I have a total experience of 23 years including some of the renowned Indian and Multi National  companies like A V Birla Group, J K Corporations, Williamson Magor, Global Trust Bank,  SHV Energy, Suchirindia and KSK Energy Ventures Ltd. In my last Corporate assignment, I was heading the HR function of the Operations Vertical of KSK Energy Ventures Ltd  and  was accountable for 6 operational plants spread across 5 states.

I have played the role of a Change Agent and am very well equipped with the OD intervention measures. I have excellent command over designing and institutionalization of tailor-made Performance Management System for any organization. I do have very good expertise in designing the competency frame work for the organization. The extensive use of measurement tools and techniques in carrying out industrial research (during my Ph D program) equips me with an added competency to develop and administer tailor-made test batteries used for HR processes and sub-processes. I am also a certified Assessor for designing and administration of Development Centre for competency assessment and development. I have proven competence in conducting activity based (classroom as well as out-bound) behavioural training across the levels and functions (conducted more than 200 sessions).

I have been in the Strategic and Leadership role for more than 12 years heading the function with the end to end accountability for the entire gamut of Human Resources activities. I am exposed to work with the CXO team as a member of Country Management Team.
