Mr. T S Kathayat

President  & CTO – Welspun Corp Limited

Achiever's Success Story

Courage, Commitment and Competence

The Coronavirus pandemic may be the biggest test facing world leaders for a generation. Mr. Kathayat’s leadership style in a crisis has resonated with people.  During the pandemic, he took the challenge, an additional responsibility as COO, of turning around a group company. He modelled his strategy for turn around and redefined the role of the Leader.

His messages have been clear and consistent and people have listened. He made detailed maps of the area to help with the rescue effort and co-ordinated closely with engineers on the surface.

Inspiring leadership stories comes not just from decision making and strategy, it comes from risk taking, going against the grain, often when you’re driven by a higher cause, a deep care for others or a complete conviction that you’re acting for the greater good.

Mr. kathayat always stresses on the 3 C’s of Leadership Courage, Commitment and Competence as key contributors to his success and Leadership Mantra.

He believes the key ingredients for entrepreneurial success are unwavering commitment to whatever one chooses to do, aspiration to achieve a leadership position in the vertical in which one does business, customer-centricity, and ambition.


You don’t have to grab the world, but whatever piece of the world you want to grab, have a dominant position there.
