She then completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Management Studies at Jai Hind College, Mumbai. Her activities and societies included Event Management – Head of Department (HoD), College Authority for the college festival Talaash (2015).
Her involvement in activities and societies across her schooling and college life is just a tiny precursor to her passion and commitment to her career in Marketing and Offline Growth.
After completing her education, Iteeshree joined Citi as an Information Research Analyst (M&A). She worked in data research. Then she worked at Sportex. Asia, as the Head of Marketing. She also worked across industries at companies such as Airblack as an Associate or Operations Coordinator at Rajsun Paints.
Iteeshree is a dynamic and committed worker who delivers her best at work. Her passion for strategies to grow businesses attracted her to her job at Hirect. She has worked in finance, travel, fitness, healthcare, and retail for five years. She is knowledgeable in change management, company development, continuous operational improvement, and customer service.
At Hirect, she is the kind of leader everyone wants and needs while constantly pushing her team to do better. She didn’t come with the experience but learned everything from scratch. Currently, she is the Manager of Growth at Hirect, where she works on expanding the Hirect App across India. She also manages a team which has produced more leaders for Hirect.
She was one of the first to join the offline team, and they started off from Gurgaon. After a few weeks of her being the individual contributor, Hirect expanded the team, and they were able to run Hirect’s pilot model of offline sales in Gurgaon successfully. Hirect always conducts a lot of events there. In the same course of time, she was able to start other two markets, Delhi and Noida, enabling Hirect to cover the entire Delhi NCR region in 21/2 to 3 months.
Then came the challenge of expanding the market, and Hirect came to Bangalore and Pune. Iteeshree has developed herself into a leader who manages 4 to 5 cities across Pan India in a few months. That’s how she has contributed to the Growth Trajectory of Hirect. Also, she and her team are very connected to the overall work and the vision of Hirect. There were times when the team had to pivot from offline to Linkedin, and the team hardly took one week to learn the entire process, and they were able to pivot to the learning process.
Here is the message from her team.
“It has been an amazing experience working with Itee. She is an amazing person. She’s so good at her work and has given me a lot of guidance. She is someone who makes the workspace fun and indulging. “- Archit Gupta, Assistant Business Development Manager.
