lavanya, 33, the first woman to join the family business, had proved her mettle within a short span. The soft-spoken scion of the Rs 650 crore turnover Nalli Silks played a pivotal role in setting up new stores and increasing the revenues of the company. Lavanya, who soon after joining in a masterstroke launched Nalli Next, a sub-brand to cater to the tastes of contemporary women in 2007.
