Then we will work in partnership with the organization to achieve our mutually agreed upon goals.”
Mr. Sinha will play an integral role in the company’s operations, leveraging his vast experience as a visiting faculty at leading business schools across India, where he teaches students in a variety of areas, including Strategic Management, Marketing Management, Consumer Behavior, Quantitative Techniques and Project Management.
