London-based management consultancy L.E.K. Consulting has expanded its leadership team with the appointment of 15 new partners across its global footprint. Jitin Sethi, a former Vice President at The Parthenon Group is among those who have been elevated within the organisation.

Sethi has been at L.E.K. as a Principal since January last year, and has been the Managing Director since December. As an expert in the education sector, he has been engaged in this domain at L.E.K., working intermittently with operators and investors as well as non-profit educational institutions.

He holds a degree in engineering from Ambedkar University with a specialisation in Computer Science, following which he completed an MBA from the Indian School of Business. He specialised in Management, Finance and Marketing during his MBA, and was active in the consulting domain.

Professionally, Sethi began his career as a Graduate Engineer Trainee at Havell’s, where he remained for just under a year. He then moved to Indian IT giant Infosys, where he spent half a decade and made his way up to the position of Project Manager, operating alternatively in India and the US.

He worked as a Consultant at ZS Associates for nearly two years, following which he joined EY’s strategy wing Parthenon, where he spent nearly seven years. At Parthenon, he began at the Managerial level and eventually ascended to the position of Vice President. He remained at Parthenon till November 2017 before joining L.E.K. two months later. 

Sethi is a member of L.E.K.’s Global Education practice, which he will now engage with at Partner level. Kaushik Mohan is another Indian-origin executive at L.E.K to be promoted to Partner. Mohan is also a part of the education practice, but he is based out of Singapore, while Sethi is based out of Mumbai. 

The 15 new partners – 14 of which are promotions while one is a new recruit – represent a desire for L.E.K. to bolster its expertise in nearly every sector, and across every market. Alongside Singapore and Mumbai, Partners have been added in Boston, London, Paris, San Francisco and other offices. In India, L.E.K.'s efforts to expand are aimed at capitalising on the rapidly expanding management consultancy market

Commenting on the drive, Global Managing Partner at L.E.K.

We congratulate them and value their expertise as we broaden our capabilities and drive increased demand for our services across a diverse range of businesses and industry sectors worldwide.”
