Senior Group Manager

Take a large portion of Results. Add an almost equal measure of Fun. Blend in a large spoonful of Innovation and a few pinches of Dynamism and Energy. That is the recipe for the Bain Capability Centre. I have developed not only professionally but also personally at the BCC. Bain is like home – I have met many of my closest friends, including my husband, at Bain. double-quote-close

Journey at BCC
Ira joined the Bain Capability Centre in 2004, as an Analyst, when Bain first set up operations in India. She has had an incredible journey over the last 13 years and has seen the office grow many fold!

Ira established and manages the regional private equity teams at the BCC, which works on live diligences across multiple industries. She also supports the development of the general pool/ flexible capacity business which works on important strategy and operations cases. Recently, she helped set up the analytics team at the BCC, working in the chosen industry verticals analyzing go-to-market strategy for key clients. Ira has also led the staffing function for the last several years.

Ira describes her journey as exciting and challenging, where she has worked not only on a variety of industries spanning industrials, financial services, consumer products and retail but also across types of work including analytics, survey analysis, and due diligences to name a few. Ira has also transferred to the Mumbai and London offices, working on front-end consulting projects in consumer products and industrial goods.
