The past 16 years in Decathlon have been full of adventures and valuable experiences in different roles in different countries. I was based out of Bangalore and Chennai from 2006 to 2010, following which I moved to Sri Lanka for three years, setting up production in the country. I then moved to Vietnam as the Zone Leader for South East Asia for Knits, based in Ho Chi Minh City. I was in Bangladesh as the Country Leader. Currently, I am happy to be back in India as the Production Director since July 2021.
A strong development plan and support from my ecosystem have been the fuel to my journey and I'm confident that I will continue to chase higher ambitions with every year passing by. Decathlon is my second home, with a lot of memories, support, and successes, with many more victories in the years to come.
