It’s a fantastic time to be joining the company as it gives me the opportunity to help build and further strengthen the people's development, develop current and bring in fresh talent. It also gives me the opportunity to play a vital role in shaping a culture that will be the key to drive desired business outcome”.
With the kind of experience that he offers, it will be interesting to see how Nimesh leads the company in these trying times in terms of human resource functions and development.
