“Life is designed such that opportunities don’t fall into one’s lap; you create them and make the most of them.“
Priya believes in carving out her own path and creating opportunities rather than waiting for them. She is a Senior Associate, Finance, at WestBridge Capital, Bangalore, where she is involved in investor reporting. In her own words, “Continuously focusing on creating better reporting and automating the processes make the work interesting for me at WestBridge.”
Priya is passionate about her line of work. She strongly maintains that keeping fair books of accounts increases the stakeholders’ confidence in the functioning of the business and supports decision making. She feels that elevating the finance team to an integral part of the business has the two-fold benefit of aiding the smooth functioning of operations and propelling the company forward in the right direction. She thinks books of accounts throw light not just on the company’s journey thus far, but also its current trajectory and the path ahead.
Priya is a Chartered Accountant and holds a Bachelor of Commerce (Honors) degree from North Bengal University. Before her WestBridge innings, she was with Supr Daily (a Swiggy Group initiative) as a Senior Manager in their Finance Controllership team. Here, she gained extensive experience in management reporting, audit, compliance, and finance automation projects. Prior to her Supr Daily stint, Priya was associated with Ernst & Young’s statutory audit department where she worked with clients from diverse backgrounds that included startups and the manufacturing sector.
