Mr. Gopalakrishna Machani

Mr. Gopalakrishna Machani, is a 3rd Generation leader of the 90-year-old MGB Group. This young entrepreneur first entered into the automobile business on completion of his B.Tech degree. His thirst for knowledge in the field of business has led him to complete many business training programs since 2006. His business acumen and sharp analytical skills saw him quickly rise up to a leadership position within the MGB group.

His belief that true growth happens only by stepping out of one’s comfort zone caused him to pursue avenues that were foreign to him. Accordingly, he stepped out of the shadows of the automobile industry and plunged himself into the unknown waters of construction and retail. By doing so, he personally took up the challenge of diversifying the business profile of the MGB group too. In 2013, he launched a project to build a mall in Andhra Pradesh. His project, the MGB Felicity Mall, was completed in 2016. It is one of the largest malls in Andhra Pradesh and is responsible for introducing many national and international brands in Nellore, Andhra Pradesh and the surrounding areas. It opened with great fanfare and maintains an impressive occupancy rate of 98% to date.

Under his able leadership, the MGB group’s real estate and retail division has gone from strength to strength.

Recently, he was invited to talk about the future of food services and retail spaces at the Indian Food Forum and India Fashion Forum in 2019. Additionally, he has spoken and inspired graduates at many colleges and esteemed institutions.

He is a Committee member of SCAI ( shopping centres association of India ) for South India , a ilife time member of the Red Cross and has thrown himself into projects that help the underprivileged and support his local community. He is a disciple of the Heartfulness Institute where he serves as one of Directors also, which is a non-profit organisation created for the purpose of bringing spiritual enlightenment. The Heartfulness Institute is spread over 140 countries around the world with around 2 million seekers.

This eminent businessman is not one to sit lightly on his laurels. In the hopes of bringing his education even more up to date and ushering the MGB group into the future, he recently secured admission at Harvard Business School and also at Indian School of Business( Hyderabad) where he is pursuing Doctor of Business Administration, because of his vision to contribute for rural India he has developed his Doctorate on ‘BUSINESS IN RURAL INDIA’. He has a personal philosophy of integrity, passionate excellence, and constant innovation. These along with his out-of-the-box thinking, his attention to detail, and his ability to inspire others hold him and the MGB group in good stead.
