Ravi Asawa

CFO, NDTV Ethnic Retail

Ravi Asawa is a stickler for playing with a straight bat and comes with immense experience across multiple knowledge domains like media, IT services and manufacturing industries.

With extensive experience in corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, treasury, corporate governance and financial processes, Ravi has been the strategic backbone of NDTV’s Group Finance team for the last five years.

Besides a 17-year long proven track record of creative problem solving, his core strengths include the ability to identify and validate key business requirements and strategies, and lead cross-functional financial processes.

The love for number crunching led him to master the ‘art’ of cost accounting, chartered accounting and applicable laws and regulations (company secretary). And he’s taken great pride in sharing this wealth of knowledge with the various teams that he has been closely associated with.

Ravi is an avid golfer, enjoys driving, humming (not singing) old songs and loves to spoil his 11-year-old son. His favorite line, (borrowed from Ratan Tata and edited by him), “I don’t always make the right decisions. I take decisions and then work towards making them right”.
