AM Naik, L&T’s longest serving boss, was once nearly rejected by the engineering company
Updated : December 31, 2019 12:02 PM IST
Naik, then a fresh engineering graduate from Birla Vishwakarma Mahavidyalaya in Gujarat, didn’t make the cut because L&T preferred to hire IITians.
So he joined a small company called Nestor Boilers where he quickly rose up the ranks to head a contingent of 350 workers.
However, after the company changed hands from a Parsi to a Gujarati family, Naik realised his growth would be stifled and so he decided to walk.
