Professional Background

Currently Chief Operating Officer at Capgemini South East Asia. Capgemini is a 270,000 strong Technology Consulting company whose purpose is “Unleashing human energy through technology for an inclusive and sustainable future”.

I am part of the management Board of Capgemini SE Asia & Hong Kong, and head of regional solutions & delivery across all service lines. In my current responsibility, I lead a solutions and delivery team, with an objective to establish Capgemini SEA to be a Top 5 System integrator in the region, through continued explosive growth, increasing our client base thorough offering innovative and tailored solutions, being a trusted advisor to our clients, and achieving delivery excellence.

I am passionate about People Matters, and lead our Task force on Employee engagement, diversity, L&D, innovation, and improvements to our grad program. I have been instrumental in the pivoting of the business portfolio towards Digital. I have been particularly involved in setting up numerous practices across multiple technologies as part of the Digital Customer Experience (DCX) Service
Line, including UX/Design, Channels, CRM, Commerce, and RPA, as well as the Cloud & Analytics, and People & Change Service Lines.

While I have overall responsibility for the growth of these service lines and delivery of projects across SE Asia, I have a keen interest and spend a large part of my time in business development and delivery in 3 sectors which are undergoing a substantive change – transformation of Telcos into Digital Ecosystem enablers, the opportunities in the region from
deregulation in utilities, and the aspiration of traditional retailers to increase their share from eCommerce.

Personal Background

I grew up in India, but have worked and lived in numerous countries for over 20 years. I have lived in Singapore since 2010, with my wife who works as a Doctor at KK Hospital and my 12 year old son who loves Fortnite. My work involves substantial travel to meet clients across South East Asia, as well as to our headquarters in France and global clients in Europe and the US.

Before Covid, I probably traveled at least 3 weeks every month each year. I carry my paraglider with me, and use that opportunity when I can to explore the world from the sky. I am also a keen walker, and curious about cultures and like to wander around after work, eating local food and exploring random alleys.

Before working in the corporate sector, I spent 3 years teaching at a residential school in the mountains, a highlight of which was taking 5 kids on a 2-month, 4000km cycle ride across India.

Coaching Style

  • Authentic and Empathetic
  • Provide space to discover the best version of you
  • Share my experience

Personal Philosophy

  • To be the best version of me.
  • To understand that Humility is accepting myself for who I am, and follow it up to be who I can be.
  • To look for opportunities to create new positive behaviors, to preserve those that exist, eliminate behaviors that don’t serve, but also accept that I am human and imperfect.
  • To find the balance between being kind to myself and pushing boundaries
  • Aspire to the four agreements: – Be impeccable with my word, Don’t take anything personally, Don’t make assumptions, and Always do my best
