An MBA from IIM Calcutta majoring in finance/strategy and a Gold Medallist in my undergrad Mechanical Engineering course, I works as a Strategy Consultant. The role spans across the lifecycle of a consultancy assignment i.e. pre-sales to project completion. I provide management consultation services with a focus on business turn around plans, strategic planning, and organisational design. Previous to this role, I worked for TVS Motors in Marketing & Sales as a Territory Manager. In this role, I managed dealer and institutional network including sales, service, spares and financial health advisory and provided industry-focused business solutions, new business acquisition, best practices, and client relationship management. Prior to this, I worked as Design Executive . Key achievements in this role included modelling of the first ever Digital Speedometer used in a TVS product (Apache RTR 160) and designing of styling parts of the first TVS two wheeler launched in Indonesia.

On a personal side, I indulge into clay modelling(of bikes on 1:1 scale) as and when time permits and also am a voracious reader primarily of non fiction books.
