Basically joined a FMCG ' start-up' back in 2010 (well before this word became popular). Many different assignments, 2 countries of residence, innumerable learnings, tons of fun and interactions with so many colleagues from different cultures, many of them friends for life now.”

He further stated, “While key business and brand KPIs moved North East consistently over these years, what essentially remains for long after, are those fleeting moments where we had tremendous success, some hard falls, challenges that stretched us, opportunities that excited us and conversations and activities that were sheer joy and fun."
