Shri. Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani is Chairman of the Board, Managing Director of Reliance Industries Limited. He is a Chemical Engineer from Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai (earlier University Department of Chemical Technology, University of Mumbai). He has pursued MBA from Stanford University, USA. Shri Mukesh D. Ambani has joined Reliance in 1981. He initiated Reliance’s backward integration journey from textiles into polyester fibres and further into petrochemicals, petroleum refining and going upstream into oil and gas exploration and production. He created several new world class manufacturing facilities involving diverse technologies that have raised Reliance’s petrochemicals manufacturing capacities from less than a million tonnes to about fourteen million tonnes per year. He is envisaging doubling these capacities to twenty seven million tonnes per annum within a short span. Working hands-on, Shri Mukesh D. Ambani led the creation of the world’s largest grassroots petroleum refinery at Jamnagar, India, with a current capacity of 660,000 barrels per day (33 million tonnes per year) integrated with petrochemicals, power generation, port and related infrastructure. Further, he steered the setting up of another 27 million tonnes refinery next to the existing one in Jamnagar. With an aggregate refining capacity of 1.24 million barrels of oil per day at any single location in the world has transformed “Jamnagar” as the ‘Refining Hub of the World’. In September 2008, when the first drop of crude oil flowed from the Krishna-Godavari basin, Shri Mukesh D. Ambani’s vision of energy security for India was being realized. Shri Mukesh D. Ambani is also setting up one of the most complex 4G broadband wireless services offering end to end solutions that address the entire value chain across various digital services in key domains of national interest such as Education, Healthcare, Security, Financial Services, Government-Citizen interfaces and Entertainment.
