CMD, Nestle India

He was called back from Manila to steer Nestle’s business out of crisis after the company lost hundreds of crores owing to the ban on the sale of Maggi noodles in May 2015. But less than a year’s time he managed to bring Maggi back to the number 1 position in the instant noodles category. Suresh Narayanan, Chairman and MD, Nestle India Ltd can righty be called as Nestle’s wizard. Under his leadership the biggest food company in the world has launched a record number of products in India in the past two years and the brand is also entering newer categories like specialised healthcare products, skincare etc.
