Kunal Wadhwani
Group Head of Human Resources at Choithrams Group


Kunal has over 18 years' experience in managing HR - Operations, predominantly in Retail, ITES & BFS Industry, within Middle East & India.

His passion and focus has enabled a switch in his organizations culture from a hierarchical “command and control” environment, to one which enables “trusted teams” to take accountability for customer advocacy. Critical to this was developing a climate where employees feel engaged and energized.

As the Group Head of Human Resources, Kunal caters to needs of over 4300 employees in the Middle East Region. His creativity in solving problems not only saves the company considerable expense and time, but also strengthens relationships with external agencies and organizations. He has launched performance driven management processes, merit pay reviews and also introduced compensation & grading schemes that support organizational goals.

Apart from spending time with family when he is free, Kunal also believes in investing time with students, across various universities & management schools, to develop their skills in concepts of leadership & conflict management.
