Tell us about your success mantra.
I always believe in challenging myself. Before joining Trivitron, I was working with Group 4 Securitas followed by short stint in few healthcare companies. I joined Trivitron mainly because it was a startup company then, and the role I was offered gave me an opportunity to handle multiple roles and responsibilities, which helped me to come out of my comfort zone.

I have had the privilege of being a part of some great success stories and have learnt from my mistakes. Being in the healthcare sector, I have understood quite early in my career
that prompt decision making and being close to customer is the key for success for an individual and for the organization as well.

Every challenge I faced helped me to overcome my own limitations as I consider them an opportunity to learn, experiment and improve my own skills

What challenges did you face during your initial journey at Trivitron?
Every challenge I faced helped me to overcome my own limitations as I consider them an opportunity to learn, experiment and improve my own skills. Trivitron came into picture when the Indian healthcare industry was dominated by major MNCs. Hence bringing the right skill set on board was one of the major challenges. Being new and less known made our search more difficult as many considered working for us, risky. It took lot of my time, efforts and energy to build a brand which attracted talent and today, I am happy to see the team that we have. We have some of the best talents available in-house, and we are at par with all MNCs that exist today.

Could you throw some light on the strategies that help Trivitron move in the right direction?
I joined Trivitron when it was a startup. Today, I wear several hats, which have given me direct access to people, market and products. Trivitron is a growing company and the successful global expansion of our company depends on getting right people, expanding our foot prints in right geographies and providing right products in the markets. I believe my experience is helping the team to channelize their efforts in right direction.
