2019 CW Power 100: Indian giant L&T's SN Subrahmanyan at #13
EXCLUSIVE: CEO and MD of Indian contracting giant appears in the top 20 of 2019 Construction Week Power 100 ranking
Having joined the Indian construction and engineering heavyweight in 1984, SN Subrahmanyan was promoted to his current role of chief executive officer and managing director of Larsen & Toubro (L&T) in 2017 by the company’s board of directors.
With a career spanning more than 35 years, Subrahmanyan has led the Bombay Stock Exchange-listed company to major contract wins in the Middle East, where the firm has been involved in several projects in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Kuwait.
In May, a consortium of L&T and the Finnish firm Outotec was awarded a $606m (SAR2.7bn) contract for a two-site Mansorah and Massarah gold mine factory by Gold and Base Metals Company, a subsidiary of Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Ma’aden).
Earlier this year, under Subrahmanyan’s leadership, the firm launched a five-year strategic initiative, L&T-Nxt, which will focus on new, disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, augmented and virtual reality, geo-spatial enterprises, and cyber security.
