On January 2, 2023, Priti Singh joined Scale Facilitation® as the new Managing Director, Head of India Operations. In this role, Priti will lead operations in India, including setting up the Scale Facilitation® Indian office and its infrastructure, building partnerships with local and international stakeholders, and establishing and maintaining core tenets of the Technical Center of Excellence (CoE).
Priti will be a strong, foundational leader for Scale Facilitation® as it lays down roots in India and engages its Friend Shoring™ model, which facilitates the successful establishment of sovereign advanced manufacturing and innovation capabilities in like-minded nations.
Scale Facilitation® has had a strong interest in India for a while, strengthening its in-house expertise, e.g., three Scale Facilitation® Advisory Board members have Indian heritage: Professors Rajesh Vasa, PhD, and Joseph Matthews, MD, and Senior Technology Executive Sudhir Pai. Numerous Scale Analysts that recently graduated from their full-year Scale Analyst Program are Indian students, who studied in Australia at Deakin University, a leading Australian University, itself having strong ties with India and numerous ongoing collaborations with Scale Facilitation®.
Priti will work within the Scale Facilitation® Operations (SFO) pillar, which oversees company creation and leverages commercialization partners and international expertise to ensure project success. She will also work collaboratively with Todd Noller, Managing Director of Technology at Scale Facilitation® to manage backend technological support and development.
“Scale Facilitation® is a go-to firm for all emerging technology. The firm has a great culture, visionary leaders, and values that align with my own,” says Priti. “I am very excited about launching Scale Facilitation® in India!” remarked Priti.
“We’re excited to have Priti bring her leadership and project management expertise to the Scale Facilitation® team as we launch our presence in India, a key international partner and QUAD member. With the Australia-India Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement (ECTA) agreement just getting underway, Priti will be instrumental in building out our Indian operations, which are already looking to be extremely successful, with several large contracts underway,” says Michael Winn, Managing Director, Head of Scale Facilitation® Operations.
“Priti’s expertise and skills will allow Scale Facilitation® to staff up quickly and efficiently, which is no small task in India, where competition for top talent is fierce. Her professional credibility is top-notch and will allow Scale Facilitation® to set up shop quickly to meet the growing demand for its services,” said Rajesh Vasa, Scale Facilitation® Advisory Board member and Head of Translational Research and Development at Deakin University, a Scale Facilitation® academic partner.
Priti has a bachelor’s degree in Engineering, a background in Industrial Electronics, and over 18 years of Experience in Programme management and Digital transformation. Priti is PMP, Prince 2 and ITIL & Azure certified.
