“Working onsite is perhaps the best possible way to build trust, openness and shared values. I truly enjoyed every moment working with the core team, senior management, client’s business partners and external consultants from all over the world. I hope this will add a lot to my professional development.”

Devarshi Mehta

“Onsite research at Taiwan helped me gain thorough insights and understand nitty-gritties about a rather difficult subject. The primary research also helped me improve communication skills. The project ensured that we utilize all the available platforms to deliver comprehensive and in-depth report to the client.”

John Minett
Director

“While based at New York, during my tenure at Aranca, I’ve had the good fortune to work with some of the world’s most interesting, multi-national corporations on a dizzying array of research initiatives. Aranca’s consistent excellence is characterized throughout by a ‘unity of purpose,’ and I’m proud to be a part of it all.”

Prateek Bhatia
Associate Vice President

“While working with diverse yet tightly coupled practices, Valuation and Transaction Advisory, I got an opportunity to enhance my knowledge by leveraging cross-practice project opportunities. For me to handle multiple end to end projects for valuations team and the chance to be a part of growing transaction practice, was a different and a great learning experience. This opportunity to be a part of cross-practice growth initiatives has helped me scale up my skillset.”

Siddharth Jaiswal

This move is making me test my mettle in greater and more dynamic roles within the company and is giving me a stage to further improve and develop new learnings."

“My understanding of the capital markets from the asset management point of view grew rapidly in Aranca by working for leading global asset managers. I also got the chance to explore cross functional skills in areas of training and development, content marketing, global media interaction and to support business development activities.”

Manpreet Singh
Senior Associate Director
Sales

"After 8 years in the Valuation Practice, I was looking for a change of experience. Interestingly, along with doing business valuations, I was also actively involved with sales team to grow our practice and identifying new business ideas to generate additional revenue streams. Later, I readily took up the opportunity of Business Development full time. It’s been a year into the new role, and I am happy to say that I was right in making the decision!"

Harveen Gandhi
Senior Associate Director
Sales

"When I joined Aranca, it was a new experience as I had no clue about this industry. I started with valuation sales and learned about 409A services. It’s been a good experience since then as I moved to different roles during my stint here. Currently, it involves a lot of interesting stuff starting from database responsibility to initiating calls to managing revenue pipeline of the sales department. It’s nice to develop such an organizational view."

“Aranca had supported me during a personal family emergency. I was provided work from home option which got extended to a period of more than five long years and the support I received from the entire system (Management/IT/HR/Admin and colleagues) helped me manage the situation back in my hometown. Not many firms will provide such support and I am ever grateful for this. Such gestures to support the employees during the times of personal crisis is truly unique.”

Sanjana Menon

Abhinav Sridhar
Senior Consultant
Business Research

“A while ago I was assigned to an operational consulting project. I was excited to take up the role given the tremendous business exposure that I would get from the project. It required me to have detailed discussions with various C-level executives to understand the nuances of various industries in which the client operated. This helped me develop my reasoning and analytical skills as I had to build my discussion with the business managers about potential operational inefficiencies.”

Sheldon Vaz
Senior Associate Director
Sales

“I have been fortunate to get a chance to work directly with the senior management, right from my initial days as an analyst. The overall experience has been immensely rich and the opportunities I have been exposed to may not have been possible otherwise. In this short time, I have been exposed to multiple facets of starting and scaling a business, managing all aspects from Accounts, HR and Admin/IT to Operations and Business Development.”

At Aranca, we stress a lot on creating and nurturing a learning-conducive and personal growth-friendly environment.

There has been something to learn in this firm every day and I do find it quite evident in my evolution as a professional.

"I was always very inclined to work for a young, innovative and flexible organization & management, where the environment is agile to new ideas and helps me to enhance my enterprising skills. Hence, Aranca became an exciting platform, and the very first learning I got was the humility at the top- management, which now has become a DNA of Aranca and makes it more endearing to serve our common ambitious pursuits."
