He also sits on the Board of Dabur International, the holding company for Dabur’s international activities, which include FMCG manufacturing operations in Sri Lanka, the Middle East, Africa, and the US.

Dabur International recently acquired FMCG businesses in Turkey and the US and will look to grow globally over time.

Before joining the family business, Burman was founder partner, Elephant Capital, and prior to that, worked for Dresdner Kleinwort Capital, a global PE firm.
