Tête-à-tête with Pulkit Bhandari, Senior Vice President & Head - Group Corporate Finance, RPG Enterprises
Your favourite celeb personality, and why?
There are many. The ones that come instantly to my mind are Tom Hanks and Muhammad Ali. Why? Because of the sheer brilliance they’ve displayed consistently!
Couple of books you would highly recommend to aspiring leaders
Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman and Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell.
If not finance, what would’ve been your alternate career and why?
If not pursuing corporate finance, I would have liked to be an athlete or a mountain climber, competing and representing India at a global level. Access to the large ground and swimming pool was a driver for me to go to school. I remember every race, every swim, every match that I won or lost with as much passion as I would remember every transaction that I closed or failed at, on the corporate finance side.
I believe in RPG’s tenet of Transparency because…
Transparency strengthens an organisation and is a must-have to take any corporation to a different orbit. Every member of the organisation should ooze the same vision and energy. Transparency brings in speed and efficiency – imperative aspects in today’s world, to create value and scale.
