Previous Rank : 11
With the global order in disarray, Suyash believes that the situation demands leaders who can bring forth their strong emotional quotient, and can take measures to navigate the choppy waters. At CRISIL, Suyash lists agility, rigour, and accountability towards stakeholders as qualities that have helped CRISIL stay resilient and relevant through sharp economic contractions and volatile markets. CRISIL’s ratings business consolidated its market leadership, and gained share of both mind and wallet. During the Covid-19 lockdown, her company launched the ‘10K Meals Project’ to serve meals to migrant workers, serving over 500,000 meals across 15 locations in Mumbai.
