About me: Prior to joining LBS, Anant worked in the corporate finance domain with Motorola Mobility in the US, in primarily FP&A-related roles. As part of a rotational development programme at Motorola, Anant had the opportunity to work in three different finance roles in a short span of five years, allowing him to learn a great deal about different corporate finance functions within a global company. In his most recent role, he led the global FP&A reporting to the CFO.
Anant graduated with a dual degree in Finance and Information Systems and Technology from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in the US.
As someone who wants to continue to grow in the corporate finance domain and eventually attain his long-term goal of becoming a CFO, Anant joined LBS to advance his subject area knowledge, but also to develop crucial skills as a leader. LBS provides coaching, workshops, electives and networking opportunities that give finance professionals a platform to develop crucial skills to succeed as a leader in their field, emphasising both professional and personal growth.
In his spare time, Anant loves to play sports, especially golf.
