The RK-TCS Story

If there is one thing that defines me, it is my need to bring order to chaos. The more complex the chaos, the more the challenge intrigues me and pushes me to find new and innovative ways to bring structure and organization to the environment. As a student of physics and engineering, science and technology is my foundation. Human behavior fascinates me as I feel like every person I meet in life teaches me something I didn’t know before.

I didn’t fall into the consulting profession by accident. It was a personality test done many years ago, which led me to explore this profession and realize it was right for me. I’ve done many roles and transitioned my career numerous times, covering a number of disciplines, but I’ve felt most alive when doing consulting work, helping my clients achieve greater success than they could have achieved without me.

I was fortunate to have a long list of mentors throughout my career who helped me hone my skills and encouraged me to achieve my potential. So I have always believed in ‘paying it back’ by mentoring others – be it through a coffee chat, a phone conversations, or an email exchange, I will always make time for those who need my help and guidance to achieve their goals.

These experiences paved the way for the launch of RK-TCS. I continue to be passionate about helping clients achieve their business objectives. As more and more consultants approached me with the desire to be part of my team and clients saw the value I can bring to them with a cohesive team, the vision for RK-TCS started to materialize.

I’m excited to continue on the consulting journey with RK-TCS, with the support of a strong management team and a roster of passionate and highly skilled consultants, ready to serve our clients needs.
