He graduated from Shri Ram College of Commerce at Delhi University, and went on to become a Chartered Accountant. He started his career at Xerox Corporation, but moved to banking soon thereafter. He has since worked at three of the largest global banking institutions - Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo. His assignments in Financial and Risk management have spanned five continents, and his latest role finds him in the US.
