Despite odds, Tata showed some rare courage when he made acquisitions like Jaguar Land Rover and Corus in Europe, Assocham noted.

Chairman-designate Mistry will take charge of the new assignment on Saturday.

Last week, Assocham came up with a CEOs survey spread across several cities, including London and New York, which placed the Tatas as the best known Indian global brand.

Besides, the CEOs, in the survey, had expressed confidence that Mistry would be able to steer the $100-billion Group well even though the global business environment is uncertain at present.
