Pratishtha- Notable Alumni of IIML

  2. 2. SHANMUGAM MANJUNATH (1978-2005) Manjunath, or Machaan as he was popularly known among his friends in IIM Lucknow, has immortalized the core values that are ingrained in every student of IIM Lucknow – integrity, sincerity and determination. He was a terrific singer, full of verve and heart and performed as part of the campus band Three.Four. Manjunath's courageous act of taking on fuel adulterators may have cost him his life, but also ensured that the whole country woke up to the plight of those who fight corruption. His unfortunate death caused an uproar amongst students across IIMs and IITs and in no time garnered unprecedented unanimous nation-wide support. The Manjunath Shanmugam Trust (MST) was formed soon after by members of the international IIM alumni network, which fought to ensure justice prevailed with the trial being completed in a record nine months. The efforts of several RTI activist working with the MST has resulted in the cabinet passing the Public Interest Disclosures Bill, 2010 in Aug 2010, which will become a shield for whistle-blowers and people who expose corruption and scams. Class of 2003
  3. 3. From a modest beginning in 1984-85, operating out of a make shift arrangement in the heart of Lucknow city, IIM Lucknow has now transformed into a world-class institute with multiple campuses and numerous international linkages. Lord Chesterfield once famously said: “The knowledge of the world is only to be acquired in the world and not in a closet”. With this philosophy, IIM Lucknow has encouraged holistic learning among its students. Beyond the walls of the classrooms; over and above the functional domains of b-school subjects; IIM Lucknow has embraced diversity now well reflected in its students and illustrious alumni. For 26 years, the flame of ambition, determination and leadership, ignited at IIM Lucknow, has been the candle in the wind for our torchbearers. Many of them have achieved unparalleled success in t h e w o r l d ' s m o s t r e c o g n i z e d organisations displaying enthusiasm, level-headedness, commitment and ethos. Others have built on the training imparted at IIM-L, to initiate their own ventures in fields as varied as education, market research, music & film. In the pages that follow, we showcase these individuals who have left their imprints on the world. This is by no means an exhaustive list, rather a sampling of the many achievers who have graduated from this fine institution. For batches both present and future, these stellar examples will serve as a source of inspiration, propelling them to the great heights that the world has come to expect of IIM Lucknow and its alumni. DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE Dr. Devi Singh
  4. 4. ANINDO SENGUPTA Class of 2001 Head-Project Management Group, Microland We all slogged hard to keep pace with the rapid and rigorous MBA program but what I truly cherish from my IIML days is my time spent in Placecom, where the whole team had an almost fanatical goal to get the best of the recruiters in the world to IIML. I also had a great time as a part of our rock band 3.4 Km along with a bunch of talented musicians and it was an all time high to open for Parikrama at Manfest 2000! DATTATRAY PANDIT Class of 1995 Associate Director-Investment Banking, Motilal Oswal ANUJ PANDEY Class of 1999 Senior VP, Religare Insurance Broking Career Path Regional Head, Barclays Bank Direct Sales Head, Credit Cards, ABN AMRO Bank I remember how Prof Chakraborty used to lock the door sharp at his designated time before start of each class and how we had to sprint to avoid standing outside his class 3 ANITA GARG Class of 1991 Director and Co-founder, Jade Group, Hong Kong Jade Group conducts classical shows, Bollywood concerts, corporate events, product launches, movie premieres, press conferences and exhibitions in APAC. 2 ASHISH JAIN Class of 1998 Principal, Booz & Company, New York My education at IIM Lucknow was a turning point in my life. My experience and learning from the two years I spent at IIM-Lucknow have been a significant contributor to my growth, both personally and professionally MANMOHAN BHUTANI Class of 1987 Vice President – People & Operations, Fiserv Global Services The approach we adopted for analyzing and discussing different cases in IIML was really handy in corporate life when faced with real life problems. I could apply these learnings to analyze problems strategically and in totality while appreciating different perspectives/ views. The lessons in team work/ collaboration along with communication/ presentation skills that I learnt in IIML were extremely useful in the daily corporate life
  5. 5. ANJALI MULLATTI Class of 1993 CEO & M.D, Finitiatives Learning India Owner, Catalyst Consulting Founding and Managing Trustee at The Manjunath Shanmugam Trust ARUP MUKHOPADHYAY Class of 1991 BHAVESH SOMAYA Class of 2001 Head - Consumer Planning & Strategy, Diageo India Career Path AVP, Corporate Brand Management and Marketing, Fullerton India Brand Manager - Snacking, Cadbury Head-Consumer Banking, Executive VP & Group Head - Retail Banking, Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank, Abu Dhabi DEEPAK MISHRA Class of 1996 Principal, McKinsey & Co., London Career Path Senior Consultant, Accenture BHARAT RAO Class of 2000 Vice President, Barclays Capital, New York Frequent mentions in the media of batchmates who are star fund managers or successful entrepreneurs etc., testify the steadily growing brand equity of IIML and it continues to propel us forward AJAY SIKKA Class of 1987 Sr. Director, Microsoft, Seattle Career Path CEO at IndiaHQ Solutions, Inc. Group Manager, Microsoft, Vermeer 54
  6. 6. AJAY KAUSHAL Class of 1992 Co-founder & Director, BillDesk BillDesk is one of India’s largest electronic payment systems. Spanning across 80 locations in India with over 400 employees, BillDesk powers electronic payments across all large organizations in India AMITABH VERMA Class of 1998 Head – Cash Management, DBS Bank India Career Path Sr. Vice President, HSBC DEVRAJ DOSS Class of 1996 Director (Head)-Corporate Finance Audit, Middle East, Siemens AG, Dubai Career Path CFO, P&G, India AMIT BANATI Class of 1990 President-North Asia & Asia Pacific, Kraft Foods, Singapore Career Path President – Pacific, Cadbury Regional Finance Director - Asia Pacific, Cadbury CFO, Procter & Gamble, India DEEPAK MAJEETHIA Class of 1991 Senior Vice President, Genpact DEEPAM SANGHI Class of 1999 Director, Rothschild Career Path Manager, Rothschild, London Consultant, AF Fergusson The exposure, training and stimulation that we received at IIM Lucknow was the defining experience that enabled us to contribute and succeed in the corporate world. I know the vast community of the alumni will forever be grateful to IIM Lucknow and to the professors who have shaped us. 76
  7. 7. ANAND SHAH Class of 2000 Head-Equities, Canara Robeco Mutual Fund Career Path Associate Vice President, Kotak Asset Management Co. Fund Manager, ICICI Prudential AMC DHIMANT SHAH Class of 1994 Head-Proprietary Trading, JP Morgan, Singapore IIML played an extremely important role in the development of my personality as it was the first time I had stayed away from home. Our batch was extremely friendly hence even an introvert like me made friends easily. However, the most important lesson for me was the realization that money is not the barometer for determining brilliance, success, relationship and above all happiness. Having come from Mumbai, this was a big eye-opener and confidence booster for me in those days. The stint at IIML was one of the most pleasant experiences for me in this lifetime AMITABH CHAKRABORTY Class of 1994 Managing Director & Chief Investment Officer, Kitara Capital Career Path President (Equity), Religare Securities Business Head - Private Client Group, Brics Securties Head of Research - Private Client Group, Kotak Securities ANAND LUNIA Class of 1998 Partner, Seed Fund Seedfund is a unique type of venture capital fund, which believes in smaller investments but closer relationship with its companies. The sectors they mostly invest in are internet, media, mobile, telecom, retail, consumer-facing plays and also things that aren’t yet “sectors”. 8 RAJIV SABHARWAL Class of 1990 Executive Director & Head-Retail Banking, ICICI Bank Career Path Executive Director at Sequoia Capital Senior General Manager at ICICI Bank Regional Credit Oficer at GE Capital MANAVV MIANWAL Class of 1999 Strategist, Wolff Olins, Dubai Wolff Olins is a brand consultancy based out of London, New York City and Dubai. It advises corporations on brand-led strategy, innovation, transformation and communication. 9
  8. 8. ANANTH NARAYAN Class of 1993 MD & Regional Head-Fixed Income, Currencies and Commodities, South Asia, Standard Chartered Bank RAMESH GANESHAN Class of 1992 CEO, HDB Financial Services Limited Career Path Chief Operating Officer, Intelenet Global Services Vice President, HDFC Bank Limited Risk Manager, GE Countrywide ASEEM BHATNAGAR Class of 2000 Vice President, Citigroup, Canada The infrastructure and academic ambience at IIM-L even then was excellent - very conducive to a well rounded management education. I think those who pass out of IIM-L are stable and grounded, well read and sensible, and at the same time nurture this burning desire to succeed. You won't find them asking for a pay hike or a bigger role the moment they walk into your organization - they know they have to earn their stripes - and they will In terms of memories , it is more like a movie rewind where I remember the beautiful campus, the tough but fair professors, the badminton court parties, the H-6 Tops get- togethers, the stress of exams and then the euphoria of final placements and finally a sense of loss as I had to finally leave the campus after graduation ceremony 10 Career Path MD, Head of Global Rates South Asia, Deutsche Bank ATUL KUMAR GUPTA Class of 1987 Senior Vice President, Oracle GAYATRI GANJAWALLA Class of 2001 Bollywood Actress/Singer My advice to future leaders would be to believe in the saying that instinct is honest, reason often isn't 11 RAJARAM R Class of 1992 Director, Staffing, Dell International I am from the last batch which graduated from the Aliganj Campus in Sector I. I think it was one of the most rewarding experiences for me personally. Looking back, I feel it gave me a great opportunity to do more with less. Space was less but the learning opportunity was immense which overshadowed everything else. I think the institute had a lot to contribute to what I am today
  9. 9. NEERAJ GAMBHIR Class of 1995 MD & Co-Head, FID, Nomura Capital India Career Path MD-Head of Credit Business, Lehman Brothers Global Head-Structured Finance, Advisory and Asset Liability Management, ICICI Bank PANKAJ SALUJA Class of 1998 Partner, Bain & Company Career Path Manager, Accenture Area Sales Manager, Coca-Cola While engineering provided an analytical grounding, IIM-L honed business instincts and providing an excellent launch pad to think big, think different DIVYA GURURAJ Class of 1992 Managing Director, Mediacom 12 PUNEET SATYAWADI Class of 2001 Director, Jardine Lloyd Thompson The two years at IIML were like a slow release drug. Taken once, the benefits last a lifetime - in the way of thinking it promotes, the tools it provides, the friends you meet and in creating a network that is bond by the brand RAJIV MISHRA Class of 1994 MD, CLP Power India PRABAL CHAKRABORTY Class of 1989 Group Vice President, Johnson & Johnson 13
  10. 10. PANKAJ MAHESHWARI Class of 1999 SVP & Head - North India, Crédit Agricole-CIB Venkatadri Ranganathan Class of 1991 VP, Domestic Business at Rallis India Limited NITHYA EASWARAN Class of 1996 Principal, Multiples Alternate Asset Management Career Path Director, Fixed Income Capital Markets, Citibank PRABHAT AWASTHI Class of 1994 MD-Head of Equities Research India, Nomura Securities Career Path Manging Director at Lehman Brothers Securities Vice President at Morgan Stanley VISHAL CHADHA Class of 1996 Head – Retail & Customer Marketing, Nokia PARAG TIKEKAR Class of 1997 Head, Business Intelligence, Emirates Bank, Dubai 14 15 I remember my good days with IIML with nostalgia: the initial excitement of joining a premier B-school during my final year of graduation; the guidance from my IIML seniors for getting through the grueling 2-year power-packed PG program; the nervousness during the 1st year’s Summer placements; the enjoyable days of Manfest and finally the final-year placement sessions! IIM-L is where I first learnt how to manage work & life. The multiple priorities and high pressure, typical of today’s corporate life, was in some measure experienced at IIM-L. The learning journey was tough but a lot of fun also. I also found love at IIM-L and Shobha and I are happily married batchmates!
  11. 11. NITHIN CHANDRA Class of 2003 Engagement Manager, A.T. Kearney MAHADEVAN NARAYANAMONI Class of 1998 Partner, Grant Thornton RISHABH SAKSENA Class of 1993 RATISH TREHAN Class of 1999 Career Path Vice President – International Business – Asia Pacific, Glenmark Pharmaceuticals GIRISH DESHPANDE Class of 1993 Managing Partner – Special Opportunity Fund, Milestone Capital We were a lucky batch, the last batch to operate out of the old aliganj campus and the first batch to graduate from the new campus. It was the best of both worlds. I also remember our hostel winning the inter-hostel sports competition, sikandar trophy as it was called in the first year of such an event and contributing significantly in the basketball victory PRASHANT MULEKAR Class of 1991 Co-founder & Executive Director, Geodesic Ltd. 16 17 Vice President, Lupin Ltd. MD, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, Singapore I have fond memories of our hostel (H3) winning the inaugural Sikandar trophy ! My advice to future leaders from L, Don't compromise on your choice of career; pursue the path that best suits your aspirations
  12. 12. ANUP MAHESHWARI Class of 1993 EVP & Head-Equities & Corporate Strategy, DSP BlackRock AMIT GUPTA Class of 1992 Chief Operating Officer, Planet M Career Path CEO, Viswas Business Synergies Head Operations, The MobileStore Ltd Strategic Business Head, Chellarams Plc 18 19 VINIT S CHAUHAN Class of 1993 Head, Planning & Analysis, J P Morgan Chase, Singapore IIM Lucknow has been the keystone of my career; the dual emphasis which the Institute works with concentrates not only on providing management related skills and knowledge, but also helps develop better learning, analytical, and adaptive skills. IIML calls this "learning to learn" and with the extensive demands on managers in the current scenario, this skillset is very much required SAMEER BHARGAVA Class of 1997 Chief Technology Officer, Pure Safety, Nashville Beyond all the decision making frameworks and functional expertise, IIM Lucknow, by way of surrounding me with brilliant teachers and students, imparted me with a certain humility which has allowed me to introspect, find chinks in my armor, mend them and grow and learn every day ABHISHEK GANGULY Class of 2002 Career Path Regional Manager, Reebok India The variety of opportunity that IIML brought with it meant that diverse people created their own ways to experience the 2 years. With every passing batch, the family of IIML is growing. We are no longer a new kid on the block. Alumni strength can be felt across industries, corporates and entrepreneurial ventures. I am confident that as an institute we will create further milestones which all of us will be proud about Director - Sales & Marketing at Puma MRIDULA TANGIRALA Class of 1997 Director - Operations, Taj Safaris Memories of IIML are synonymous with memories of wonderful people that I met there. The rush to grab the books before the library closed, or the various techniques for securing a seat in the computer center and of course, not to forget the hot Maggie in a cold night
  13. 13. NOOPUR CHATURVEDI Class of 2001 VP, Product Head – Business Banking & Consumer Assets at ING Vysya Bank PRANAY NARVEKAR Class of 1996 Vice President, Rosy Blue Founded in 1960, Rosy Blue is one of the most renowned diamond and jewelry companies in the world.

TARUN KHANNA Class of 1996 Head-Marketing, Fiat India Career Path GM – Marketing & Product Planning, Ford India Brand Manager, Arvind Brands The time spent at IIM- L was two of the most enriching and rewarding years of my life. It wasn’t just the curriculum and learning that prepared us for the Corporate World, but also the fact that we were in an environment where we not just studied but also lived together, with a diverse set of people who possessed intelligence and skills in different areas, and each one a winner in his or her own context. The interactions with the faculty and fellow students stirred our minds and made us strive for excellence in our future endeavours in the outside world AMRESH ACHARYA Class of 1992 Senior VP, RBS Coutts Bank, Singapore Career Path Director, Deutsche Bank SHAILESH G. JEJURIKAR Class of 1989 Vice President – North America Homecare, P&G, Cincinnati Member of the Business Advisory Board of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore 20 21 At IIML we learnt very early the importance of being a part of the solution.. Advice to students- “Always seek out a purpose bigger than your personal success. It is a defining feature of inspiring leaders because it drives very high levels of passion which is contagious SANDEEP DHINGRA Class of 1994 Director, Kelusa Capital Asia, Singapore I learnt a lot in the classroom and outside it, the key to it was the sheer intensity with which we approached everything on the campus, whether it was academics, cultural activities or my time at the placement committee. We set high targets and worked towards them with terrific intensity. I think that has really been my motto in life ever since
  14. 14. SANJAY SHIVNANI Class of 1992 President & CEO, Career Launcher India Ltd NAREN CHANDRA Class of 1994 Head – Marketing, Noor Islamic Bank, Dubai Career Path Head – Marketing, Emerging Markets, Barclays Bank DGM & Head – Marketing, ICICI Bank RAJENDRA JAIN Class of 1994 Investment Technology Group, Inc. is an independent agency broker and financial technology firm that is a worldwide leader in electronic trading since launching the POSIT® crossing network in 1987.

I feel lucky that I enjoy my job and look forward to meet Mr. Market every day. It would not have been possible without the IIML route - I entered the asset management industry via my first campus job at SBI Mutual Fund. I had a tough schedule at IIML - the fact that attendance was really necessary (what with surprise quizzes etc. and a small class size) and that I was also in the Placement Committee Being an IIML alumni is always a great door opener & for me personally a great achievement. Even today, I wear this on my sleeve. It enables some extra non business conversation at most meetings & I use it to my advantage because it gets attention. An IIML tag is hugely aspirational & draws respect MIHIR VOHRA Class of 1994 Fund Manager, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, Abu Dhabi Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) is the largest sovereign fund in the world MD- Global Head, ITG Smart Router™ and POSIT®, ITG, New York
  15. 15. One cannot forget the numerous baddy court parties, the night outs, the trips to Ganj, the thick fog and the numerous other things that make it the quintessential L experience. The place has improved tremendously. The infrastructure is so much better and there are more courses offered as well. We did not have computers in all rooms, email was still relatively new. No Cafe Coffee Days or mobile phones/laptops. As I write this, I get the feeling I am ancient. Dream big. And never lose sight of that goal KAVITHA RAO Class of 2000 GM, Merchandising – Target Retail RAJESH SINGHAL Class of 1995 Managing Partner, Milestone Religare Investment Advisors Career Path Associate Director, Intel Capital Associate Vice President, ICICI Bank Ltd. RAJESH PANCHANATHAN Class of 1995 Senior Executive, Accenture MANOJ TANDON Class of 1989 Director, CSC Whenever I think of Lucknow and my stay at IIM, I am reminded of great fellow students and very approachable faculty, who never behaved like people sitting on a pedestal distributing knowledge but more like people who despite having more knowledge were ready to be challenged and debated with on all topics under the sun. I personally believe IIM had a tremendous influence on my career. Other than the knowledge of how businesses function I think the biggest benefit I got during my stay at IIM was that it fine tuned and prepared me for the business world VENUGOPAL GARRE Class of 2002 VP, Credit Suisse Venugopal is a Lead coverage analyst for industrials, infrastructure and media sector in India RAHUL JAIN Class of 2001 Principal, The Boston Consulting Group IIM Lucknow has played a critical role in my success. The curriculum laid a solid conceptual foundation, the rigour got me ready for the corporate life ahead, and the wide & capable peer g r o u p h e l p e d m e t o d e v e l o p a balanced perspective. The birthday bumps, the mid-night maggis, the dot.com craze are memories forever. Given my wife and brother are both from IIML as well, they say, it runs in my family 24 25
  16. 16. KAMESWARA RAO Class of 1991 Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers His specialities include Corporate Restructuring, Economic Regulation, Financial Reviews, JVs and Acquisitions, Corporate and Process Improvement, Renewable Energy solutions and Commercial Agreements.

RITESH SHARMA Class of 2005 AVP, Kotak Investment Banking Co-author of the best-selling book titled 'Joker In The Pack' SHRIMATI DAMAL Class of 1992 Vice President, Treasury, Majid Al Futtaim, Dubai KAUSHIK SENGUPTA Class of 1991 Associate Professor, Frank G. Zarb School of Business, Hofstra University, New York. IIML was the institution where I first got introduced to the field of Operations Management. Without the education at IIML, I don’t think I would have pursued a doctoral program in Operations and become a business school faculty in the U.S. The courses I ended up taking at IIML and the professors who taught these courses had an enormous influence on me 26 27 The institute infrastructure is at par with the best in the world. The sprawling campus is tastefully done, and is functionally up there with the best. Also, the quality of colleagues one spends two years with is terrific and proves to be the shaping factor - the friendships and networks go a long way! Majid Al-Futtaim is one of the largest conglomerates in the middle east. It has interest in automotives, electronics, insurance, real-estate, retail etc.
  17. 17. RAJNISH KUMAR Class of 1994 Head - Product and Marketing, Fullerton Securities & Wealth Advisors Ltd.

Career Path Brand Manager, Reckitt Benckiser PRAVEEN GUPTA Class of 1996 Founder & Director, Cross-Tab Marketing Services VINAY SEWAL Class of 1992 VP Operations and Marketing, GlobeCast Asia, Singapore It’s been years since I passed out, but it still seems so fresh. Of all the years spent in classes, it is those in Lucknow that I remember the most. Our old campus, apartments that served as hostels, a library situated elsewhere, and so on. Back then calling back home was a walk to a PCO, long waits, and speed talk to save money. Satellite TV hadn’t arrived, and PC had to be booted up from a disk which kept getting corrupted. Our new campus was still a place under construction and enroute were egg paranthas on the highway dhaba. We’d roam the new campus to see the progress of construction. Happily ours was the first batch whose convocation took place from this new campus! RAVI LUTHRIA Class of 2000 Founder, Blibula Marketing Career Path AVP Marketing, Star India Pvt Ltd 30 31 Cross-Tab, a market research outsourcing leader, provides a full range of market research and data analytics solutions to global clients. Being a founder-coordinator of INDEX, the Market Research fair at IIM-L, contributed to the decision as well as helped me in both the ops and functional aspects of a start-up
  19. 19. SANJAY THAPAR Class of 1987 President, Ogilvy & Mather Once you get into an institute like IIM Lucknow. You get the confidence to succeed. Hence you tend to take more bold steps, not risky but bold. ..

Grueling and rigorous schedule along with an outcome driven approach; always adopting an innovative approach to problem solving and learning that there is no substitute for hard and smart work - Things that I picked up from IIML RAKESH JHA Class of 1996 Deputy CFO, ICICI Bank Many of the courses I studied then have indeed been instrumental in building my career. Many of the learnings have stuck with permanent glue -- the one which I still treasure the most was from my Operations Professor "Quick and dirty answer is almost always better than a time consuming precise answer". Along with the then seemingly endless work and study, the two years were equally full of the joys of friendships, movies, parties, festivals and so on ....

I also made a number of friends with whom I continue to be in touch even today. I have a feeling of pride when I come to the Campus periodically SHISHIR MANUJ Class of 2000 Senior Research Analyst, Mangal Keshav We loved the highly-charged discussions on academic and other issues of the day in small and not-so-small groups. I think the key was the kind of stimulating environment it provided in shaping our behavior and actions, which we still find relevant in our professional lives. Despite the size of the batches even then, the faculty-student relationship had a surprisingly personal touch SILVAN VARGHESE Class of 1991 COO & DGM, Khaleeji Commercial Bank BSC, Bahrain 36 37 80% of my angel investors - who loaned me half a million dollars to start Elements Akademia are either colleagues or seniors from IIML. My advisory board - that gave us the much needed initial credibility - is largely professors from IIML Being from an early batch at IIML, the batch size was small and the class room and hostel experience were great. Still recall those excited case study discussions which proved to be of great use in later professional life. For me IIM, L provided the foundation for a career in finance and general management. I am proud to be an alumni and with all the developments since we left the campus, I am sure the institute will reach greater heights as it completes quarter century of its founding Career Path Deputy CFO, P&G

ASHISH RAI Class of 2000 Regional Manager - Business Development, Asia Pacific & Japan, Misys The experience of working on organizing the various events that institute regularly holds gives a priceless experience of managing a complex program, complete with running to a budget and tight timeline while balancing a complex set of stakeholders. The discipline, the confidence and partner-facing skill sets developed through involvement in so many different areas both within and outside the curriculum were equally big takeaways if not bigger 40 RAJARAM PAI Class of 1997 Senior General Manager (International Sales & Marketing), Moser Baer Photovoltaic Ltd Career Path Global Competency Manager, IBM Global Services GM, Delphi Automotive Systems PIJUSH SINHA Class of 2001 The biggest learning from my IIML days has been the lack of fear of failure.. L taught me its alright to fail, but unacceptable to give up.

Today, my mobile phone book contains numbers of numerous IIM L colleagues whose counsel and guidance I readily seek. I have consulted them on at least half a dozen times in the past 10 years, on crucial strategic “Go” / “No-Go” decisions concerning my professional and personal life. This has made a huge difference to where I stand today and where I can potentially be in the future..
