ICICI’s Chanda Kochhar gets ‘Woodrow Wilson Award’, becomes first Indian woman to receive it. Here’s how she is nailing it in the finance world

ICICI MD&CEO Chanda Kochhar received the Woodrow Wilson Award for Global Corporate Citizenship from the Woodrow Wilson Centre in Washington DC.

She is the first Indian woman to receive the award, which has been received by former Indian President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam and Infosys founder Narayana Murthy.

The award was conferred for demonstrating a commitment to the common good - beyond the bottom line.

This is not the first time when Kochhar has received a prestigious award. Time and again, her efforts have been recognised for her role in shaping the retail banking sector in India as well as her contributions to various forums in India and globally.

Kochhar received an honorary Doctor of Laws from Carleton University, Canada in 2014. She was conferred with the Padma Bhushan in 2011.

Kochhar, who began her career with erstwhile ICICI Limited in 1984, was elevated as Managing Director & CEO of ICICI Bank in 2009. She was instrumental in establishing ICICI Bank during the 1990s, and subsequently headed the infrastructure finance and corporate banking business in ICICI Limited.

During 2006-2007, she led the bank’s corporate and international banking businesses. She also chairs the boards of the ICICI Bank’s principal subsidiaries, which include India’s leading private sector life and general insurance companies.
