In order to fuel its growth strategy in India’s expanding market, international HR consultancy Elixir Consulting has appointed a new Executive Director for India. Maya Nair has over a decade of professional experience in the advisory world, and will take charge of the Elixir business vertical. 

Nair holds a degree in Labour Laws as well as an MBA in Human Resources from the University of Kolkata. She began her professional career in the field of HR, joining the Manaksia Group in Kolkata as an HR Executive, where she not only helped with policy formulation but also participated in HR awareness sessions.

This will be her second stint at Elixir Consulting, the first coming in 2003 when she joined the firm as an Associate Director in the Web Solutions department. Over her six years at the firm, Nair focused on business development activities including market research, development of corporate clientele and customised strategy formulation.

Since 2013, Nair has been engaged at global IT giant IBM, where she has ascended to the position of Social Media and Agile Leader. She engaged in strategy formulation at IBM as well, with the specific objective of ensuring a reflective and successful recruitment process at the firm.

Over the course of her career, Nair’s expertise has evolved beyond HR to incorporate social media strategy, client servicing and sourcing, planning for talent acquisition and leadership among several others. Fluent in Japanese, she also possesses the skills to reach out to key allies east of the Indian market.

She now joins Elixir again in the capacity of Executive Director for India – a market which is on a rapid growth trajectory, but has demonstrated shortcomings in the domain of concrete HR policy. Amid a changing workforce, talent management is becoming of essence for Indian firms, particularly as the profile of skills required is evolving at an increasing rate.

Commenting on her appointment, Country Manager for the GI Group in India, Marcos Segador Arrebola said, “We are pleased to have Maya join our team to take forward our next growth chapter. As we continue to grow in the market, Maya’s strong track record in leading growth businesses and her deep market experience will bolster our efforts in India.”

Nair herself added, “Globally GI Group has rapidly grown in past few years. In India, my focus would be to drive the same thought leadership for an important segment that is Elixir Consulting. I am excited to work with the team to deliver more value to our customers.”
