Vivek advises companies in the business-to-consumer (B2C) space across digital, industrial, and consumer sectors in the region and also leads the firm’s CEO practice in India. He is based in New Delhi.
I greatly enjoy three things about being at Egon Zehnder: (a) working with some amazing people at the firm; (b) supporting mission-driven companies looking to impact the world in meaningful ways; and (c) having lots of fun while doing this.
Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Vivek was an Associate Partner at McKinsey & Company, where he advised auto and industrial-goods clients. He led the inception of the McKinsey Leadership Institute and led innovative work on leadership development for clients across the region. Previously, Vivek worked at GEMS Education, where he helped establish four schools, and at the Tata Administrative Service, where he worked across sectors.
Vivek has a degree in international trade from Mumbai University; an MBA from the Indian Institute of Management in Lucknow; and a degree in policy from Harvard University, where he was a Fulbright Scholar. He is a certified leadership coach. Vivek is very passionate about education and frequently does pro bono work with education companies. In his spare time, he enjoys the theater and playing squash.
