I'm Manish, and I joined Bain in June 2010. During my time at the BCN, I have spearheaded a number of strategic initiatives and played a key role in developing deep capabilities, focused on both industry verticals and practice areas. In addition to leading teams focused on casework, practice areas and knowledge, I also help build BCN strategy and product portfolio expansion.
My journey at the BCN has been eventful and included many exciting assignments. My projects have required me to understand high-tech semiconductor and next-gen carrier networking technologies, learn financial models and capital market diagnostics, analyze mega trends in industrial goods and services, and probe consumer behavior to comprehend what drives diamond jewelry purchases among Indian women.
"I've worked in multiple industries across regions, which has helped me grow professionally. Hand in hand with the work, the BCN ensures a high fun quotient by organizing karaoke, live sports screenings and great offsites."
Prior to joining Bain, I worked in various roles at Grail Research (formerly a Monitor group company), Arthur D. Little consulting in Dubai, and Cognizant’s business consulting group. I also have four years of entrepreneurial experience doing rural marketing for FMCG in India.
I earned an MBA from the Faculty of Management Studies, Delhi, and an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. I'm also a certified International Investment Analyst from ACIIA, Switzerland.
My 15-year career span has led me to undertake a variety of roles. I've experimented with being an engineer in a chemical plant, a patent attorney, a tea taster, an entrepreneur, a strategy consultant, an investment analyst and a general manager.
