Ms Ramakrishnan’s diverse experience spanning geographies and her remarkable leadership experiences will help us scale our business agenda further while crafting a meaningful employee experience,” said Vineet Rao, founder and CEO of DealShare on the appointment.

The commitment of the founders and the leadership team to prioritizing profitability as a key metric to our success, while balancing growth is central to the performance culture that we aim to ingrain. So augmenting the HR function to both enable the business and build a credible employee value proposition is more important than ever. I look forward to working alongside the leadership team to contribute to the larger vision of the company and being a part of this journey,” said Ramakrishnan.
