Career Path: Partner & Business Head, Macintel Solutions
Location: Kolkata, India

Northumbria University completed the circle in providing me with cutting edge leadership and problem solvinng skills and instilled the spirit of sales, marketing and business strategy via the course and the Professors. Post completion of MBA I was recruited by the Oberoi Group of Hotels as a Sales Executive which crafted my path and confidence in the field of Sales Management. Post 6 months, I was picked by Kohler Co. where I spent 5 years in developing the brand and the sales channel in East India. Finally Apple came calling and recruited me to set up the Large Format Retail and the General Trade business across East India. Samarth Mehta
