The company welcomed Dipti Bhatia as Finance Director, Sourabh Sharma as Director of Media Products, and Sai Prakash Dilipkumar as Director of Technology and Operations. All three leaders joined the company through virtual onboarding.

"The impressive experience and skills Dipti, Sourabh, and Sai bring to the table will help us accelerate our journey to establish India as the engine powering dunnhumby's growth. It's not easy to join a company and lead a new team virtually, but the way they have settled in is amazing. It's a new world!" said Manoj Madhusudanan, Head of dunnhumby India.
With more than 22 years of success as a senior finance leader, Dipti Bhatia joins the company in a strategic role as Finance Director. Prior to joining dunnhumby, Dipti served multiple leadership roles at Philips, SC Johnson, Agilent Technologies, and Honeywell.
"Although significantly divergent from the traditional in-person on-boarding process, the virtual on-boarding at dunnhumby has been one of the best on-boarding experiences I've had so far. Extensive pre-joining interaction and use of on-boarding tools made me feel I was an integral part of dunnhumby family weeks before the actual joining date," highlighted Dipti.
"Proactive communication from all stakeholders allayed apprehensions around 'working effectively', while being remote in a totally new orgsation. To say the least, my experience of joining dunnhumby during this unprecedented time has been pleasantly unique," added Sourabh Sharma, who joins dunnhumby India as Director of Media Products.
Sourabh has over 16 years of well-rounded experience across product management, consulting, and technology. An IIM Lucknow alumnus, Sourabh served at Droom.in, Aeris Communications, NTT Data, and Infosys Technologies prior to joining dunnhumby.
Former country head of SunGard Availability Services, Sai Prakash Dilipkumar joins dunnhumby India as Director of Technology and Operations.

Prior to dunnhumby, Sai worked with orgsations such as ZS Associates and Symantec.
"It's a unique proposition to be part of a 'Customer First' firm that helps orgsations make better customer-centric decisions based on data science. This creates an incredible opportunity to drive innovation with cutting edge technology in today's time. This is very exciting and is one of the many reasons to be part of dunnhumby right now," explained Sai.
