June 2018, I have been bestowed with the title of "Cavaliere dell’Ordine della Stella d’Italia" ("Knight of the Order of the Star of Italy") by the President of the Italian Republic, Mr. President Sergio Mattarella and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Angelino Alfano.
This journey started from a small town in India where I was born and brought up, earned my early degrees and then moved to Hong Kong in 1993. I believe that all things happen for a reason and every turning point in my life has transformed me into a better and successful person.
Education is the key and I was fortunate to have the wisdom and desire to learn while working, and after devoting number of years I earned this level, which I felt completely entitled to.
Started my career with a humble beginning where I learned about almost all the areas of business. These years of learning made my work easy when I took higher roles as CFO, CEO of multinational companies, independent director in public company and to now, creating and managing my own businesses.
Throughout the course of my career, I have experienced challenging business situations. The key to managing through these situations is the ability to think strategically, but also develop realistic plans to solve the issue or capitalize on the opportunity. I believe I can use my skills to help the organizations think strategically about the long-term growth, but also balance the short-term needs. I am widely recognized as having a consistent, open and collaborative approach that is inclusive, constructive and respectful of the views of others. I believe and have demonstrated that effective decision-making is based on clear strategic thinking and a sound understanding of all relevant issues, views and evidence. I am always willing, eager in fact, to devote the time and energy in fulfilling my duties for all the roles I take.
Organization, planning, problem solving, and decision making are significant strengths that I offer. I have strong leadership traits and an intense drive to succeed, giving me confidence that I can make an immediate value-added contribution to the work I want to do. My contacts from different parts of the world also counts towards my assets.
Besides much involvement in business, I dedicate some of my time to the non-profit organizations focusing Hong Kong, India and Italy, promoting business, education and culture. An intense desire to make a difference, wherever I happen to be, has inspired my contributions. I believe that every one of us has the duty towards its Matrabhoomi (motherland), Janmabhoomi (land of birth) and Karmabhoomi (land we perform our duties). No matter where we are, our work should reflect the contribution not just towards the place we come from or belong to but also in the local society where we live and work.
