“I enjoy the constant balancing act between the art and science of finding the right talent and being part of the solution. Advising clients with data led insights, creating a positive experience for all involved in the talent attraction and acquisition process and witnessing the long lasting business impact of my interventions keeps me energized.”

A seasoned people leader, Saurabh has strong credentials in leadership search, & talent acquisition, in both agency and in-house environments across Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Saurabh’s early career in leadership advisory was shaped with a top tier, publicly listed, global executive search and leadership consulting business where he was part of the leadership team of their global research center.

More recently, Saurabh led the regional talent attraction team for a Fortune 100, Swiss F&B giant across their Asia, Oceania, Africa and Middle East business. As part of a global HR transformation program, Saurabh’s mandate was to steer and turnaround the organization’s fledging in-house talent advisory capability and drive Talent Acquisition excellence by advising the ‘in- market’ HRLT’s on all aspects of the Talent acquisition value chain.
