His Corporate Background
His background includes being an auditor and accountant. He served as an associate consultant in one of the country’s top professional firms and worked in a multinational ship-management company. He was heavily involved in process improvement. Now, he is into people improvement. He realized, “Process improvement is nothing without people improvement.”
He always aspires for top performance. This led him to become the youngest supervisor in his company then. But he admits, it took him a year to overcome his hesitations and reservations. Transformation came in and his performance was boosted. His last company promoted him twice in a span of three years. Along with senior employees, they gave him a seat to participate in a Leadership Development Program which content was provided by Harvard Business Publishing. Chris emerged as the Top Test Scorer of the pioneering batch.
