Ranjit Nair, Group Director – Corporate Finance, Quess Corp Ltd shares his thought on the alternate dream profession and several other things that will surprise the CFO community.
If I were not a CFO...
A farmer I would be. From where I come, it is the least trumpted but most important profession.
India of My Dreams
I like to vision an India where the poor have an equal say in the growth of the nation. Successful implementation of programmes under NSDC and NREGA will help reduce the inequalities of income in India. Further, while we applaud the diversity of India as a nation, using it for petty politics with the intention of dividing people can stop.
VISION FOR SELF
Make hay while the sun shines
The Leader I Would Like to Be & Why
Vallahbhai Patel for his uncompromising commitment to the unity of India.
One costly mistake that I turned into an opportunity
Joined an organisation in a non-finance capacity. This has helped me make decisions after considering the different perspectives of the stakeholders.
PASSION BEYOND NUMBERS

CARTOON/ FICTIONAL CHARACTER I IDENTIFY WITH
ONE GUILTY PLEASURE
I as a mentor & mentee
Have been blessed with mentors who took my professional growth as their responsibility. Patience, guidance and understanding are the key qualities that have helped me enrich the careers of my mentees.
Where I see India in near and long term
A steady progression from a developing nation dependent on external resources in short term to a nation rubbing shoulders with the most powerful nations and helping shape world policies in the long term.
