A graduate of Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Bangalore, Bhavana joined the corporate world starting with Consulting at The Boston Consulting Group, followed by almost 13 years in the Manufacturing & Engineering sector with the US MNC Cummins India Limited. Setting up and running businesses with expertise in the areas of leadership, strategic thinking, sales and marketing, Bhavana enjoys working with people across the spectrum of hierarchies and organizations.
She currently lives with her family- Mother, spouse and daughter (in the order of arrival into her life)- in the Maximum city Mumbai. Bhavana serves as an Independent Director on the Boards of several public companies while also actively mentoring and coaching many more to tread the path less trodden- because she knows that nothing is impossible when one puts one’s mind to it. An anomaly in an engineering and male-dominated manufacturing sector, Bhavana went onto run businesses as their first woman leader.
