Khaitan appoints an excecutive director of strategy
Khaitan & Co has appointed its first ever executive director of strategy, putting former KPMG partner Gautam Chemburkar in the role earlier this month.
Chemburkar has 18 years of experience in business management, between investment bank JM Financial and accountancy firm KPMG.
Chemburkar noted that the move represents a change in focus, rather than a change in career:
“Consulting is a business per se, be it accounting or business consulting or be it law. There has to be a business perspective to sustain, prosper and grow. Unless you get a proper understanding of the business, what you’re doing is reactive stuff. So it is important to identify chinks in the armour for a particular business and start to think ahead what could bring the storm,” he said.
