PeopleStrong, enterprise work and HR tech brand, has appointed former CEO, Aon Hewitt, Sandeep Chaudhary, as president and member of the board. This appointment is part of PeopleStrong’s effort to invest and drive accelerated growth in India and across Asia. Chaudhary makes this shift after a 17-year long tenure at Aon Hewitt.
Pankaj Bansal, Co-Founder and CEO, PeopleStrong, shared, “Sandeep’s ability to deliver growth with a large-scale impact, his customer-centric and inclusive approach, makes him a great addition to PeopleStrong. Supporting our growth ambition, Sandeep will also help us attract and build a world-class team.”
Chaudhary is known for a series of acquisitions, divestitures, and new business incubation, that transformed Aon Hewitt into a dominant market leadership position across India and emerging markets. He is a thought leader in the space of human capital and an advisor to many notable business houses. After leaving Aon Hewitt earlier this year Chaudhary has been working as an advisor to several private equity-backed businesses on their talent and organisation issues and special situations, such as mergers and acquisitions, pre-IPO, emerging market expansion, and so on.
Speaking on the occasion, Chaudhary himself express his excitement thus, “I am very impressed with PeopleStrong’s products suite, team capability, and its culture. HR Tech Market in Asia is at an interesting cusp as the conversation shifts from HR to ‘Work’ and employees to ‘Workers’, PeopleStrong is best positioned to lead this transition in the emerging world. It is an exciting time to be part of this journey, with a brand and team that has time and again led innovation in this space. I am thrilled to be a part of it.”
According to Renuka Ramnath, chairperson, PeopleStrong and founder MD and CEO, Multiples, “We are happy to have Sandeep on board as we work towards creating the first global work tech brand from India. Sandeep’s prior experience of establishing global brands would accelerate this journey, and we are excited to have him join our strong leadership team”.
