Mehul was born in India. He spent his childhood in India and Africa, and changed schools seven times before attending high school. After studying for a degree in Nautical Sciences, Mehul started his career with Chevron before moving to the Danish conglomerate A. P. Moller - Maersk. He spent five years in Copenhagen working in a variety of operations, strategy and finance roles within the tanker and logistics division. He was also a part of the company leadership acceleration programme. Very keen to return to Africa to obtain some extensive operations experience, Mehul took on the role of Country Manager / Chief Commercial Officer for Maersk's logistics division in East Africa - a phenomenal experience. London Business School was an obvious choice due to the diversity of its student body and the global experience that London offers. Outside of work, Mehul loves adventure activities such as scuba diving, hiking, mountain climbing and cycling. Whilst at London Business School, Mehul has taken on executive roles in the Africa club, Energy Summit and Expedition club.
