Featured in The Economic Times-Spencer Stuart ’40 under 40′ listing of India’s hottest young executives. This is what Economic Times has to Say about Ferose VR
Position: SVP, Globalisation Services, SAP
Education: NIT, Warangal, Bachelor’s, Computer Science and Engg.
Previous Jobs: Developer (HRMS), Ramco Systems
Claim to Fame: At 33, was the first non-German MD of SAP Labs
Management mantra: ‘ Execution eats strategy for breakfast’; ‘Intention has infinite organising capacity’; ‘Trust produces speed’.
Biggest career challenge: Many. But the 2 years I spent as an EA to the Board Member of SAP was the toughest. It was also the one where I learnt the most.
Inspirations: May sound cliched, but no one inspires me more than Mahatma Gandhi. What amazes me is his foresight and a lot of his thoughts were way ahead of its time but are still relevant.
Life@50: Hopefully by 50, I would have contributed to making the world a much better place.
- Very forgetful and absent-minded – I have forgotten everything from laptops, phones, passport, keys….I once even forgot my wife and son at the airport!
- Voracious reader – reads magazine backwards (from last page to first)
- Wacky sense of humor – takes nothing seriously except work! Most importantly, I never take myself seriously at all!
- I am a Bengali by heart, Keralite by birth & a Marathi by marriage!
