Minor International Will Get New Group CEO as Founder Bill Heinecke Plans Succession
Dillip Rajakarier’s biggest achievement is lasting a dozen years with the hugely-driven Bill Heinecke who was once known for short-lived CEOs. Rajakarier earns his stripes well, but if you think Heinecke is retiring — forget it.
Dillip Rajakarier at the start of the new year will replace Bill Heinecke as group chief executive officer of Minor International while maintaining his role as CEO of Minor Hotels.
The American entrepreneur, 70, also retains his indefatigable energy and passion, telling Skift he is stepping up, not down, when asked about the Rajakarier's promotion.
