When Raj Gupta landed at JFK Airport in January 1968, he had $8 in his pocket. Thirty-one years later, he was named chairman and CEO of a Fortune 500 specialty chemicals company and now serves on the board of other Fortune 500 companies. Gupta sits down with us to discuss his autobiography, Eight Dollars and a Dream: My American Journey, and his experience in corporate governance through several periods of dramatic change.
