After spending 15 years of working with amazing brands, global teams and building communities, Pallavi decided to take a break from her ‘job’ to seek answers and reflect on her ‘work’. She took this decision because she is cognizant of the fact that our world is changing fundamentally and radically across various domains and dimensions, especially after the onslaught of COVID-19. The truth is, that great changes have been in the works way before this global pandemic.

The resultant shifts may be far more prevalent in mobility, automation, clean energy, music/entertainment, and healthcare. Based on Pallavi’s rich experience with BMW, MG Motor & Harley-Davidson, her focus and efforts are now aimed at 

  • Demystifying our digital-first reality
  • Creating data centric strategies for business
  • Building purpose & vision based programs for brands

    Pallavi is a rare combination of natural leader, constant learner, entrepreneurial innovator, and effective executor. She served as a key member of my leadership team and contributed to the organization's growth far beyond her marketing responsibilities, helping build a great culture, challenging strategic direction and stepping in to lead cross-company projects. Her core talents in marketing are world-class, working across communications channels and platforms. Superb performer and team player! I hope I can work with Pallavi again soon.

    Pallavi is a bundle of positive energy and creativity. This quality came to the surface during my association as an executive sponsor while she was heading Marketing at MG Motor. I whole heartedly recommend Pallavi for her outcome based approach, tenacity, and a unique bent of creative out of the box thinking. A Marketeer in the truest form, she’s a delight to work with and I wish her all the success in her professional and personal life!

    I’m a huge fan. Pallavi and I worked together when I ran global marketing for Harley-Davidson and she was head of Marketing for H-D India. I was always impressed with her passion, creativity, and drive. She steeped herself in the motorcycling lifestyle and was always seeking better, more powerful ways to connect the brand with local customers and community. Pallavi was also a widely respected leader in the organization – both in India and around the world. I’m thrilled (but not at all surprised) to see her career take off the way it has. Brava!

    I have had the opportunity to work closely with Pallavi at H-D India. Pallavi's ability to think big, think strategic and yet local, is a killer strength. She is never shy of rolling-up her sleeves and getting the work done. She has a very grounded approach and a solutions oriented mind-set that sets her apart from her peers in the industry. A quick learner, a team player par excellence and a natural leader, Pallavi's addition to any team is extremely valuable. I wish her the very best in her career and Im sure our paths will cross again.

    I recommend Pallavi. She impressed me as a multi-talented individual. Her people skills opened many opportunities, her management of her marketing department was based on technical metrics but these were interpreted and delivered in a very approachable way. I liked her leadership style and her ability to 'work' different levels of the organization
