Mukesh Ambani’s daughter, Isha Ambani, is leading Reliance Retail, a valuable part of Reliance Industries worth more than Rs 1754000 crore. As the talk of Reliance Retail’s IPO grows, an important executive, Dr. Anil Kumar Misra, who was the Chief People Officer for the New Commerce Grocery business, has left to start his tech venture.
He joined Reliance Retail in 2021 and worked there until Isha Ambani took charge in August 2022. Isha Ambani, chosen by Mukesh Ambani, currently heads Reliance Retail, valued at a massive Rs 820000 crore.
Before joining Reliance Retail, Misra worked with various companies like Magicbricks, JustDial, Jay Prakash Group, Oberoi Hotels, Enercon, Denso, Patni Computers, and more. He has received an Honorary Doctorate from the USA for his HR contributions and is a respected HR thought leader in India. He engages with students worldwide through his YouTube channel.
Although Misra’s time at Reliance Retail was short, he played a significant role in its success. Reliance Retail, with 2.5 lakh employees, offers global brands like Jimmy Choo, Georgio Armani, Hugo Boss, Versace, Michael Kors, Brooks Brothers, Armani Exchange, Burberry, and others.
With 78 crore store visits and over 100 crore transactions, Reliance Retail is among the world’s top 10 retailers and the only Indian one in the global top 100. Over the years, Reliance Retail has attracted investments from reputable global firms and sovereign wealth funds.
