As a Territory Sales Manager to the General Trade Department, Pardeep has overcome numerous odds and successes along his journey. An active extra-curricular lifestyle during his undergraduate years exposed him to various industries and business fields which allowed him to discover his true passion. It was the penultimate year of his Engineering course when Pardeep discovered that he would like to venture into the FMCG industry and his passion to be a business leader in an organization.

He further added that most individuals will go on a “settle down” mode, however the few who remains agile to adapt and drive positive change in their environment will be the ones who will bring the organization to the next level of success. “There is no limit to developing self-capability. Anything that seems out of our capacity can be learned, trained, and refined”.
