Aditya Birla names Ashish Dikshit as fashion business head
Aditya Birla Group has elevated Ashish Dikshit to head of fashion business, covering Madura Fashion and Lifestyle, Pantaloons and the international brands the group operates in India.
Dikshit, an IIT Chennai and IIM Bangalore alumnus, was previously the chief executive of Madura. He will also be overseeing the fast fashion business of Forever 21, the country rights of which the group acquired from DLF recently.

Aditya Birla Fashion has more than 7,000 points of sale across over 375 cities and towns, which include more than 2,000 exclusive brand outlets.
