Gupta will lead strategic planning and philanthropic initiatives across all of the company’s divisions. Following her work expanding the company into high-rise residential development and into the mining industry, Gupta will continue to advance the company’s diversification strategies. 

Having held a range of positions within The Gupta Group including her past role as chief executive officer, she will be succeeding her father Steve Gupta, with whom she has worked closely for more than two decades. Gupta Sr. will hold the position of executive chairman and will hand off the strategic vision and planning role to his daughter in a significant organizational transition.

As a female business leader, philanthropist, and advocate for all women, I am proud to assume the position of chairwoman of The Gupta Group. I look forward to finding new growth opportunities for both our company and the Canadian economy, all while continuing to support important charitable initiatives globally,” says Reetu Gupta. I also hope to use this new platform to inspire other women and instill change in the business community. As a collective, we can support women in the workplace by approaching [every day] with the understanding that there are no glass ceilings.”
