Founding Chairman – Aditya Group
Late Bhaskar Aditya
The man behind the Group. It is for his vision and dynamic leadership that Aditya Group today stands tall and high, serving millions of people in various sectors.
Though from a family of business background, he chose to be different, drifting away from the core family business. He presented himself as the first generation business man venturing into unknown territories – and achieving them.
From 1984 when he started the journey of Aditya Group till his last day in office in 2014, Mr. Aditya lead from the front and built up the empire brick by brick under his very close vigilant eyes.
From trading in marbles to real estate, from medical to education, and finally entertainment, he ensured that Aditya Group marched on its way to success and reached out to the cross-sections of the society that was in the most need.
It is due to his philanthropic initiatives contributing towards the betterment of Society that won him many awards and recognition including the Mother Teresa International Award (Posthumous) which was collected by his eldest son Anirban Aditya, present Chairman of Aditya Group.
Mr. Aditya has left behind not only a massive business empire but a legacy that touches millions of hearts all over.
Chairman – Aditya Group
A pass out from University of Wales, Cardiff, UK, Anirban had to take over the charge of Aditya Group perhaps much earlier than one could have ever anticipated. Taking over the responsibility of running close to one thousand families at a crisis situation, and at the young age of 26 years was never going to be easy. However, Anirban turned this disadvantage (to many) into his strength and lead the Group from front and took it out of its immediate crisis.
Once the Group found steady and firm grounds there has been no looking back. What Anirban brought to the organisation was his international exposure and freshness of thoughts together with his zeal to turn aspirations to reality. Continuing with his father’s legacy within this short time frame he ensures that the Group expands exponentially. It is his vision that the Group has now gone international, gone global.
The philanthropic legacy also continues with Anirban agreeing to take care of sixty budding footballers under the age of 15 years of Atletico de Kolkata or ATK as its known now. The Group takes complete care of their boarding, lodging, education, health and welfare so that they can concentrate on their sports without having to worry about anything else. Such is when he spotted Iqra Rasool in a news channel and got her to Kolkata from Baramulla, a distant town of Kashmir close to India-Pakistan borders to help fulfill her dream of representing Indian Women’s Cricket team in future.
His concept and vision of EduSports – combining Education and Sports, has not only been accepted and praised but has caught everyone’s imagination. EduSports is all set to revolutionize both Education and Sports in India. It is for his exceptional management skills, administrative principles and smart expansion policies that the Group is now looking to consolidate its past and present and take the quantum leap forward.
Vice Chairman – Aditya Group
While Anirban brings in the stability, growth and vision to the organisation, Ankit bring in elegance, style and flamboyance, most essential to reach the right target audience in the most effective manner. His artistic bent of mind is helping the Group get itself finesse that’s required to take it to the niche segment.
Having excelled in the field of Sound Engineering and Film Production from London his zeal towards music and creativity gives the Group another new and very different dimension.
With his in-depth- knowledge in music and filming the Group ventured into not only film production but into various creative space.
It is for his endeavours that Aditya Group has produced and directed feature films both in the long and short formats, that have won critical praises in various national and international film festivals.
Today, he also lends his support to the Real Estate & Hospitality wing, specially in international projects bringing in class & elegance at affordable pricing. His present mission is to transform the Group’s real estate establishments like the schools, offices, restaurants, etc by overhauling them to a contemporary architecture and style.
Chairperson – Bhaskar Aditya Foundation & Director Hospitality
With such a rich legacy of philanthropy it was but essential that someone from the Group and family gave special attention to the philanthropic initiatives that the Group takes upon, ensuring they are on the right track and implemented properly. Roshni Aditya, wife of Anirban Aditya, a Management Graduate, thus personally takes care of all the philanthropic activities of the Group. She takes personal interest and utmost care that the beneficiaries are not deprived of their benefits and entitlements.
Roshni also heads the Hospitality segment of the Group. Ever since she has taken charge, the Group has grown very dynamically in that segment. Her personal endeavor of Oriental cuisine based chain of restaurants under the name and style of Noodle Oodle is one of the best in town with overwhelming feedbacks from guests and critics.
Today the hospitality team also takes care of perhaps the largest school canteen operations in town catering to close to nine thousand children, studying in different units of our Group of Schools, giving them special care bringing in her motherly touch to ensure the students’ health and hygiene. An initiative both conceived and driven by her.
She also actively takes part in the Parent Teachers Meeting of the schools ensuring any and every issue, if any, is addressed without any delay. As a member of the Board of Directors, Roshni also brings in very valuable insights and perspectives to the Group’s diversified business portfolio.
