Date: Thursday , May 07, 2009
Chennai based Symbiotic InfoTech has found a new CEO in Sunil Kumar. An MBA who also possesses a Masters in sociology and psychology from Mumbai University, Kumar is a strategic thinker with over 10 years of experience in telecom, media, Internet, and consumer durables. His prior experience includes handling key positions in Bharti Airtel, indiatimes.com, various other telcos, and consumer durable majors.
As a part of the senior management, Kumar will be responsible for building the Symbiotic brand globally. “I would also be closely involved in developing and implementing company strategies, including taking new products and solutions to the market, making the business plan, understanding the market and competitors, and defining, communicating, and implementing the value proposition, and HR activities,” he says.
Being people focused with the ability to look at the ‘big picture’ are two of his greatest strengths. He believes in the leadership mantra of hard work with positive attitude. Kumar advises the young techies to be specialized in a particular technology or domain rather than being a ‘Jack of all trades’. An avid golf player, Kumar also loves snooker and billiards. Also a voracious reader, he likes to keep himself updated with the developments in technology and business.
