I am a great believer of the proverb “Your attitude will determine your altitude” and take pride in my skills, credentials, and experience. I have a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a master’s Degree in Business Administration from India. Apart from this I have also obtained the Supply Chain Management Professional Designation (SCMP) from Canada, which is one of the highest achievements in the field worldwide.
I am a senior executive in Procurement and Supply Chain fraternity with 25+ years of experience from 5 countries of 3 diverse geographies. I am working outside of India since last 20 years including from the Middle East and North America regions. Although now I am a Canadian Citizen, my ultimate destination will be back to India in the near future.
Along with one of my ex-colleagues and an exceptionally good friend, I have recently promoted a private limited company in India with a manufacturing facility in Chincholi MIDC near Solapur, Maharashtra. Our goal is to grow this company multifold by offering low cost, state of the art manufacturing options from India to our global clients. Also, it will be our modest contribution to the collective efforts of the people of India to bring employment, development, and prosperity to the motherland.
Apart from this, my wife and I have an immense inclination for the mother nature, and we have a dream of developing a project in India encompassing sustainable farming and agrotourism. We believe farming is the future of the world. Right now, we are in the process of acquiring prerequisite land for this project in one of the naturally blessed and most beautiful pockets of Maharashtra. We will be incredibly happy to share more details of our project in due course.
My wife and I are both animal lovers and staunch opponents of cruelty against animals. We are planning to also start some sort of animal charity when we return to India in the coming years and will be EXTREMELY interested to connect with like minded people.
Finally, about my hobbies and interests:
I am a mentor, educator by nature who has a passion to help others succeed. I am immensely proud to mention that I have been mentoring new immigrants and other career aspirants in Canada and worldwide since past 7 years. I am glad to have made my little contributions to a few people all these years in their future careers and businesses. I have been guest speaker and guest faculty at several events, institutes, and other forums.
On the sidelines both me and my wife love activities like Hiking, Walking, Running. We also love Reading Marathi Literature and listening to Marathi and Hindi Music. We are World Travellers, Social Workers, interested in Charity and Animal Welfare.
