Professional Experience:

I am a seasoned professional currently about to complete an International MBA at the esteemed Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Lucknow, specifically designed to cultivate my abilities for strategic leadership roles within my chosen domain. With over a decade of hands-on experience in Supply Chain and Procurement projects spanning diverse industries, my journey in the world of supply chain has been nothing short of dynamic and exhilarating.

My journey includes a pivotal role at BHEL, where I held leadership in managing the global supply chain of the solar business division. My focus was on streamlining procurement processes, cost reduction, and enhancing product quality. This endeavor tapped into my expertise in end-to-end project management and data analysis.

In this capacity, I successfully delivered a range of solar power solutions, spanning from ground-based installations to rooftop, canal-top, and floating solar EPC projects. This collective effort amounted to a remarkable 1000 MW (~600 Cr) for a diverse clientele, encompassing both domestic and international projects.

Strong experience backed with a tech background has provided a unique advantage, allowed me to fuse traditional practices with cutting-edge technology, always at the forefront of industry trends.
