Tell us a bit about your career in hospitality/ technology and the journey to STAAH
I have always been passionate about technology and knew it was my calling fairly early in my working life. I started my career with a coupon based company – Groupon, where I used to meet various service providers and assist them in growing their business. It was during these meets that i connected with several hoteliers, and got intrigued towards hospitality industry. Wanting to delve further, I joined OYO rooms, where I was a part of the corporate sales team. The meets with hotel owners, corporate customers, travel agents, groups et al., opened up the whole industry working in front of me and I instantly knew that i belong here.
STAAH happened about two and a half years ago, and has been a natural progression to my career, keeping in line with my passion for technology and love for hospitality. Here, I help find solutions to help properties – small, medium or large unleash their true online potential with the right technology.
What do you like most about STAAH and your job?
I love the freedom that STAAH provides. The culture, the people, and the products set STAAH apart from many others. The opportunities here are endless, thereby making it an incredibly exciting place to work. I have been able to manage multiple projects and have visibly seen the impact it has made to the businesses of our partners.
The team here is amazing, and the energy and commitment is unbelievable. The positivity around gives me a lot of confidence to push further and deliver.
Along with great work dynamics, the fun we share during saturday games, special day celebrations, walkathons and other get togethers, further seals our bonding.
Your success mantra?
Patience & Perseverance are key to success. Results will flow in if you keep the focus and patience.
When faced with challenging times, I prefer to concentrate on the relationship while keeping a strong faith on our capabilities.
Your interests outside STAAH. Do they help you do your job better?
I love photography and am crazy about shooting landscapes, wildlife, & fashion. Photography helps me see things in another perspective, thereby paving an easy way out from many difficult situations in my job.
I’m also an animal lover and absolutely crazy for dogs and cats. My love seems to attract them to me as well, for, in a recent walkathon at Mumbai, I had a good following of dogs right behind me (laughs). Being with my pets is a great stress buster and i look forward to spending time with them, and unwind after my day’s work.
I love to eat too, and relish almost anything. But I am super fond of sweets, to the extent that I have eaten 15 Rasgullas [Indian sweet] at one go.
