Turnaround CEO. Angel Investor. Entrepreneur. Coach. Mentor. A man with many avatars, Kannan Gopalakrishnan is again in the midst of reinventing himself. Kannan, a talented marketer who made Adidas the numero uno brand in the challenging South-Asian market, and roped in cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar as its brand ambassador – is now seeking balance: One-third of his time doing commercial mentoring; one-third giving back to the community and one-third spending time with family, travelling and golf.
