Power Chief: Chitra Ramkrishna
The current chief of India’s largest bourse, the National Stock Exchange, shattered the glass ceiling by becoming the first woman to fill the shoes of a MD and CEO of a stock exchange in India. Chitra Ramkrishna is also one of the three women in Asia to do so. She has been a part of NSE’s founding team and has grown with the institution. A chartered accountant by profession, she was a part of the five-member team selected by the government to set up a screenbased pan-India stock exchange. Her role in the decision making process has strengthened NSE’s network that extends to a large number of cities across the country. Entering into overseas markets was another achievement for this lady who believes that her actions must speak louder than words.
Her policy: Be honest. “The road to success both personally and professionally is by being honest in whatever one does.”
Coping with competition: “Competition is an integral part of the evolution of any industry and in the same vein we take it in our stride.”
On handling power: “It helps you take the right decisions and helps you to empower others.”
Key for work-life balance: Good time management.
Passionate about: Carnatic music.
Loves to: Play the veena.
