Mr. Peter Cook, the British deputy high commissioner, presented Shri Mishra with the honour.

This inaugural award, “ET Influential Personalities of EAST,” was created to recognise and celebrate the pioneers of eastern businesses.

“I’m grateful and humbled to receive an award that speaks volumes, not just about me but about our journey as a company,” the young and dynamic director of OSL said upon receiving the honour. It’s proof positive of how expertly and gracefully we set sail into eastern India’s shipping, mining, logistics, and exports industries.

Shri Mishra continued, “This may be an award for me as a prominent figure, but there are always a number of people guiding my expertise and OSL towards eminence. Constantly pushing ourselves to the limit, setting new standards, and viewing obstacles as opportunities has been central to our pursuit of excellence. For me, nothing compares to the satisfaction of knowing that my efforts to improve the world have helped in some small way.

With the help of my team, I hope to keep making strides forward in the field. The members of the OSL team, who fit together like a puzzle, deserve this honour. It would be my honour and pleasure to carry forward this legacy and give back to the society as an organisation,” were the humble words of the young and enterprising OSL director Shri Charchit Mishra.
