Roots Corporation Limited (RCL) which operates ‘Ginger’ chain of hotels, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Indian Hotels Company Limited, announced the appointment of Rahul Pandit as Chief Executive Officer, an industry veteran with over two decades of experience in the hospitality and travel industry.

“We are delighted to welcome Rahul back to the Taj family. He will be a valuable addition to the Indian Hotels Company Limited and contribute significantly by realizing the future strategic vision for Ginger hotels.” said Rakesh Sarna, Managing Director & CEO, Indian Hotels Company Limited.

Rahul first started his career with Taj, where he always stood out as a high potential due to the accolades he received from his colleagues for his keenness to improve practices and processes.

After spending six years at Indian Hotels Company Limited, Rahul’s experience as an entrepreneur during his time outside the Taj, has made him one of the country’s leading experts on the budget sector of hospitality. He is one of the founding members of Lemon Tree Hotels Ltd where he played a multi-faceted role in developing diverse aspects of new business including Operations, Human Resources, Technology and Sales. He spearheaded the company to develop and grow into three distinct Lemon Tree brands with 27 hotels across 16 cities in India. His knowledge of this sector will prove invaluable to Roots Corporation, where he will be taking the helm to boost the company’s performance and growth.

Rahul holds a Diploma in Hotel Management from IHM, Pusa, New Delhi and has undergone training sessions at Cornell, New York, NTU, Singapore, IIM, Ahmedabad and ISB, Hyderabad. He serves on the National Tourism Committee at CII.
