Global executive search firm DHR International is pleased to announce that Vikram Chhachhi has joined the firm as Partner in the Consumer and Retail practice groups. He will be based in the company’s Mumbai office. This marks Chhachhi’s return to the firm where, previously, he was an Executive Vice President.
Chhachhi is an accomplished leadership and management advisor with over 20 years’ consulting experience. His client work spans across the consumer, media, entertainment, digital, consumer technology, retail, gaming, private equity portfolios, and sports sectors. Chhachhi also has substantial experience in working with diversified conglomerates, business houses, and key financial sponsors. His experience is represented across the Board and C-Suite, as well as leaders for strategic business functions such as diversity, finance, legal, regulatory and government affairs, and strategy and transformation. This has led to a wide array of clients, ranging from start-ups and Indian businesses to global organizations.
“I am very excited to be returning to DHR. The firm has a superb caliber of Partners, a high degree of collaboration, depth of relevant experience, and comprehensive solutions across the leadership landscape,” Chhachhi said. “I look forward to delivering top-drawer leadership talent solutions that will drive enterprise-wide transformations for sustained growth through strong learning agility and inclusiveness.”
Chhachhi is especially adept at working with client stakeholders and financial sponsors from the promoter and private investor groups, helping them strategize, structure, and build out their professional management teams. As a trained assessor of leaders, he combines technology-driven, cutting-edge psychometric data with his deep insight to support clients in addressing the core issues related to future leaders: how they will lead and how they will align culturally.
In his most recent role, Chhachhi was a key member of the global Consumer Markets practice at Heidrick & Struggles. Before moving to leadership consulting and executive search, he was a Senior Editor with Business Today, where he covered and wrote extensively on the technology, telco, and automotive sectors. Chhachhi was widely acknowledged and awarded for his investigative reporting on the telecommunications industry in the mid-1990s when the sector was being deregulated in India.
Chhachhi graduated with a degree in computer science from St. Stephen’s College, University of Delhi, and has an advanced executive accreditation from Harvard Business School.
