However, in the list of the wealthiest non-promoter CEOs, HDFC Bank‘s Managing Director Aditya Puri stood second with a net worth of Rs 943 crore.

CFO of DMart, Ramakant Baheti, is third in the list of top professionals. Baheti’s net worth is Rs 666 crore.

Promoter CEOs have their money invested in the company and they are more inclined towards creating a long term shareholder value. They are the owners of the company and have the right to profits of the company.

The professional managers, however, are more concerned about short term profits because their commissions and incentives are dependent on it & arguably have better skill sets to successfully manage a company.
