Mukesh Ambani on Monday outlined the succession plan for various businesses under the Reliance Industries empire. While Akash Ambani has already been appointed the Chairman of Reliance Jio, Isha Ambani has taken over the retail business and Anant has joined New Energy business.

“At a time when a bright future is beckoning Reliance, what gives me optimism is our huge reservoir of young, dynamic and best-in-class talent. Our next-gen leaders are confidently taking over the reins across businesses. Akash and Isha have assumed leadership roles in Jio and Retail, respectively. They have been passionately involved in our consumer businesses since their inception. Anant has also joined our New Energy business with great zeal. In fact, he is spending most of his time in Jamnagar,” Mukesh said.

“All three have fully inherited our Founder’s mindset. They are first-among-equals in a young team of leaders and professionals who are already doing amazing things at Reliance. Of course, all of them are being mentored on a daily basis by our senior leaders, including myself and the Board of Directors,” he added.

Mukesh said all the next-gen leaders are determined, focussed and brimming with fresh ideas and creativity. “They think big and fast. They have the courage to dream, as well as the ability to execute them. Above all, they have humility, empathy and they care,” he said, adding that he sees Dhirubhai Ambani's pioneering spirit in action in them.
