Anu Aga

Anu Aga was born in Bombay, India on 3rd August 1942. She began her industry career in Thermax in 1985 and later was in charge of the Company's human resources function from 1991 to 1996. After her husband Rohinton Aga passed away, she took over as executive Chairperson of the Thermax Group in February 1996, and two years later became non-executive Chairperson.

As chairperson, Anu had facilitated four major turnaround initiatives at Thermax. Reconstitution of the board, shedding of non-core activities, rightsizing of operations and increased focus on the customer. She is also instrumental in driving a high performance culture at Thermax, especially at the senior levels. In October 2004, Anu decided to retire as the chairperson.

Anu has been very active in various national and local associations like Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) and had served as the Chairperson of CII's Western Region. She has written extensively and given talks on the subjects of women empowerment, corporate governance, value-based management and on corporate social responsibility.

She has done her BA in Economics and holds a post graduate degree in medical and psychiatric social work from Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS). She was selected for the Fullbright Scholarship for social workers to study for four months in the U.S.

Anu is keenly involved in the causes of communal harmony and human rights, especially women and children.

She also supports various organizations that promote education, in particular of underprivileged children from slums. With the help of a Mumbai based NGO called Akanksha, 16 centres have been opened in Pune for the slum children. Currently she is involved with several NGOs.
