Prior to starting Getting You Rich in August 2012, I worked totally for 14 years with IBM, Citigroup & Sterlite and handled Finance, Project Management and Technology assignments across Information Technology, Banking, Financial Services, Retail & Distribution, Telecommunications & Manufacturing verticals.
In 1998, I started my career with Sterlite Industries (Vedanta Group) & worked in their Optical Fiber & Cable Plant at Aurangabad, Maharashtra for ~ 2.5 years. At Sterlite, I managed working capital, treasury and banking operations. The environment at Sterlite was very challenging but never allowed me to fail. I miss Sterlite days and the enterprising culture, till date.
With that experience being banker from the Corporate side, I then joined Citigroup in Mumbai in 2001 for their Banking Projects & managed global transition & transformation projects for ~5 years. At Citigroup, I met a few very smart people. They really challenged and pushed me. I did not know that my transformation was happening.
With the Project Management experience now, I then worked at IBM in Global and Domestic Services Businesses in Bangalore & Mumbai. While at IBM, I received prestigious 'IBM Certified Delivery Project Executive' and 'IBM Certified Senior Project Manager' certifications. The great managers I worked with at IBM, helped me to grow to my next level. IBM values continue to guide me.
After 6.5 years stint at IBM, my Gujarati background took over and I quit my executive career. I had been helping many friends with their personal finance so I took the plunge, after getting my CFP certification.
And now, I am here - Yey!
From reducing the cost of capital to migrating operations to managing the IT services to helping families to manage their money life, I have handled a wide variety of assignments.
Throughout, I have masterminded several strategies saving substantial money for my employers & clients. On our blog, my article What I learned from IBM, Citigroup & Sterlite has all the lessons that I have learned in my corporate career.
We are very passionate to help you, in any way that we can.
