“Kotak creates professional entrepreneurs,” Makarand Khatavkar

An alumnus of the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, and an accredited coach (ACC) recognised by the International Coach Federation, Makarand Khatavkar, group head–human resources, Kotak Mahindra Bank, has built HR teams from scratch, more than once.
