PROFILE

https://www.cmtevents.com/EVENTDATAS/190818/speakers/BharatAgarwal.jpg

Bharat is a Supply Chain professional from India and has been associated with Asian Paints Limited for 6 years and thereafter with Asian Paints PPG Pvt Ltd for 4 years. Having completed his MBA from one of India’s premier Business Schools, he joined Asian Paints Limited as a management trainee almost a decade back. Over these 10 years he has worked in various supply chain verticals and created a well-diversified profile which includes handling warehouse operations and plant planning at one of the most automated paint manufacturing facilities in India, thereafter working with the Information Technology group to bring improvements in manufacturing processes. Bharat has for the past few years been leading Sourcing, Procurement & Vendor Development and has played a key role in helping keep the industrial business profitable amid inflationary market conditions.

 

In his ten years, he has experienced working in an organization which enjoys leadership position in the Indian household coatings market as well as a completely different domain of industrial coatings with the challenges of a competitive, non-leadership, B2B business. Along with supply chain, Bharat also leads the servicing of ‘key customers’ of the industrial coatings business, which gives him a unique on-the-ground exposure to ensure continued business growth. He lives in Mumbai, India with his wife and son. He is an avid internet buff and enjoys travelling, playing cricket and discussing politics.
