Given your more than quarter-century of experience, could you walk us through your path to success and the credo you've followed throughout your career?
Success is a long-term journey, one that's built on commitment, hard work, and resilience. Over the past 26 years, my journey has been guided by clear goals, treating failures as lessons for growth, and maintaining a resilient mindset.

What's my recipe for success? It's all about continual learning, discipline, and persistence. On top of that, fostering relationships and
seeking guidance from mentors and peers have been essential.

My personal motto is quite straight forward: "Dream, Believe, Achieve." Success is individual and it's important to enjoy the journey, not just the destination. It's key to define success on your own terms, based on your personal values, passions, and goals.

What unique experiences were offered by The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania? How have these enhanced your learning beyond the academic scope?
My time at Wharton was an academic adventure layered with enriching experiences that sharpened my leadership abilities and catalyzed hands-on learning. We ventured beyond the conventional classroom, diving headfirst into a diverse array of activities from rowing to film making, to social enterprise projects, creating a treasure trove of unforgettable memories. Personalized coaching was a cornerstone in helping me refine my leadership style, amplify my strengths and address areas for improvement.

The program curated a multifaceted cohort from 19 different countries, spinning a vibrant tapestry of cultural diversity that fostered mutual learning. This academic journey not only bolstered my knowledge but also built a robust network of trusted advisors that I lean on for support. I'm immensely grateful for the wisdom filled faculty, my diverse cohort, and the extra ordinary experiences that have continually shaped my personal and professional growth.

This pivot towards a product centric approach marks an exhilarating new phase for Kanerika, bolstering its standing in the industry.

What informs your leadership approach and what strategies do you deploy?
My leadership ethos underwent significant refinement during my time at Wharton. I learned that leadership isn't a one-size-fits-all approach; it requires flexibility to adapt to different individuals and circumstances. As an adaptive leader, my priority is to establish a clear vision and communicate it effectively to my team.

I believe in 'leading by example'. By embodying the principles of integrity, professionalism, and a robust work ethic, I aim to inspire my team to do the same. Through the 'empower-and-delegate' model, I encourage team members to take ownership of their work, fostering a sense of responsibility and commitment.

Furthermore, I place great emphasis on continual learning and personal development within our team. In doing so, I hope to foster an environment where each team member can unlock their full potential.

What future destination are you steering Kanerika towards?
Our central ambition is to broaden Kanerika's reach into new territories, solidifying our reputation as an all-encompassing data ecosystem. This mission calls for the enhancement of our capabilities in analytics, integration, and automation via our robust platform.
