Siddharth Sirigeri (Sep, 2007 to Aug, 2012)
Designation: Director – Oils (Trading & Finance)
Siddharth was promoted from Manager – Trading and Business Operations to Director- Oils (Trading & Finance) in 2012. After completing his BE Electronics, Siddharth took the plunge and joined Shakti as it was an opportunity to learn about the various aspects and departments of a business rather than bias himself with a one-sided outlook. This move proved worth the while as today, Siddharth understands almost every facet there is to the enterprise and also suggests investment opportunities in allied areas like palm oil plantations, edible oil refinery or even wind energy.
Responsible majorly for International Broking, Trade Finance, Commodity & Foreign Exchange Trade and Risk Management of the Company, he makes sure the above arms of the company run smoothly and does all it takes to ensure that.
Anil Anant Bijitkar
For over 16 years now, Anil has been the financial backbone of Shakti Enterprises. From looking into accounting practices to overall financial policy he does it all. His sincerity comes at an added advantage while his practical approach allows him to make sure that financial systems are not just effective but also smooth. Anil views life as a continuous learning experience and continues, till date, to learn from his experience at Shakti.
Dinesh Prabhu M
Designation: Manager – Accounts
Since 2003, Dinesh has been the one point liason between suppliers and local buyers. Making sure both parties of a transaction go back satisfied and creating a win-win situation each time is a tall task, executed efficiently by the grace of Dinesh’s patience and uncanny knack of dealing with people. He also undertakes the very sensitive task of finalizing buyer’s accounts, again without leaving a buyer unsatisfied.
A curious mind, he is always trying to understand the unknown. He can be found indulging in this quest for knowledge, when not busy shuffling between the two sides of the spectrum at Shakti.
Suryakant Laxmanrao Ambarkar
Designation: Manager – Administration and Legal
Buildings fall without strong foundations. And organisations, without strong back-end operations. Holding the fort since 1995, is Suryakant who makes sure the administrative and legal frameworks function smoothly. With over 15 years of experience in the Edible Oil Industry, Suryakant now has an intricate understanding of the needs of the organisation and caters to them with a self-disciplined rigour. He is constantly innovating and looking for new ways to grow as an individual and spill over the effect to Shakti at large.
