In my role as a commission manager, I lead a team that delivers specific commissions and take responsibility for end-to-end service delivery. I act as the key day-to-day client interface, ensuring that client objectives are met through the delivery of a value-added service. 

I'm a trained architect with an MSc in construction project management from Loughborough University in the UK. I attained chartered surveyor (MRICS) status in May 2012. I worked in the UK for ten years prior to relocating to India. I have 17 years’ overall experience in corporate interior fit-outs, real estate, residential, education and health sectors.
