Founders' Board

Kishore Biyani
|    Group CEO, Future Group

As the Founder and Group CEO of Future Group, Kishore leads a leadership team that delivers on Future Group’s vision of playing the role of a catalyst in India’s development through consumption of value-added products.

Having started his entrepreneurial journey in the 1980s in the fashion and garments sector, in 2001, Kishore led the creation of Big Bazaar, a uniquely Indian hypermarket network that connects thousands of small and large manufacturers to millions of customers. Big Bazaar today is counted among the most trusted brands in the services sector in India.

Since then, a number of retail chains have become part of Future Group. Some of these include, Central, Brand Factory, EasyDay, Nilgiris, Heritage, Hypercity, Aadhaar and Home Town. These chains connect thousands of small, medium and large manufacturers and entrepreneurs with over a million customers every day in almost every state and 255 cities and thousands of rural locations.

Through this period, Kishore has also led the creation of a number of consumer goods brands in the fashion, food and FMCG sector, that now capture a significant share of sales across the group’s retail chains. The group has invested extensively in manufacturing, sourcing of agricultural produce, logistics networks, food processing facilities and in a large number of supply partners and entrepreneurs.

Valuing and nurturing relationships is a key value championed by Kishore and reflects in the strong partnerships the group has developed with entrepreneurs, developers, investors, service providers and domestic and foreign organizations across various industries.

Kishore is a firm believer in the maxim of ‘Rewrite Rules, Retain Values.’ He was born in Mumbai in 1961. In 2007, he authored the book, ‘It Happened in India.’ Kishore and his wife, Sangita have two daughters, Ashni and Avni.
