Chief Operating Officer, International Development Enterprises (India)
I am among a few individuals who have worked across almost all institutional arrangements for public service delivery. I have worked at senior management positions with Government of India, a UN agency, and some of the world’s most prominent voluntary organizations. I have also taught at a university.
I thus have rich work experience in public administration, development, academic, and corporate sectors. I have managed substantial projects, large number of people and significant amounts of financial resources, and have delivered financial, communication, ICT, education, and development services and products in vast geographical areas.
I did my doctoral research at the University of Manchester, UK, that involved exploring ways and means to expand and deepen financial markets in India, and link them up with social protection, in order to reduce poverty. I have published research articles in various peer-reviewed international journals and have contributed chapters to edited books.
