Bio

Award winning consultant with a passion for technology and astute commercial skills. I have worked with customers of all sizes and my focus has and will always remain on your needs. I have lived, studied and worked across Europe and emerging Asia and have a successful track record of delivering results both, on individual assignments and while leading mixed teams.

Having a broad understanding of the business is at the core of my skill set but my main strength is the ability to deliver tangible results. Having been exposed to a wide range of business models, I like to lead from the front with a deep understanding of culture, organisational structures and people management.

I have an MBA from one of the world's top 10 business schools and an Engineering degree in Computer Sc. / Information Technology from India, both earned as top 5% in class, apart from 6 technology and 2 finance certifications.
