- JIMMY MISTRY, CHAIRMAN & MANAGING DIRECTOR
Pearl Jimmy Mistry, is the Director at Della Group. She has recently finished her Master's in Management from the renowned London Business School. Three years ago, while she pursued her undergraduate studies, she started involving herself with the image management aspect of the parent group as the General Manager Sales & Marketing with focused attention towards Branding, Digital Marketing and Online Sales for Della Adventure Park & Resorts.

She will also look into the large format retail business, forging pan-India franchising/distribution networks while conducting international market research for exports in the near future.
The company Della Group grew from a retailer of imported furniture in 1995 to a giant enterprise comprising of 6 business verticals: Resorts, Adventure Park, Villas, D.A.T.A. (Della Adventure Training Academy) India's first Counter Terrorism Training Academy for civilians and it's latest baby "Della by Jimmy Mistry".
Pearl was inspired by her father, Designer Jimmy Mistry, at a very early age and thus developed a fondness for design. She believes shadowing him and being a helping hand, irrespective of the department is her un-official yet prerogative role at Della Group.
Apart from her professional pursuits, she enjoys art and sculpting which has won her laurels such as the "Young Achiever Award" received from the British Parliament at the House of Commons by Sri Virendra Sharma, Member of Parliament and Dr. D. Sukul, World Book of Records, UK. Her sculpture is now on display at the British Parliament. The Indo-British Cultural Forum recognised this as a contribution to the Arts & Women Empowerment Movement.
Featured in India Today Woman as one of the "11 Enterprising Women with a taste for excellence showing the true marque of Luxury' and Elle Decor has featured Pearl as the 'Generation Now' to look out for in the Design Industry.
I have been handling the entire HR Operations for Della Group of companies for the past 6 yrs
“You have the best strategy and the best building in the world, but if you don't have the hearts and minds of the people who work with you, none of it comes to life" My Philosophy is to understand the Business verticals and attract raw talents for our Luxury Villas and a five start resort attached with an adventure park which was unheard in the industry with a new theory and concept. Della was into Business verticals of Interiors and Architecture. During my period we expanded the business verticals into – Della Villas, Della Resorts and Della Adventure. The sudden expansion of Business in Resorts and Adventure was a huge task with the brand name unknown by professionals working in these specialized fields.
Creating Della brand awareness with the working professionals and talent acquisition by the HR Team was a achievement. With the experience gained I see myself heading HR in all new business ventures.
In Della, HR is admired and respected amongst all the core business functions and we understand that people are Product, Profit and Potential. HR in Della plays a great role into developing true business partnership and a value adding role.
The key to leadership is Influence, not Authority. In Della, Strategic decisions made by the organization have a significant impact on staff's training and development.We focus on developing confidence and build understanding of framework for developing employee involvement into Operations.We understand that our employees play multi-faceted roles and so we strongly encourage them to explore their whole selves.
3. CULTURE / ENVIRONMENT
We truly believe that while our amazing past distinguishes us, we are only as good as what we do next. We support our mission and goal by adhering to a set core values that characterizes our culture. Della is committed to creating and sustaining a work environment and companies culture, where all employees of our diverse workforce from across the country can perform at their very best.
What we have achieved towards manpower acquisition, retention and satisfaction could not have been possible without the joint efforts of the entire HR Team in helping to head towards accomplishing a credential business model in Lonavala. If we win this battle then – and only then – are we able to take our brand to the outside world and to the next level.
