Elephant Strategy + Design has elevated Ravi Kabara to the position of president. Prior to the elevation, he was vice president - business and programme development.
Kabara had joined Elephant in 2008 to look after business development, prior to which he spent 13 years at Bajaj Auto, in the company's sales and marketing functions.
Commenting on his new role, Kabara said, “My aim is to achieve higher levels of growth from meaningful work. I will focus on expanding the reach of the Elephant brand and augment the contribution of strategic design across client’s business needs. I will also be responsible for ensuring that quality of delivery, teams and operations remain excellent.”
Ashwini Deshpande, founder director, Elephant, added, “Ravi brought a good balance of professionalism and business understanding at Elephant without affecting the intrinsic passion and free thinking that this profession requires. It seemed like the right time to entrust him with greater responsibility that would leave the founders with more time to mentor teams and explore newer ways of achieving innovation.”
