This prestigious list focuses on UK-based individuals in public life, business, professional services, education, arts and culture who are making a significant impact on the UK India corridor.
Chandru has been singled out for his enthusiasm and maintaining a strong focus on attracting and supporting businesses from the Indian SME sector to do business in the UK. He is an experienced cross-border international trade and investment specialist, having played a crucial role in transactions between India, Scandinavia, Australia and the UK for over 15 years. Before joining Kingston Smith, Chandru was in India, working in various techno-commercial roles for Austrade at the Australian High Commission, Finpro at the Finnish Embassy, a global semiconductor major ST Microelectronics and a Scandinavian Consulting firm.
Chandru comments: “I’m delighted to be named in the Top 100. I have a real passion for further growing the relationship between the UK and India. Although Brexit has generated some uncertainty, I look at it as a window of opportunity to take UK India business relations to the next level and make it a truly winning partnership, something we are strongly committed to at Kingston Smith.”
