Accordingly, the Board unanimously decided to appoint R.S. Goenka as Non-Executive Chairman while re-designating R.S. Agarwal as Chairman Emeritus effective 1st April, 2022.

Both the Founders will not accept any emoluments from the Company for taking up their new positions. The decision comes in the wake of Board restructuring that was part of the succession planning of the FMCG business of the Group.

The Emami Ltd Board also acceded to Sushil K. Goenka's desire to step down from his current position as the Managing Director of Emami Ltd as part of the transition process and has re-appointed him as a Whole-Time Director of the Company effective 1st April, 2022.

Mohan Goenka and Harsha V. Agarwal, Whole-Time Directors of Emami Ltd., have been spearheading multiple functions and growing the business successfully thereby gaining immense exposure to steer the organisation forward. The Board therefore found them to be deserving candidates and re-designated Mohan Goenka and Harsha V. Agarwal and Whole-Time Directors as Vice Chairman-cum-Whole Time Director and Vice Chairman-cum-Managing Director respectively, effective April 1, 2022 to steer the organisation forward, subject to shareholders' approval.
