And the Long Story

I am currently leading the digital initiatives at Société Générale Global Solution Centre.

I started my career with a start-up, fresh out of college. There I saw an opportunity to combine my love for gaming with e-learning and went on to build a ‘Game-Based Solutions’ vertical. The learning games created by the team are used by global corporations like Pepsi India, Fidelity and WNS Global.

Later the startup got acquired by Zensar Technologies (an RPG group company) and I became a core member of the ‘e-learning Solutions’ team.

During this phase, I consulted some of the major brands like Wipro, Infosys, WNS, Tata Motors, Bajaj Auto, Dr. Reddy’s, Juniper Networks, Investec, Fidelity, Cisco Systems and National Grid.

My next call for adventure made me join a start-up called Global Talent Track (GTT) funded by majors like Helion Capital, Intel Capital, and Cisco Systems.  

I joined as the 5th member of the team and built the ‘Digital Content’ team from ground. The team was responsible for ‘everything online’ for the company.  GTT was featured as one of the most promising start-ups in India by Business Today and Fortune India.  

The limited marketing budgets of a start-up environment enabled me to discover the power of ‘Digital and Social Media’ marketing. I designed the digital strategy for the organization and managed 7 web properties that belonged to the organization.

During this phase, I also managed digital marketing campaigns for two of the key knowledge partners Google India and Intel India.   

In my last role with NEN, me and my team have built the Entrepreneur Academy from 0 to 50K subscribers in two years. The Academy  has  attracted more than a million views so far.

I also managed all Social Media platforms for NEN. I managed to grow NEN’s Facebook base from 20 K to 150 K, Twitter followers from 800 to 12 K+ and LinkedIn page from 0 to 2 K+.     

I am a blogger, traveller, aspiring comic writer, console gamer and amateur photographer.

A Personal note
