Tell me about yourself.
After completing my engineering degree at University of Mauritius graduating, I was presented with several options for my professional path, with paths as diverse as the automobile and textile industry. Out of the blue, I got an offer from a start-up medical device company, who at the time was being implemented in Mauritius…the rest is history!
An inspiring story how you started and reached to where you are today.
Post my graduation I had the opportunity to work with seasoned engineers during a 1-year internship and this gave me a wealth of insight about engineering challenges & values.
Usually we say that our first job chooses us and anything else becomes a matter of choice. After my internship I had the privilege to opt for an exciting area to start my professional journey. My instinct lead me to a start-up environment in the completely new medical device sector in Mauritius, at a company called Natec Medical.
I was hired as a Production Engineer and then moved on to become the Production Manager. A start-up environment being dynamic, Natec was led by an even more dynamic entrepreneur. As the company needs and focus evolved with time, I had the opportunity to grow and move in different roles; from Production, to Quality Control, R&D, Engineering and then to Operations. Since the last two years, here I am as the Technical Marketing Director, contributing to implement the vision of Natec – to be an international leader in the world of medical devices.
What motivates you in your everyday life?
My family and my values. Being able to live my values on a daily basis is the best thing that can happen to any human being.
Who is your mentor / source of inspiration?
There are a few persons at different stages of my life – Firstly my father, who has been my pillar. Secondly my high school principal who instilled life lessons and many values in me. Thirdly Sir Alex Ferguson, who is an exemplary leader for creating different world class Manchester United teams for 26 years (I recommend everyone to read the book ‘leading’). Fourthly Maharishi Yogi & Paramhansa Yogananda for their teachings on Self-Consciousness & Self-Realization. Last but not least, the one who is still ‘biologically 32 years old’ (the person will know 😊) he always believed in me and offered me the opportunity to grow.
What are your Hobbies?
Football, music, reading autobiography books & creating toys.
What’s your motto / most inspirational quote?
It’s all about belief.
When it’s all over, how do you want to be remembered? (What impact do you wish to have at Natec also towards your personal aspirations)
I would like to be remembered as part of the team who started it.
“In one word, describe yourself.”
