HDFC Bank, recently announced that Jagdishan would take over as managing director from October 27.
Here's the complete letter he wrote to all employees:
I haven’t been happier than I’m now as I write this. I’ve always maintained our best is yet to come, and with Sashi now at the helm I have no doubt that our best will come. I wouldn’t go into the qualities he possesses because most of us would know that. Suffice to say that in him you have the best person to lead and I have the worthiest person to hand over the baton to.
Like I‘ve always said I’m just the face of the success called HDFC Bank. It’s you that the real credit goes to. We wouldn’t be what we are today without you. So take a bow and keep showering on Sashi the same love and affection that you’ve showered on me all these years for which I’m going to remain eternally grateful to you.
If I look back, 26 years seems like yesterday. From my first office with broken chairs to now, what we’ve achieved in this time is incredible and doesn’t have too many parallels globally. Sample some of our achievements that I’m very proud of:
That's something for all of us to be proud of.
I’m very sure the HDFC Bank family will rise to this occasion and make the most of it.
Puri built the bank from scratch and turned it into the largest private sector lender in India.
