Q1. What is your core strength as a leader?
I love taking up new challenges and throwing myself out of my comfort zone no matter how difficult the problem might be. I do not give up till the problem is solved and believe that there is nothing we cannot accomplish if we put our mind and heart to it. I am passionate about my job as an engineering leader and constantly endeavor to support and guide my team to deliver their best.
Q3. What major decisions have you taken that have changed the future of the organization?
The decision to expand the CPU team to an entire array of disciplines, leading to gaining a major ownership of CPU product design in India has been one of the decisions I am extremely proud of. In addition, the decision to take up the challenge of a two month pull in of an already aggressive schedule and successfully delivering CPU to an extremely important customer is a cherished highlight in my career. This helped me build my credibility among the senior executive leadership at AMD.
Q4. What are your views on the growth of Indian IT market landscape?
Over the last decade, the quality of engineering work that happens out of India has seen tremendous growth. Companies don’t come to India just for cost savings but recognize the quality of engineering talent available in the region. The potential of the engineering talent in India and opportunities are huge and we need to continue to focus on improving the quality of our work and building expertise in areas of design engineering.
