I have spent my entire career, in India (some parts in singapore), devoted to evolve businesses and ensure that they fulfill their customer promise.
Most of my time has been in associating and building the music business eco-system in India.
In the last +18 years, i have had the privileged to work with best leaders in the business. I thank them for crafting my skills and time spent in training and educating me.
