Delighted to know that an XL alumnus has gone where no lady had -till she did. Leena Nair of the ’92 batch has been for some months now, Executive Director -HR of Hindustan Unilever Limited.

Leena has been nominated to Hindustan Unilever’s Managing Committee – the first lady to reach such a position in the long and illustrious history of HLL.

In an age where moving around from job to job seems to be the order of the day, Leena has stayed – and grown- in one organisation. She joined HLL in 1992 as a Management Trainee and today – 15 years later is part of the top management team of India’s largest FMCG marketer.

Well done, Leena. You have, I am sure, become a role model for many young HR professionals.
