MUMBAI, INDIA—October 17, 2019—The Bridgespan Group is pleased to announce that Sudarshan (Sudy) Sampathkumar, formerly of Bain & Company, has joined Bridgespan’s Mumbai office as a Partner.
Sampathkumar has over 30 years of consulting experience and serves on the advisory board of Sneha Mumbai, a nonprofit organization committed to breaking the cycle of poor health among vulnerable women and children. He is also an independent director on the board of an NBFC and previously served as a board member and treasurer of a major international school.
Sampathkumar led the Performance Improvement practice of Bain India, where he spent over ten years as a partner. He is a graduate of the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore and has an MBA from the Indian Institute of Management.
An expert in strategy, performance improvement, and organizational consulting across a wide range of sectors, Sampathkumar said, “After a long career in the private sector, I hope to bring my advisory, strategy, and implementation experience to the nonprofit space.”
Sampathkumar said he has always felt strongly about the critical issues that Bridgespan’s work seeks to address, “I grew up in a middle class family and education was what enabled us to advance in life. I hope that every child should get the opportunity to succeed in life and not be constrained by education, health, poverty, or other societal impediments.”
