Give a snapshot of your career progression over the years at Markelytics?
It’s been a wonderful time at Markelytics for the last 13+ years and I would like to look back at the initial days when I started here as a ‘Data Analyst’ and the growth it provided. My career progression here has been built on a strong foundation of research processes and this gradual transformation has made me a better research professional and a better human being. It makes me feel good to have walked along with the company for these many years and to have witnessed its phenomenal growth. It’s great to be a part of this culture!

If I described my team in one word, it would be ‘Young Blood’, which the Cambridge dictionary itself defines as people who have a lot of energy and ideas, and that’s my team.

Describe yourself in three words.
I’m a people’s person!
What is your management style?
I don’t follow one style of management. It depends on the need and the situation at that moment. But it is always in the best interest of the client and my team. In a nutshell, the delight of clients and the happiness of my team members are at the core of every decision I make. Sometimes, it is a challenge, but I’m privileged to lead a team of mature professionals who hold high corporate ethics.
