Patient perseverance produces pugilistic prodigies. I am patient by nature.
The lines between work and free time are beyond blurry for Anupam Chakrabarty. They are non-existent. “One easily flows into the other, and that makes it all the more fun. Most of my everyday social relations have been gathered from various parts of my work life.” Constantly honing up his culinary skills acts as his biggest stressbuster.
Since 2017, Chakrabarty has been wearing two hats at the same time. One with the title of SVP Asia, and the other one titled SVP Group Marketing, Sales, and Customer Engagement. “My primary focus is to create and support strategic initiatives. The aim is to drive business growth, facilitate resources, and challenge my team members with new ideas and perspectives.” As for objectives, Chakrabarty is always looking for business impact. “Whatever the initiatives that we work with might be, we need to understand the value that it brings to our customers and how that drives our business growth.”
He is an engineer by profession, and among other things, he spent a decade working for Shell before joining Lindström. “For me, one of the most essential elements when choosing an employer is that the purpose of the organization should be aligned with my purpose in life. I found that in Lindström.
As a leader, I love to work with people and help them shine in their roles. As they develop and grow, so does the organization.” Having the overarching responsibility for operations in Asia requires frequent visits to the different countries. Anupam Chakrabarty likes to stay involved. “Working closely with the countries exposes you to unique thoughts and ideas from those countries. These ideas can also benefit the rest of the company. While each country has its own uniqueness, my job is to support the countries in achieving their targets and goal. At the same time, I need to remain aligned with the organization’s vision.”
Anupam Chakrabarty highlights Lindström’s adaptability. “One of our core strengths is our ability to listen to our customers from different industry segments. Due to this trust level, they can open their current and future needs transparently to us, which drives most of our actions in the company, thereby building stronger customer relationships.”
