Namrata ChotraniChief Executive OfficerKhadim India
Namrata was a fresher when she joined KPMG in India in 2006 through campus placements. At the time, she recalls, recession was taking over and not many graduates in the country were getting jobs. The firm was looking for people with a business development (BD) profile to build its M&A tax team from scratch and Namrata was one of the chosen few to join immediately.
Being her first job, this was an incredible opportunity, especially since she was one of the only two women hired initially. Facing a steep learning curve, Namrata was quick to admire and emulate her leaders’ strong work ethic, driven by two hard and fast rules – work hard and be persistent – which she adheres to, to this day.
One of the few to witness the evolution of a growing Tax team, Namrata found the firm’s environment quite stimulating. Although she found BD exciting, she felt a strong pull towards transactions. Despite not having a CA background, she persevered and trained until her move to transactions – a team she worked with till her very last day at the firm.
Today, she is the CEO of one of India’s largest branded footwear retail players, joining the ranks of Indian CEOs under the age of 40. She plans to take Khadim’s legacy of four decades, along with the company’s vision of ‘affordable fashion for all’, in an inclusive way. As the new CEO, she faces the challenge of driving accountability, ownership of work, brand belief, bridging generational differences and moving her firm towards a more goal-oriented, meritocratic culture, irrespective of gender.
Namrata believes that her journey beyond KPMG in India to CEOship at Khadim India has been always guided by her learnings at the firm. If she was not initially allowed to chart her own path, she would not be where she is today. She believes that there is no alternative to sheer hard work; persistence is key and if you commit yourself to a vision, success will eventually follow.
