Mr. Chirag Parekh

FOUNDER CHAIRMAN at CHAMPIONS POLO LEAGUE

Chirag Parekh, Bhavnagar-based industrialist, would make you believe that a horse pill is behind his success. “The speed of the growth in my business,” he lets on, “came when I started playing polo in 2010.” And he is not horsing around.

A quick look at the turnover of Acrysil, which claims to be the fourth-largest composite quartz and granite kitchen sinks’ company in the world, may be evidence of how Parekh has galloped as a businessman after he took to polo. While Acrysil posted revenue of Rs 55.21 crore in the year ended March 2011, the turnover jumped over three times to Rs 179.40 crore in the year-ended March 2016.
