SIMSR is a home to illustrious alumni spread all across the globe at reputable positions in the industry. They also connect with the current batches and share their vast knowledge and experiences.
We had a golden opportunity to connect with our Alum Mr. Hiten Ghelani from the batch of 1988-90. He is currently the CEO at Mahindra Marine. Before Mahindra, he was associated with Godrej which is a very well-known trusted brand in India and has a high recall value. His journey comprises working in different fields such as Sales, Marketing, Service and Strategy that helped him have a better understanding of the diverse needs of people across different demographics and attain first – hand knowledge of the ground reality.
Reminiscing his days at SIMSR, he told us about how he managed to launch Investrix & other annual events to carve a niche for SIMSR despite the then scarce infrastructure at SIMSR. He talked about the Educational diversity in SIMSR which helped him broaden his perspective with likes of graduates in Economics and Arts, Chartered Accountants and Doctors.
He advised students to enjoy the two years of MBA life. Staying away from the rat race mentality and paying attention to mental and physical health is of utmost importance according to Mr. Ghelani. While signing off, he encouraged students to be bold enough to speak their mind and voice their opinions without any inhibitions.
We thank Mr. Hiten Ghelani for his golden words, and we wish him luck for all his future endeavors.
