The Company’s Chairman, Managing Director and founder of the Shikhar Group has over 25 years of varied business experience.
During the early years of his career, he dealt in supply of soda ash to chemical bottling plants such as Pepsi and had distributorship for Jayshree Tea in Kanpur.
On the 17th of October, 1994, his idea of owning a chewing tobacco business became a reality, despite a dearth of available financial resources. He established the company ‘Trimurti Fragrances Pvt. Ltd.’, popularly known as the Shikhar Group at present. Given the minimal equipment available at the outset, Shikhar concentrated on the production and sale of ‘Shikhar Gutkha’ chewing tobacco. Only by dint of perseverance, diligence and striving for top product quality has the small company been able to assert itself successfully vis-à-vis the powerful competition of the established chewing tobacco manufacturers in India.
Under his leadership, Shikhar Group has emerged as a leading Indian independent manufacturer in the chewing tobacco segment.
Inspite of his being actively involved in these projects, Mr. Pradeep Agarwal finds sufficient time to participate in various civic & welfare activities. He is the Founder & Trustee of Lakshmi Shiksha Society, founded in 1986, who has started an institution called Glory Public School, which offers education up to secondary level (10th standard) and is affiliated to CBSE.
Since 2009, Mr. Sarvesh Agarwal has been concentrating on the expansion of international sales network in addition to
the existing domestic tobacco market. He bears the responsibility for all exports besides the Company’s overall marketing management.
Mr. Sarvesh Agarwal is a graduate of University of Bradford and holds a master’s degree in business administration from
Infinity Business School, Gurgaon.
