Vikas KakwaniAssociate Director
Through sheer perseverance and focus, Vikas has come a long way from the narrow lanes of the old Meerut city where he was born and brought up. After graduating in Electrical Engineering with Honours from IIT (Roorkee) in 1993, he completed his post-graduation in Management from IIM (Lucknow) in 1995, majoring in Marketing & Finance.
Since then, he has worked in leadership positions for 20+ years across FMCG, Telecom & Real Estate sectors in India & Middle-East, in Marico, Coca-Cola & Aircel in India and Damac Properties & Scion International in Dubai.
Vikas can be called a “Foundation Expert”, having the analytical & organizational capabilities along with commensurate experience in “creating from scratch” – including building the organisation, establishing sales & distribution infrastructure, automating and integrating business processes, setting up supply chain networks, designing & executing marketing strategy through effective people management and optimum utilization of resources towards achievement of set targets and overall P&L management.
He is a geek, a technology lover and has generally stayed ahead of the curve when it comes to awareness, implementation and early adoption of technology. He is sharp and very good with numbers. He does technical trading in the stock market as a hobby and writes a blog as a way of expression.
He believes in living in Today and his favourite quote is “You are not dead till you die”.
He lives in Mumbai with his wife and teenage son.
