This profile is being managed by my parents and me.
I have been brought up in Bombay..I finished my engineering in BITS Pilani, Goa and my PGDM at the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta.
I hail from an open-minded, nuclear family - my dad retired after 35 years of experience from the liquor industry as Regional Director of Middle East, Africa and Asia of Diageo (however, I do not drink). My mom is a house wife, and has been tutoring students in higher Mathematics for the last 20 years.
I am with a top-tier consulting firm in Singapore..
Apart from my work being very hectic, I do enjoy watching movies. I am a huge fan of Manchester United FC and like traveling (whenever time permits)
My son was brought up in Dubai, and had his education in Dubai and later his Bachelor and Masters education in Australia. He is currently employed in Singapore in a leading Financial consultancy firm as a consultant.
Here's a small excerpt from Sathvik about himself...
To summarize myself in one line: A football enthusiast, an engineer turned management consultant, who is excited by traveling and meeting new people
As someone who has lived in six countries, I have enjoyed exposure to different cultures and developed a network of colleagues, friends and mentors from around the world. My belief system works on the ALPS approach â€“ Aspiration, Luck, Passion, Sincerity, all of which have been crucial in my professional and personal journey thus far.
In terms of my educational background, I completed my high school in Dubai, UAE. Thereafter, I graduated with a B.Eng. (Hons) in Chemical Engineering from National University of Singapore (NUS), which included a one year work study program at University of Pennsylvania (UPenn). After 4 years of work experience with Rolls-Royce, I decided to embark on a full-time MBA at HEC Paris.
Having recently graduated as an MBA, I will be starting as a management consultant soon at McKinsey Asia, based in Indonesia. Although the base is Indonesia, considering the assignment potential, I am flexible to be based out of Singapore, if needed, depending on mutual convenience.
My hobbies are football, photography, traveling and solving puzzles. I am fluent with English, Hindi and Tamil and I have picked up intermediate French during my time in France.
What makes me happy in my professional life? The ability to create an impact and develop myself on a daily basis.
What makes me happy in my personal life? The quality time spent chilling with my parents, close relatives and friends.
What am I looking for in a partner?
Someone with strong family-backed cultural values, a mission to live for and interest to adapt / relocate to Indonesia or potentially any other locations in the future. I would be happy to share further about me while knowing more about you :)
Gokul is simple, affectionate and enjoys spending time with family. In spite of having lived abroad for the past decade, he makes it a point to visit family frequently.
He has lived and worked in quite a few countries - Germany, Japan, UK and Spain - appreciates varied cultures, is easy-going and broad-minded.
He loves travelling - listening to classical music - and likes anything vegetarian - especially South Indian.
