I joined Multiples in October 2018 as Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer. Prior to Multiples, I worked in the Assurance Practice at Ernst & Young and Arthur Andersen for 18 years. As a Partner with E&Y, I was leading assignments in sectors like Technology, Fintech, Media, E-commerce, Logistics, and Consumer Goods. I bring extensive experience working on IPOs both in India and US and supported companies in Mergers & Acquisitions.
At Multiples, I am the Chief Fitness Officer and lead the Fitness Team which ensures that the Fund and our portfolio companies are fit in terms of operations, finance, technology, compliance, governance and risk management for efficient and scalable businesses leading to building valuable sustainable organisations. As part of my role, I work closely with the investment team and portfolio companies during the pre and post-investment cycles. The transition from an accounting firm to Multiples for me has been smooth due to the personal and professional culture and more important warmth and empathy of people at Multiples.
I love family time with my two kids and like to spend time on photography and reading non-fiction. I spend my first hour at the gym making sure I live up to my role at Multiples.
