Hi there !
My name is Sailesh Agrawal, born and raised in Calcutta.
I am an Engineer and an MBA by qualification and am currently working with a Danish MNC (Maersk - it's the biggest shipping line globally) in Kolkata as the Regional Key Account Manager. I shall be moving to Dubai within the same company as the Global Program Director by around September 2021.
I have spent the last 10 years away from home, studying/ working, living with friends or alone in different cities and have just recently moved back to my family home last year. I am currently living with family in Kolkata due to the pandemic but shall be moving to Dubai in 3-4 months.
I am a career focused person, and do plan to live overseas for a few years or maybe even permanently. So, would ideally prefer someone who is also willing to move abroad.
Having been raised in a joint family, my values remain the same. Although I have been living in different cities for the last few years, separate from my parents, but eventually I wish to live with them, whether in India or overseas.
I am looking for a partner who is well educated, but at the same time also understands and respects family values, someone who would be comfortable living with my family as well.
Personally, I would prefer my partner to be a working professional, as I believe that would be important for our thought processes to match. But whether she wants to work or not would totally be her decision.
On the personal front, I am fond of travelling, hiking, singing, swimming, board games, and a big time movie/ series buff.
I am self-aware and well-rounded person. Simple in my approach and fun at the same time, I am ambitious and driven to achieve my life goals. I am a people person and love being in the company of friends and family. In my time away from work, I enjoy watching plays, making pencil sketches and wood carving.
I have completed my B.Tech (& M. Tech, Dual Degree) from IIT Kanpur. Worked for a top-tier consulting company before receiving a Masters in Public Policy at Georgetown University, Washington DC. I have held several leadership positions at IIT Kanpur including Student President and was recognised for his stellar performance (Institute Leadership Award). At Georgetown, I worked with Nobel Laureate George Akerlof towards my masters thesis and other research topics. I have worked at the CEOs office at the World Bank in Washington DC, and recently moved to a role in Abu Dhabi (living in Dubai).
My son has a Bachelor's degree and he is employed in Private Sector as a Commercial Pilot currently working in Dubai. We come from an Upper middle class, Nuclear family background with Moderate values.
