Q. How would you define your leadership style?
A. My leadership style is all about accountability. I believe in getting the job done irrespective of the number of hours one spends in the office. It’s not about dictating and making people work, but about motivating them to do their job.
Q. Overall, what is the road ahead for NetApp?
A. We are working towards being the data authority in the hybrid cloud. We want to be known as the experts in data. Secondly, we want to help our customers change the world with data. In India, we also have our only start-up accelerator, the NetApp Excellerator, where we house and mentor data-driven start-ups to create innovative solutions that are market-ready. We are planning to expand that as well.
