Expert in: Product Management, Strategic Planning, Process Simulation
I am a Senior Product Management Consultant managing KBC’s Petro-SIM Reactor Suite portfolio and its upcoming digital offerings. I provide strategic direction and manage new product development to achieve financial targets and drive strategic initiatives for the business. I have around 13 years of downstream refinery and petrochemical experience which includes consulting, process design, technical services and plant operations.
I enjoy the product management role because of my passion for technology and ability to understand how it creates value. I’m a certified Product Manager from Pragmatic Institute. I strongly believe in completing decisions with data. I am a strong advocate of creating delightful customer experiences by developing empathy towards them to understand their problems and creating products to solve them.
After my graduation from Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore, India as a Chemical Engineer, I joined Indian Oil Corporation and gained experience in refinery operations. Then I joined Honeywell UOP to understand best practices in FCC and other technologies. With both plant and design experience coupled together, I leveraged my expertise for projects like profitability improvement, feasibility, and configuration studies in KBC.
I am equally passionate about keeping fit, working out, going for long runs and playing tennis. I am based out of Toronto and love to travel, cook and spend time with my family.
