Can you walk us through your pro-fessional journey?
In 2006, I completed my engineering degree in the mechanical stream and embarked on my professional journey through a campus placement. I was fortunate to be recruited by a leading material handling manu-facturing company in Pune, where I worked for more than 10 years. During this time, I gained valuable hands-on experience in product sales, honed my marketing abilities, fostered an innovative mindset, and sharpened my problem solving skills. Progressing from a technical sales engineer to managerial roles like general manager and product line manager, I had the opportunity to expand the company's international market presence. Later I joined a Spanish global leader and managed complex engineering projects across sectors. With expertise and leadership skills, I successfully contributed to the organization. I oversaw operations and expanded into different cities in India. During my tenure, I was approached by my current organization, DALMEC, an Italian multinational specializing in
PNEUMATIC MATERIAL HANDLING solutions. Having operations in over 50 countries, DALMEC appointed me as the country manager for India. In this role, I oversee multiple departments, including sales, technical engineering, after sales services, HR, accounts, and finance. Leveraging my technical expertise and management skills, I drive business growth, cultivate strong customer relationships, and ensure efficient project execution. I have been fulfilling these responsibilities for more than five years, continuing to contribute to DALMEC's success.
