Aditya Kohli has joined Orient Electric as CHRO.
The former CHRO of Clix Capital is backed by over two decades of experience, during which he has worked in Singapore, India and London managing global teams.
An alumnus of Symbiosis Institute of Management Studies, this senior HR leader began his career with Hewitt Associates as a senior consultant in 1999. After about five years, in 2005, he found himself at Standard Chartered Bank, where he entered as head – resourcing, rewards and talent management.
By the time Kohli left Standard Chartered, after a successful nine and a half year-long stint, he was head – product delivery, performance, rewards and benefits. He was responsible for the end-to-end delivery of performance, reward and benefits products across the Bank’s geographic network.
His next stop was Bharti Airtel in 2014, where he joined as global head of total rewards, HR systems and analytics. A year and a half later, he was elevated to head – HR (core functions), leading the HR function for the engineering, networks, deployment, supply chain and L&R for Airtel. He was also responsible for driving talent strategy, and aligning the people agenda to deliver superior business results.
It was in 2018 that Kohli joined Clix Capital as chief human resource officer. There, he successfully built the culture and the human capital for the young and rapidly growing fin-tech startup, for over three years.
In his new assignment, Kohli will be based at Orient Electric’s head office in New Delhi. Through his LinkedIn post, Kohli expresses his delight at this opportunity to be “part of the CK Birla Group” and the fact that he is “excited about the huge growth and digital transformation agenda”.
