Technology & People Leader
- Bengaluru, India
A qualified technology manager and seasoned professional, with 20 years of rich and insightful international experience, most of it being in the Investment Banking/ Capital Markets domain. I have been involved in Management/Leadership of Global IT Delivery/Program Management/Project Management, Software Development as well as Organization and Team Development.
I am looking for senior technology leadership positions, which leverage my delivery, people, project management, technology and governance skills, using my experience of two decades in technology and investment banking. My expertise lies at the intersection of People/ Relationships, Technology and Delivery Management. I could be a CIO/CTO/Director, responsible for running a diversified, global organization, and/or a portfolio of mission critical, strategic programs.
As a Leadership Coach, I help my clients become a better version of themselves. For instance, I have coached a CEO to be able to speak at an International event. I have helped another global organization's leader to help establish a framework for managing vendor relationships, in an environment where it was being done due to the heroics of a single person- his predecessor. I have also helped an abrasive manager get over his old habits and become a better people person.
As a Transformation Consultant, I help organizations get to the next level, or to better handle changes. For example, I work with a global software services firm to improve their Client Management processes, as they expand into new verticals and geographies. I am also working with an early phase startup to help define their product road map and technology architecture for a SAAS offering.
I globally head the Client Management team in India, for the International Wealth Management business; and also lead the growing IWM team in Bangalore. I have global ownership of our systems and functional, business facing responsibilities for the APAC and EMEA regions. I was reporting into a Senior Executive Director, with dotted line into a Managing Director and leading a diversified, global team of employees and consultants.
Joined this global investment leader as a Project Leader in November 2004 and was promoted to Associate Director about two years later. I had global ownership of the Portfolio Accounting platform and Broker Straight Through Processing. I also managed the Usability Engineering team, as well as the Project Management Office (PMO).
