Gautam Adani, the CEO of Adani Enterprises and one of the wealthiest entrepreneurs globally, has undergone a remarkable transformation in his financial fortune over the past decade. Despite hailing from a non-affluent background, this industrious tycoon has diligently worked his way up, starting from scratch, and emerged as a prominent figure in the business world. The history of the Adani Group traces its roots back to 1988, and over the years, it has earned a reputation as one of the most prosperous conglomerates on a global scale. Currently, Gautam Adani, the second-wealthiest individual in the country, helms this colossal $32 billion corporation, which boasts diverse holdings encompassing ports, airports, electricity generation and transmission, green energy, and more. A pivotal force propelling his monumental success is his wife, Priti Adani, who serves as the chairperson of the Adani Foundation.

Meet Priti Adani

Priti Gautam Adani, a multifaceted personality with roles as a businesswoman, dentist, philanthropist, and the leader of the Adani Foundation, was born in India on August 29, 1965. According to reports, she ranks among India’s wealthiest women, with a reported net worth exceeding $1 billion.

Priti Adani commenced her professional journey as a dentist during her early years. In 1996, she assumed the role of chairperson of the Adani Foundation.

In the aftermath of the Bhuj Earthquake in 2001, she established the Adani DAV School in Mundra, which subsequently adopted the name Adani Public School. Additionally, alongside her husband, she founded the Adani Vidya Mandir in June 2009, with campuses located in Ahmedabad and Bhadreshwar, a town near Mundra. The Adani Vidya Mandir offers free post-secondary education to disadvantaged youth. Under her leadership, the Adani Group’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) expenditure increased from Rs 95 crore to Rs 128 crore within a year.

Priti Adani is married to Gautam Adani, and the couple has two sons who actively contribute to the operations of the Adani Group.

This expansive 3.4-acre property was acquired by the Adani Group after successfully winning the bid. Additionally, Gautam Adani owns a fleet of aircraft, including a Bombardier, a Beechcraft, and a Hawker, capable of accommodating 8, 37, and 50 passengers, respectively, as reported by TOI.
