Cincinnati Metropolitan Area

I'm an accomplished global supply chain leader with experiences working in matrix organizations and delivering the best outcomes for the customers. I'm passionate about supplier management, defining and leading supply chain strategies & solving problems through data. I love to lead people; coach & empower them to achieve the best results; personally, as well as professionally. I'm a lifelong learner, resilient leader, and strong advocate of collaborative team environment.

I’m a strong believer of continuous improvement, reducing cost & improving margins through financial engineering & close collaboration among functional teams. I've been always curious about learning how leaders make tough decisions during challenging times, how organizations play offense during crisis like situation and how to stay resilient while making a tough decision. I believe that customers’ best interests should be placed at “true north” while shaping today & tomorrow’s strategies.

In my current role at Cargo Aircraft Management, I am spearheading Supply Chain, MRO/Services for aircraft APU’s, landing Gears and engines in various capacity that provides upmost values to our cargo aircraft lessees & customers around the world. Prior to that, I was a site Sourcing/Supply Chain leader at GE Aviation plant and led a team that was responsible for $30M+ direct material purchasing from 100+ suppliers globally. Prior to this role, I had taken over a different opportunity to work as an Integration Project Manager and led enterprise standard finance/accounting/HR projects at GE Global Operations.

Before my role at Global Operations, I worked at Siemens’ engineer-to-make, manufacturing operations unit of AC induction motors as a Sr Procurement Engineer and strengthened liaison between engineering, purchasing, procurement, production control and program management. I pioneered my professional career at GE Aviation by joining the prestigious Edison Engineering Development Program as a Design Engineer, focusing on hardware design ownership of various commercial aircraft engines' parts. I also worked at Caterpillar and Cincinnati Milacron (India) Ltd. as an intern while obtaining undergraduation in Mechanical Engineering.
