business head in Hyderabad
hyderabad, andhra pradesh
?The role of Business Head for Andra Pradesh is fundamental for our growth in the state. He/she will be responsible for all of our in-state operations, including: overall profit and loss in the state, securing new sites for private academies, repairing existing buildings or constructing new ones, recruiting and training teachers, managing academy operations, developing new business models and opportunities in close collaboration with the government, and driving pupil numbers to make the company�s numbers sustainable. While the Business Head will have full corporate support and benefit from the lessons learned and processes developed over 9 years of operations, this is a role that will require fearless, audacious, entrepreneurial spirit. There will be no job harder than this, as the breadth of functions needed to operate a vertically integrated education system is staggering, and the challenges of accessing and serving the bottom of the pyramid are well known.

?It is an exciting time for our client to find a leader to drive their expansion in Andhra Pradesh.

They need someone inspirational, intelligent, and driven to build and lead a Vijayawada-based team capable of delivering high quality, sustainable education to hundreds of thousands of children across the state.
