I've been recruiting for over 9 years, with the focus on Talent Acquisition in the IT arena. I have also managed few teams of recruiters operating from different locations as a part of my managerial capabilities.

My recruiting philosophy is fairly simple and has 4 components

Customer Service

Professionalism

Relationship Development

Personal Growth

On the academic front, I did my engineering specializing in Electrical and Electronics from the University of Madras. I am an alumnus of the University of Wales where I did my MBA in HR.

In leisure I love to travel to various places and understand the nuances of the architecture and culture associated with them apart from me being a big foodie. Food and cooking is at the core of entertaining, and my passion grew and grew.

I love gardening, it takes my mind off things, but best of all there is always a sense of my environmental awareness.
