Vikram Chhachhi has been appointed as Partner in the Mumbai office at the executive search and leadership advisory firm DHR International headquartered out of Chicago. He will lead the firm's portfolio for consumer and retail, consumer tech, media, entertainment & sports clients for India. He will also continue to work closely with Indian business conglomerates, consumer tech, and private equity portfolios in the above sectors for India and key markets across Asia and globally.

The Harvard Business School alumnus had served his first stint at the company for four years between September 2009 and August 2013. Prior to DHR, Chhachhi was a consultant at Heidrick & Struggles for close to seven years.

Vikram Chhachhi is an experienced leadership and management advisor with over 20 years’ of experience in Consulting, based out of India’s commercial and financial capital, Mumbai. In his last role, he was a key member of the global Consumer Markets Practice at Heidrick & Struggles. Vikram’s body of client work spans across Consumer Goods, Media, Entertainment, OTT & Digital, Consumer Tech, Retail and the Gaming & Sports sectors. In addition, he also has substantial experience in working with Diversified conglomerates, business houses, and key financial sponsors – the Family Offices & Private Equity players. His experience is represented across the Board and C-Suite – CEOs, Divisional Chief Executives, Functional Officers, as well as leaders for strategic business functions such as Diversity, Financial Officers, Legal Counsels, Regulatory & Government Affairs, and Strategy & Transformation.

This has led to a wide array of clients, ranging from start-ups and Indian businesses, to global organisations. Chhachhi is particularly adept at working with client stakeholders and financial sponsors from either the promoter group or private investor group (e.g. private equity or institutional investors), helping them strategize, structure, and build out their professional management teams. In the current business environment, that has meant focusing on leaders for an increasingly complex VUCA world, who will drive enterprise-wide transformations for sustained growth through strong learning agility and inclusiveness. Being a trained assessor of leaders, he combines technology-driven cutting-edge psychometrics data, with his deep insights, to help clients address the core twin issues related to future leaders – how they will lead, and how they will align culturally.

Before moving to Consulting, Chhachhi was a Senior Editor with the leading business fortnightly, Business Today, where he covered and wrote extensively on the Technology, Telcos and Automotive sectors. He 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 the Harvard Business School, Cambridge (Massachusetts). He is passionate about sports, music, movies, technology (specifically ML & heuristics), writing, and the outdoors, and lives with his wife and daughter in suburban Mumbai.
