In his new role, Jagdev will lead Xynteo’s Industrial Goods and Natural Resources industry verticals with a focus on sectoral decarbonisation, energy transition and circularity.

By helping historically hard-to-abate sectors contribute towards building a sustainable world Xynteo’s mission to reinvent growth has a bright future. I am excited to be part of Xynteo’s impact in India.”
