Pramath Sinha

Pramath Sinha was the dean of ISB from June 2001 to June 2002. He took a year off from McKinsey and Company to be the founding dean of the ISB.
His rich experience over the years – across academia, consulting, education and business – has given him a rare insight on running organisations and different operating environments. He spent 12 years with McKinsey as a partner.  During his McKinsey tenure, he assisted both public and private sector clients in a diverse set of industries on issues relating to business strategy and performance improvement in North America and Asia.  After starting his career in the North American Practice, he moved to India in 1997 and helped build and grow the Indian Practice.  He led McKinsey India’s telecom, IT, and media practices as well as its organisation practice, where he focused on issues of transformation and leadership.

Sinha has assisted several blue-chip Indian companies in transforming their existing organisations to world-class levels. He has worked closely with several MNCs in overcoming their organisational and leadership challenges whilst setting up world-class operations in India. Before founding 9.9 Media last year, he was the MD & CEO of ABP Private Limited, one of India’s most prominent and diversified media conglomerates.

He received M S E and PhD degrees in mechanical engineering and applied mechanics from the University of Pennsylvania and a BTech in metallurgical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur.
