industry projects fueled his dream and finally
he got his first offer letter from the leading airconditioning company ‘Blue Star Ltd., Delhi’
as a management trainee.

It was not an easy start at all. So he left
the ‘MBA’ tag soon & rolled up his
sleeves. Hours spent on the roads, with
customers & dealers helped building the
first step as a ‘Sales professional’.
