Associate Director, Corporate Operations Group
I manage the Technology Operations function for Macquarie’s Gurgaon Shared Service Centre. My responsibilities are to ensure Macquarie businesses across the globe get stable and efficient information technology platforms.
Macquarie has provided me with ample opportunity and empowerment to drive, decide and shape my career. I started by leading a small team that worked on projects in the regulatory reporting space. Now I lead an important function supporting multiple business lines, with the continuous opportunity to add value and initiate change.
I firmly believe the best form of gratitude is to ‘pay it forward’. Last winter, I ran an initiative with two Macquarie colleagues, giving warm blankets to homeless people living on the streets of Delhi.
Technology Risk Manager, Corporate Operations Group
With technology increasingly tied to critical business processes, a technology failure can have a big impact on an organisation. As a Technology Risk Manager at the Gurgaon centre, I ensure that the teams based here are following all the risk management principles laid out in the Macquarie-wide framework.
I started with Macquarie as the aligned risk manager for a particular team. Now I am responsible for all the teams within this centre. I also contribute to global projects across Macquarie, working with technology and business teams. Our goal is to ensure Macquarie has a risk management program that enables us to pursue strategic business objectives and satisfy regulatory compliance requirements.
I see a long and rewarding future with Macquarie. I am able to learn new things and have a feeling of accomplishment every day. When I can understand how I am making a positive contribution to an organisation, I am inspired to do more and give my best.
Associate Director, Financial Management Group
I was attracted to Macquarie for the opportunity to learn new skills and evolve my career in the finance team of a global investment bank. I have just reached the five-year mark here and have been very happy and fulfilled in that journey. I enjoy working with skilled professionals with strong work ethics.
As the team lead for the company’s Legal Entity Control Service, my team and I support Macquarie’s subsidiaries by providing advice on reporting and control functions.
The most rewarding aspect of my role is managing and developing talent. While the culture here is about taking charge of your own career, we take pride in giving team members the support and guidance they need along the way.
Manager, Risk Management Group
I am responsible for setting up and managing the Risk Management Group credit function at Gurgaon. We support Macquarie businesses globally in credit operations, annual reviews and credit reporting. We also act as experts for any credit data requirements.
I was attracted to Macquarie as an employer due to its excellent reputation, strong risk management principles and its culture of freedom combined with accountability. This allows employees to think, perform and realise their potential.
My greatest challenge has been leading new team members as we set up the first risk function at Gurgaon. I always focus on gaining new knowledge and skills and never stop believing in my own and my team’s capabilities.
I value working with highly talented people who promote a friendly and supportive work culture. This has enabled me to explore career paths across a range of business groups and functions within the company.
My advice to people looking to join Macquarie is to connect with colleagues and support your team members because building good relationships is the ultimate reward in the long run. Of course it’s important to work hard but you also need to enjoy your work.
Division Director, Corporate Operations Group
I lead the Technology function in India across our Mumbai and Gurgaon offices. As the lead, I am responsible for application management services, local vendor relationships, people management and technology-related risk.
I was attracted to Macquarie as it is adaptable and not constrained by traditional ways of thinking and operating. When an opportunity or idea has merit we can quickly assess and implement those opportunities with due attention to risks. I have seen several innovative ideas and products launched over the years. We also have an open and supportive environment that allows our staff to thrive and succeed.
As Macquarie has grown and evolved, the variety of roles and opportunities for me has been fantastic. Each role has been exciting and enriching in its own way with something to learn and to contribute to business success. Over the years I have also been able to build a good internal network across various groups and divisions.
In developing career goals, I would encourage others to think long term and recognise that you have joined an organisation with a long, successful history. If you build a good personal brand and reputation and be a valuable team player, there will be career opportunities beyond the immediate team or role you have been hired for.
Assistant Manager, Corporate Operations Group
As part of the Business Intelligence MicroStrategy team, my role is to provide application level support to our worldwide user base accessing the system. As a team we are focused on ensuring high standards in service and a structured, consistent approach to make certain that work requests and issues are appropriately handled and timely delivered.
For me personally, our local leadership is very approachable and managers are supportive. This inspires me to work hard and achieve.
Assistant Vice President, Corporate Operations Group
I joined Macquarie due to its corporate culture and its long history of growth.
The most rewarding aspect of my career at Macquarie is you are heard by senior management and your growth is in your hands. I enjoy providing direct support to senior management in a way that really makes a difference. The contribution I make informs their decisions which can influence the overall success of the business.
Macquarie has given me excellent learning and growth opportunities, which has helped me develop my technical and non-technical skills.
Vice President, Financial Management Group
I work in the Group Regulatory Reporting team in Finance. My role involves balance sheet, statistical and liquidity reporting to APRA for Macquarie Bank Limited.
For me, the first and foremost reason for joining Macquarie was and is its good reputation. I joined our Gurgaon office during its initial growth phase, and was excited by the opportunity for me to grow personally and professionally. Macquarie has provided me with varied exposure and opportunities to grow as a well-rounded professional.
