CommSol welcomes Siddharth Karmarkar as we launch in India
Welcome Siddharth Karmarkar! As we at CommSol continue develop our strategic footprint and listen to our clients needs, Asia is a region that we are being asked to, and very much want to, support. As such, it gives me great pleasure to advise that Siddharth Karmarkar (Sid) has joined the CommSol family as Associate Director & Head - India. This is great news and a very welcome appointment for us in the region. Sid will look to support clients locally, as well as in the region more broadly, alongside his team that will be assisting him.
As a little background, Sid brings over 17+ years of deep experience in strategy management, having worked for likes of American Express, Société Générale, HSBC and JPMorgan, across the globe. He is a qualified Chartered Accountant and is passionate about transformation, change and performance management, with deep interests in technology and growth hacking. He is currently furthering a formal education in management at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A), that is ranked amongst the Top B-Schools globally.
Sid will be based in Mumbai, India and with him on board, we are on a strong footing to support our clients in India and Asia more broadly, through 'follow the sun' approach, leveraging global expertise to domestic markets and ensure deeper value-add to our international clients, keeping the ROI at the helm.
Sid commenting on his appointment: “It is tough times, but in the long run, things even out and optimism has always been underlying to mankind’s very existence. At the cusp of where India stands with little under $3T GDP, it is this optimism, that we see, as an opportunity to have CommSol work with India Inc and help businesses fast track growth, leveraging on time tested best practices implemented in mid-large organisations. Over the coming years, we would assist domestic organisations to scale to global standards and attract much-deserved credibility and parallelly ensure deeper value add to our international clients through following the sun approach of servicing, keeping ROI at the helm.”
We very much look forward to working with our clients and partners in this strategically important area for us in India and Asia as a whole.
Some refreshing news in challenging times.
