Work area : Operations

What does your typical workday look like?

When the company entrusts you with the responsibility of managing key accounts the level of commitment and day-to-day sense of accomplishment are difficult to describe. My mandate is managing relationships and the business with some of our biggest customers across the country. Everyday, I try to anticipate and meet their stated and unstated requirements in the best possible way. This involves meeting them for periodic business reviews where we discuss how we are progressing as per our set milestones. Monitoring and ensuring that we are on track to achieve these is a major focus and sparks my daily drive to perform.

What have been the most exciting moments in HCCB?

There have been high points aplenty in my 15-year-long journey with HCCB. One that stands out is my role when in the launch of a number of new products like Pulpy Orange and Nimbu Fresh. These products were the result of keen consumer insight and went on to do very well. Another memorable assignment was when I worked with Karnataka general trade. We did lot of work around Bangalore city. Our team really meshed together exceptionally well to turn the operations into a high share market.

What part of your job / role do you love to talk about to your friends and family?

Ideas and how we transmit them, in the process empowering fresh business initiatives, for me that's exciting. Right now, India is in a very exciting phase of entrepreneurship. And I love to talk about the partnerships we have helped nurture and bloom. Let me give you an example: Big Basket, which is online grocery retail. I was there in Bangalore when we started a small setup and about 6 months ago we formalized a national agreement with them and partnered with them from one city to 6 cities. What I also love to talk about is this opportunity to meet entrepreneurs, budding businesspersons, understanding their challenges and figuring out ways in which Coca Cola can partner with them. The possibilities are endless, and exciting.

What's your biggest inspiration / challenges at work?

Inspiration is when you create a win-win partnership with your customers. The beauty in any customer relationship is that you understand that every relationship goes through various lifecycles. To me the challenge is to understand what phase of growth the customer is in. The biggest inspiration is when you meet at the end of the year and customer acknowledges the positive strides we have taken..

What are the 3 things you would tell someone who has never heard about HCCB?

Frontline Focused: We are really really close to market. As a frontline field force we have fantastic relationship with other two million customers.That's staggering by any count.

Operationally Intensive: A great place to be if you want to understand systems, processes, and if you want to understand how to build scale.

Passion: We are an incredibly passionate company, we love to build businesses and we love growth. We are really tuned to stretching ourselves and enjoying every moment to the fullest.
