Prince found his calling – rather cold-calling – rattling the doors of the mega-rich and not-so-rich in Mumbai during his junior marketing days, way back in the early ‘90s. Those days spent under the hot sun also shaped his people philosophy. Here he understood the power of empathy, inspiration and leadership.
Even after 25 years in the business, Prince’s first love is meeting people – customers, suppliers and his teams. He crams an impossible schedule into his daily work routine. He still made time to complete a Small Business Lifecycle Management course from Harvard University and the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Bootcamp from MIT. Even so, he strongly believes his working years in Mumbai were his best university days, and it was the turning point in his life.
His passion lies in finding the right solutions for customers – friends he calls them – and spending time on the shop floor egging his team to do even better. He is seen as a natural problem-solver – his team, friends and even random acquaintances gravitate towards him seeking counsel.
At home, when he is not being the life and soul of the party, or bonding with family and friends, you’ll find him belting out tracks from blues to grunge, or retro Hindi and Malayalam hits.
