The Dodsal Group was founded in Mumbai in 1948 by the Nandlal Kilachand family as a trading company in partnership with a British trading company.

Today, it has transformed from a family trading enterprise into a multibillion dollar organisation based in Dubai. The firm’s services span a wide range of sectors including energy, industry and infrastructure. It has successfully completed projects in over 22 countries across Middle East, Europe, Africa, the Indian Subcontinent and South-East Asia.

At the company’s helm is its chairman and president, Rajen Kilachand. Under Kilachand’s leadership the firm continues to grow with plans to take “Dodsal from a $200m multi-retail interest company to a world-class multi-billion dollar organisation,” as he says on his website.

Outside work, Kilachand is a trusteee and on the board of management at the Bhatia General Hospital in Mumbai. He also sits on the board of directors of Pathfinder International, and is a trustee of a Gujarati temple.
