The private equity venture ScrumStart, SRKay's Globalization and technology consulting venture, of the multibillion dollar SRK Group, on Saturday, announced the appointment of Santosh Panicker as the CEO.

Panicker additionally will be responsible for the HR function of SRKay Group globally and will work with the SRKay board directly for both the roles.

He joins SRKay Consulting Group's venture ScrumStart from Sears India, where he was the Chief People Officer and was instrumental in creating the company from ground zero.

"Santosh brings in his extensive network, his in-depth knowledge of global technology captive functioning and hands- on experience in starting and managing Greenfield projects. He is highly respected and rewarded business leader in the field of HR and an expert in creating lasting partnerships," said Alok Kumar, Managing Partner, SRKay Consulting Group.

SRKay Consulting Group had tasted success in its first year with its venture ScrumStart, which reported break-even within the first year of operation and bagged several customers and millions of dollars' worth of business from global customers in its second year of operations.

Since its inception in September 2016 by Alok Kumar, a leading name in the technology industry, who started SRKay after his tenure as the Managing Director of Sears India, the group is leaving no stone unturned to build the best leadership team.

Shortly after the group's inception, Alok appointed Kesavan Srinivasan, an industry veteran in technology R&D with patents to his credit, as the CTO of the company and after a few months, Shriram Viswanathan joined the company as the Chief Business Officer.

Recently, ScrumStart was nominated for the 'Innovator of the Year' Award by New Zealand leading retailer, The Warehouse Group. About ScrumStart ScrumStart is focused on helping overseas clients set up their IT/ITeS centres in India.

Backed by a billion-dollar business house, ScrumStart is run by experts who have been involved in setting up and running the most successful captives in India.

The innovative Virtual Captive solution offered by ScrumStart combines the advantages of both models of outsourcing: traditional outsourcing and company-owned captives.

The end-to-end solution proves to be highly effective, as it reduces the need for upfront capital expenditures, cuts down the learning curve in implementing the best practices and ensures quick ROI for the client.
