I am a Product Manager with over 7 years of experience serving clients across 10+ countries. I am also a regular speaker at conferences across the globe, on topics like Fintech, CyberSecurity, Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology. I have been a longtime creative thought leader in financial markets, technology and innovation, and an author to one of the best-selling books on blockchain, titled “Blockchain for Business with Hyperledger Fabric” that talks about the advantages of blockchain in building secure enterprise solutions.
I have multiple years of experience in research, development and deployment of secure enterprise solutions across diverse technology stacks. Besides creating enterprise solutions, I also provide training, consultancy and development services, helping clients de-mystify emerging technologies and understand how organisations can leverage its key features. I have conducted lectures for banks, universities and governments, and am affiliated with prestigious technology institutes like University College London, Amity University, and various e-learning platforms. In addition to developing PoCs for banks and governments, I also assist startups and enterprises in developing web/mobile applications as a Product Manager.
I have played a significant role in the adoption and application of technology. Starting my career at State Street Corporation in Boston, which is one of the world’s biggest and oldest financial services company, I initiated the use of advanced statistical and technical tools in the field of socially responsible investment while conducting research on a $170 Billion portfolio. I also served as an integral part of the wealth management team at Charles River Development, whose software supports over $25 Trillion in assets. Playing a critical role in the development of CRD’s wealth solution that was sold to a leading financial institution in USA, I helped quadruple the firm’s largest annual contract value. While executing independent consulting assignments, I have advised a leading sustainability firm to help them better serve their Fortune500 clients.
As part of my Corporate Social Responsibility, I do pro bono work as a mentor at Startupbootcamp - Mumbai. I am trained in emerging technologies like Blockchain from South Africa and hold a Master’s degree in Financial Engineering from The University of Michigan Ann Arbor, USA.
