An Engineer by education, I started my career with one of the industry leaders- Tata Consultancy Services where I not only worked for almost a decade, but also contributed to several IT projects, systems & processes playing several roles and learning trough an incredible journey. Having spent close to 2 decades in the supply chain domain with a diverse roll out of global trade management product suite I have been able to establish myself as one among the few with a unique combination of strong technical and trade functional knowledge. My ability to develop strategic long term partnerships and communicate effectively across levels has helped me perform in any given role through a proven track record for consulting large to mid-market size customers such as Walmart, Nike, Agilent and Keysight Technologies, Infineon, Verint, Doosan (Bobcat) and Crane worldwide.
I don’t simply create products as a product manager; I also design technological frameworks on which brilliant ideas are created.
