Leader’s Approach

" A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves."

Well into the 4th decade of its business operations, the Centena Group has flourished into a global conglomerate and is currently steered by the able hands of its visionary Chairman and Managing Director Sanjay Raghunath. An MBA in Marketing & Finance and a firm believer in “efforts never fail”, Sanjay started his career from scratch by responding positively to changing market dynamics and investing significantly in human capital. His contribution to build a robust organization with a solid foundation is certain to stand the test of time.

As Sanjay puts it, “Succession planning is more than a side note; it demands consistent and long-term emphasis from the highest levels of management, down to the latest entrant in the organisation. Over the years, Centena has refined a systematic approach in identifying, vetting and mentoring talented employees and building their abilities for handling higher level responsibilities.”

Leadership at Centena is not just about being business ready. Our leaders take an active interest in the professional development of their subordinates and strive to empower them with tools necessary to create future leaders. Strong standards of ethics are applied to various corporate social initiatives. In the Chairman’s words, “Besides all things we do, we produce leaders. They have been the pillars of our organization”.
