My short-term (within 5 years) goal is to become Country-Head / CEO of Morningstar’s international business unit in Asia or Latin America, and build it into a profitable and sustainable organization. My long-term (within 10 years) goal is to become a CEO of Morningstar’s international business globally. Personally, I am passionate about teaching, acting, adventure sports and fitness. My personal goals are to run a marathon and to set-up a nonprofit organization in the field of education.
Managing a business has always been my passion and the ultimate career goal. As I grew through my career, I followed a progressive career path towards reaching my goal. While working in software technology company and designing and consulting the cutting-edge products, I quickly realized my strengths – understanding the business. At a tender age of 22, I was consulting with global product owners to understand the business proposition out of every product. I realized the best way to learn about the business was by solving complex business issues. That was when I decided to move to consulting and started working on some of the most complex business engagements for global clients, and in tern started learning corporate business more closely. I enjoyed the experience, diversity, team environment, and the success achieved through my career in consulting. After gaining depth of knowledge in functions such as finance and systems, I moved to take up a corporate position to manage these functions, and reached up to the roles of corporate director.
My strategy for future growth is – putting knowledge and experience to work. I will continue to work within my current position for next two years and gain deeper business experience. After that, I will transition to our international business unit to take up Country-Head / CEO position for one of the international businesses. Managing international business in today’s globalized world will be challenging and interesting, and it will fulfill my career goal.
As I execute my strategy to achieve end goals, I continue to use my experience and knowledge to achieve successful results. However, I find a need for me to acquire fundamental knowledge of different business functions – international business, marketing, and strategy, and develop advanced skills in general management to be able to make informed decisions as a business leader.
