Aditya’s vision is to keep scaling up the corporate ladder by nurturing business leadership wherever he goes.

In the early 2000’s he sold TVS’s computer peripherals to the dealer, distributor and institutional channels (like LIC & Mantralaya) in Mumbai Metropolitan Region. Thereafter, he changed tracks and had super successful stints, leading teams, in globally famous US based organizations like Citibank and Cargill. At the time of leaving Cargill last year, he was Senior Director of Cargill’s Trade & Capital Markets business covering Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Mauritius, Nepal and Sri Lanka. Recently he facilitated a substantial medium term project finance investment into operationalizing Bangladesh’s largest solar power plant affirming his personal commitment to the growth of clean, renewable energy and sustainable financing in South Asia.
