He has successfully straddled the worlds of business and innovation; an accomplished professional with over three decades of experience across three continents; and someone who has put Vadodara on the global automotive map. He has identified 5 points as the keys to success that his own experiences have helped him focus on – the first is HUMILITY, be humble and cultivate mutual respect and trust in the people you are working with.

The second is be a PROBLEM SOLVER, you should always endeavor to be part of the solution not add to the problem. The third is HARD WORK, you must understand that there is no short-cut to success, you have to persevere to get ahead. The fourth is the ability to TAKE RISKS, to understand how to take the initiative with calculated risks as well as intuitive ones. And the fifth is to follow the five Ps – Performance, Presentations, People Skills, Peer Management and Politics/Dynamics.
