Chapter 12 - Chairman at 44 Riding the Tiger
| 0.11 Rewards Points
For most of us who start their career in the public sector, a dream is nurtured, that of becoming Chairman & Managing Director of a public sector company, at some stage. This happened to me when I noticed an advertisement for the post of Chairman & Managing Director in National Buildings Construction Corporation Ltd. (NBCC) and applied for the job. I was a very casual applicant since I believed that such positions were not advertised but persons were selected through internal PSU’s system of selection. However, this post was advertised, I was informed that two successive efforts earlier had not given any positive result. While I met with the basic requirements on technical front and qualification, I then just 44 years of age, one year less than the age requirement advertised of 45 years. However, I did not give much thought after I sent in the application.
