Why I joined Emmes

I always aspired to give back to society. Emmes seemed like a perfect choice, a well-established organization that deals with human wellbeing and contributes to making this world a better place by helping resolve serious health issues.

How I describe our firm to other people

We are one of the oldest clinical research organizations that provide gold standard services to healthcare companies across the world. We undertake the crucial responsibility of providing solutions to public health issues. In fact, we are one of the pioneers in this area.

A bit about me

I describe myself as a person who is very dependable and approachable at any time for family, friends, and colleagues. I am easy-going and fun-loving, with an undying passion for adventures and sports.

The best part about working here

“If you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life”. I strongly believe in this quote by Mark Twain and, fortunately, experience it every single day at Emmes. The best part about being in the Emmes family is our vision towards a better tomorrow and ideals of never compromising on quality even if the stakes are very high. Our transparency in processes, work-life balance, and policies that take care of employee aspirations make Emmes one of the best places to work.

The best compliment I’ve ever received about Emmes

My heart swelled with pride when a friend of mine, who works for one of the most reputed healthcare institutions in India, said, "We follow Emmes' protocols as reference and guidelines for our research activities".

My background

I come with industry experience of around 20 years in IT Delivery & Operations, Computing Services, Project Management, Quality Assurance, and Software Development. Being the first proud employee of Emmes India in 2006, I had the good fortune of being a part of its growth story since inception and work across multiple functionalities and roles.

In 2011, as an IT manager, I was accountable for Advantage eClinical services and clinical project services. Additionally, I was providing solutions to critical project issues as well as assisting in operations and corporate strategies. Since 2016, as the Director of IT for Emmes India, I have been overseeing technical operations, IT team management, software development, computing services, and working towards improving customer satisfaction and achieving business goals.
