N. SURYANARAYANAN – SENIOR ADVISOR
Suri has over 35 years of experience in the accounts, secretarial, and compliance functions, his passion being providing leadership during growth-related transitions. He has successfully represented his organizations before regulators and tax authorities in several matters and been instrumental in obtaining timely approvals and rulings based on a technical interpretation of regulations and tax laws, direct and indirect.
Beginning his career with ACC Limited, he was associated with the L&T Group for over 26 years, last heading the Secretarial & Compliance functions of their financial services business; he has provided leadership to the accounts, secretarial & compliance functions during the IPO and has subsequently handled regulatory interaction during their growth phase. He has also earlier headed the Operations, Information Technology, and Internal Audit functions for this business. Amongst the aspects that he has found interesting in his career has been organizing board meetings and interaction with internal and external directors, both in and off the board room, over 22 years.
Suri enjoys external advocacy roles, especially when the window for presenting one’s case is very narrow and amongst his more memorable stints was as Chief Executive of a joint venture between L&T and a German major, where he had to continuously interact with customers, both domestic and global, and government authorities.
He is a self-confessed bibliophile, with reading interests spanning a wide array of subjects and relishes being a faculty/panel speaker in programs covering professional and other topics.
He is a Chartered Accountant, Cost Accountant, and Company Secretary and holds a Bachelor’s degree in General Law.
