Aparna C

Vice President HR, Aknamed

With over 20 years of experience in human resources and business leadership, I have successfully managed and transformed diverse organizations across various industries, including healthcare, B2B, supply chain management, technology, and services.

As the Vice President of HR at Aknamed, a leading provider of medical supplies and solutions, I lead the HR strategy and operations for the group of companies, spanning across India. My core competencies are rooted in driving organizational effectiveness and delivering tangible results. I have a proven track record of designing and implementing comprehensive human resource policies, programs, and services that align with the business goals and values.

I have also spearheaded the integration of culture, processes, and systems for multiple mergers and acquisitions, creating a cohesive and high-performing organization.

Additionally, I have extensive experience in managing the profit and loss of the business unit, building capabilities and competencies through learning and development initiatives, and fostering strong relationships with key stakeholders and partners.

My professional ethos is based on the concept of metamorphosis, which means consistent actions have a stronger impact than occasional ones. I believe in the power of networking, genuineness, and positivity, and I always embrace challenges as opportunities to grow and excel.
