Vasant G. Rajadhyaksha: an HUL chairman who launched consumer icons
The HUL chairman who launched Rin and Bru, Rajadhyaksha went on to help lay the foundation for financial reforms with the Planning Commission
He was the second Indian chairman of Hindustan Unilever Ltd (HUL), between 1968 and 1973, when the company was called Hindustan Lever Ltd (HLL). But often the stature of Vasant G. Rajadhyaksha gets dwarfed by two other chairmen—P.L. Tandon, who preceded him, and T. Thomas, who succeeded him.
