    VICE PRESIDENT AND PRINCIPAL ANALYST, FORRESTER RESEARCH

    MY WORK EXPERIENCE

    I am a Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research. Before Forrester, I held leadership positions in brand and marketing strategy consultancies, managed the retail business of a Berkshire Hathaway firm, and led product and innovation functions at a Fortune 50 company.

     

    In the course of my career, I've had the chance to work with advise an extensive set of companies across the globe, including these: AbbVie, AstraZeneca, Bank of America, Banco Santander, Cap Gemini, Gore, HSBC, IHG, Infiniti, J&J, Kraft, Lexus, Mastercard, Microsoft, Nestle, PWC, Patagonia, Pfizer, Prologis, Purina, Quicken Loans, Verizon, and YouTube.

    MY BACKGROUND

    I was born in India and moved to the United States after high school to study at Amherst College, where I graduated magna cum laude in Economics and was nominated to the Phi Beta Kappa society. While in the Ph.D. program at the University of Chicago, I was lured away by a consulting firm and left with an MBA in marketing and strategy.

     

    When I'm not at work, you're likely to find me wandering in a distant land, nose buried in a (real) book, eating (spicy) street food, watching cricket, or playing tennis (not very well, I'm afraid).
