About Me

My background is in investment equity research, investment banking, primarily M&A and restructuring and private equity investment and corporate development. I have extensive deal origination and transaction execution track record and thorough understanding of various industries

Presently I am an investment professional in the private equity space responsible for new investment/ divestment analysis & execution and portfolio companies’ growth through M&A and/or corporate development strategies. I also act as a senior advisor for investment banking transactions and growth investments for third parties.

I have strong experience assessing and sourcing opportunities for organic and inorganic development across business units and in implementing both organic and external growth initiatives via mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, asset swaps and strategic investments and secondarily focus on developing and evaluating corporate strategies associated with such initiatives.
