PRMIA Names Nirakar Pradhan as CEO of New India Office

The PRMIA Board of Directors is happy to announce that Nirakar Pradhan has accepted the position of PRMIA India CEO to lead our new India office.  Nirakar will report to Ken Radigan, PRMIA CEO.

Nirakar, based in Mumbai, has been a PRMIA Board member since 2018.  He has actively contributed to the widening and deepening of PRMIA campaign in India, including the setting up of new chapters in Mumbai and Chennai, recognition of the PRM™ Designation by major market players, and also the Ministry of Finance as an approved educational qualification for all CROs. 

Nirakar will lead our efforts to increase PRM certification and membership across India with the help of our Regional Directors and Chapter volunteers.  We plan to strengthen further our presence in India by establishing PRMIA chapters in Bangalore, Delhi and Hyderabad.

Nirakar will continue to work with major banks (public, private and foreign), and the IT sector supporting financial services, to win corporate accounts for training, membership and sponsorship deals.

We are also pleased to announce that PRMIA has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Srichid Academy based in Bangalore, headed by Professor Satchidananda Sogala, to provide PRMIA training and placement services to the India Risk community.

The Board believes India represents a unique growth opportunity for PRMIA with the right combination of a:
  • large and growing risk management community
  • well-educated and dedicated work force
  • diversified risk community with significant participants from: banks, asset managers, insurance and IT services
  • supportive regulatory environment
  • growing economy

    Please join me in welcoming Nirakar to this new and exciting challenge.
