How Devesh is building a better working world

“My endeavor has always been to provide innovative solutions matching the needs of clients with a long-term horizon.

Going beyond the CFO’s traditional reporting and a “value-protector” mindset, I help businesses improve stakeholder management and shift to a “value-creator” mindset. That’s how I contribute to building a better working world.”
