He is also responsible for TCS’ North India Operations.
As part of his work, he extensively travels to more than a dozen countries across the globe including US, UK, Australia, Japan, Germany, France, Spain and Switzerland. His extensive travel exposes him to various cultures and provides rich and varied experiences, ranging from participating in a football clinic in FC Barcelona to building a friendship with a retired Lebanese Airline pilot who now runs a taxi company in Paris.
