Associate Vice President (Sales and Strategic Initiatives-Internet of Things) at Tata Communications
As part of a leadership program for top performers in the company, I am currently incharge of Sales for 'Internet of Things' Business Unit at Tata Communications. Prior to this, I spent two years heading Talent Acquisition delivery in the company. What a sea change from previous expertise of more than a decade and a half spent doing core technology sales, leading digital transformation for sales, marketing and services effectiveness programs for global enterprises across industries.
Well traveled across the world with assignments in North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, South East Asia and Australia, I recognise and respect differences in cultures, value systems & ways of doing things. I am able to synthesise ideas, styles and approaches to be effective in a multi- cultural & multi-functional environment.
While currently I am helping close some fascinating and innovative IoT solution deals (before that I helped right talent find transformational careers at TCL), I am thoroughly enjoying blending my past experience with the new role. It’s surely turning out to be interesting and rewarding as we find newer and more effective ways of getting things done. Of course, some of the best learning I have had imparting leadership training on 7 Habits of highly effective people and Crucial Conversations is coming in handy.
