Living our values

“My grandparents had their lives up-ended numerous times through World War II, the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution; every time, they persevered and built their lives anew. A similar story can be told of my parents in their 20s. My family showed me that the willpower and courage to persist through setbacks and come back even stronger are indispensable to long-term viability and success. Thus, the value of ‘having impact through insight and tenacity’ is dear to my heart.”

Outside the office, Rohan takes very good care of his pet cat and runs a social initiative aimed at reducing under-employment of international newcomers.
