Determination with a focus
Scion of a renowned family of philanthropists and industrialists, Ashwin is a third-generation business leader. He has been leading the group since 2001. After completing his post-graduation in Management Studies, he joined the family enterprise to gain practical business knowledge and experience.
The group traces its beginnings back to launching India’s first motor scooter. Today, it offers products ranging from soda ash to fertilizers to specialised medical instruments.
Given the diversity of interests, Ashwin observed that the companies needed a unifying focus. He reckoned that consolidating the businesses under a single platform would help establish synergies, boost financial strength and bring accountability for promoting sustainable growth.
Ashwin recognised that re-orienting the group businesses under AM International Holdings was the strategic way forward to preserve his family’s legacy in the new millennium. Ashwin’s passion and strategic business acumen acted as the catalyst for a phenomenal transformation.
To expand the group’s global footprint, Ashwin founded AM UK Holdings and Amrock Ventures in London in 2020. AM UK Holdings is charting a strategic growth path for the group’s future, while Amrock Ventures invests in innovative seed-stage startups with a long-term vision.
