Aon Consulting India CEO to step down after half a decade at the helm

23 November 2018

Having led the Aon Consulting’s India practice for nearly half a decade, CEO of the firm Sandeep Chaudhary has announced his decision to make his exit from Aon. He will step down effective from the end of January next year, and will work on ensuring a smooth transition process in the meantime.

Since joining Aon Consulting 17 years ago, Sandeep Chaudhary has gradually moved up the ranks at the firm. He began as a Senior Consultant and Industry Leader, a position that he occupied for nearly three years before he was promoted to Principal and Practice Leader for Performance & Rewards for the regions of India and the Middle East.

After six years as a Principal, Chaudhary was promoted to Partner within the Performance & Rewards division of the firm, this time for the entire Asia Pacific Region. In 2014, after over three years as a Partner at the firm, Chaudhary was appointed as CEO of Aon Consulting for its India practice.

During his time at Aon, Chaudhary has reportedly recorded a number of substantial achievements, including the establishment and subsequent incubation of a number of new business vertical, as well as the acquisition of a technology assessment startup by the name of CoCubes.

Academically, Chaudhary holds a Masters in Labour Law and Labour Welfare from Symbiosis International University, as well as a Post Graduate Diploma in Management with a specialisation in Human Resources from the Symbiosis Institute of Management Studies.

He began is professional career at Amrop as a Cosultant, following which he spent a year as a Senior Consultant at Willis Towers Watson. Chaudhary now hopes to pursue other professional opportunites that will align more directly with his personal interests and ambitions.

Chaudhary steps down effective from the end of January next year. In the interim period, he is expected to work with his team to develop a strategic “transition plan.” The transition comes amid expansion plans for Aon, as a growing consumer class in India drives up the propensity to spend on wealth management services. Aon is among several wealth advisory firms to be ramping up investment in the country.

On Chaudhary’s departure, as statement from the firm read, “ He was with the firm for 17 years. He was a key part of the India growth story of Aon’s India consulting business. He was appointed CEO at the start of 2014. In his tenure, Aon witnessed the rapid growth of the consulting business.”

Nitesh Sahay, managing director and associate partner at Truesight Consulting, has relocated to the UK to support Marketscience founder Peter Cain with expanding the firm’s footprint in Europe. Sahay will work with UK-based clients as well as those in India.

New York-based Truesight Consulting was established in 2017 and launched in India in only February last year under Nitesh Sahay, who was appointed the firm’s Managing Director in the country. The New Delhi practice was established as a hub for the firm’s operations across Asia.

Sahay is a graduate in Economics from Delhi University as well as Jawaharlal Nehru University, and has worked at a number of high profile firms throughout his career, which spans nearly two decades. He began his career in economic research, before joining GE Capita International as a Business Analyst.

He has been a Researcher and a Project Manager at Universite Laval in Canada, following which he worked for a year as a Senior Economist at Datamonitor. His first managerial position came during a three-year spell at Symphony Marketing Solutions, following which he joined Ninah Consulting.Nitesh Sahay relocates to Marketscience Truesights London office spot

Over nearly a decade at Ninah, Sahay ascended to the position of Regional Director for the Asia Pacific Region, during the period becoming acquainted with David Dixon and Sebastian Shapiro, who later broke off to established Truesight Consulting in 2017. They later brought Sahay on board.

The firm has since been expanding gradually, and entered a strategic partnership with London-based marketing consultancy Marketscience Consulting last year. The firm specialises in econometric modeling and statistical analysis to offer customised solutions to clients across various sectors.

Sahay has now been relocated from the New Delhi office to the London office, where he joins founder of Marketscience Peter Cain in his efforts in innovative product development. “Sahay’s move to London speaks a lot about the way we are growing and what we want to achieve as a company,” said David Dixon.

Sahay himself added, “Not only are we bringing transparency to black-box analytics, but we’re training clients and helping them successfully integrate marketing analytics software and modeling in-house. We don’t just give our clients the best tools to work with, we also help them use and integrate that tool smoothly and effectively to ensure success.”
