Founder and managing director of Genesis Colors and Genesis Luxury, India’s only luxury retail conglomerate, Sanjay Kapoor oversees the operations of several Indian brands as well as holding exclusive distribution rights for international labels such as Jimmy Choo , Bottega Venata and Armani.  A co-founder of premium Indian sari brand Satya Paul, Kapoor established Genesis Colors in collaboration with Jyoti Narula and Puneet Nanda in 2001 to administer the brand's retail strategies, quickly adding to his portfolio with popular labels such as Bw!tch and Samsaara.

Kapoor founded Genesis Luxury in 2008 as the international arm of Genesis Colors, becoming the first to introduce franchise opportunities for luxury brands within the Indian market and in 2009 the group expanded into joint ventures with Burberry and luxury Italian men’s brand Canali. In 2011 LVMH private equity fund L Capital Asia purchased a 25.5 percent stake in Genesis Luxury, followed by an additional 14 percent investment in 2012.


A graduate of Shri Ram College of Commerce in New Delhi, Kapoor earned an MBA from the University of Rochester in New York before embarking on a finance career with Citibank in Singapore and India before turning to retail in the mid 1990’s.

Kapoor currently acts as an active member for several trade bodies including the Young Presidents Organisation (YPO) and The Indus Entrepeneurs (TIE).
