11 Questions with Former CEO of KPMG India Richard Rekhy on Leadership, Criticism & Networking

Hi, I am Richard Rekhy, a Chartered Accountant who dared to dream big.

I started my career in 1983 at a mid-sized firm. Over the years I developed entrepreneurial abilities and later moved to a larger firm where I transformed into a leader and eventually became the CEO at KPMG, India from 2012 until 2017.

Did all of this come about easily to me? Not at all, however, the challenges and adversities I faced only strengthened my resolve to make it big.

Here is a fireside chat with The Finance Story on Leadership and my challenges.
