Geetha Muralidhar, chairman-cum-managing director of ECGC retires on 31 October. Muralidhar, who steered India’s export credit agency through its prestigious diamond jubilee anniversary two years ago has been a redoubtable force in Indian trade, and a pioneering woman in a senior role in the trade community. For 37 years Muralidhar has helped the organisation develop a large number of branch offices in the country, helping Indian exporters and banks throughout the India. In her own words, ECGC is one of the rare ECAs which function commercially while ensuring its mandate of export promotion by being an all-weather partner to exporters and bankers in India. That, in no small measure, has been thanks to her leadership.
