Sannam S4 Group, a leading global education services provider and international market entry firm, is delighted to announce the appointment of Somya Satsangi to the company’s Group Board of Directors. Somya brings 28 years of experience in business consulting, corporate finance and information technology at multinational corporations across Europe, India and the US.

“It is a great honour to welcome Somya to our team in India,” said Ashok Swarup, Sannam S4 Group’s India Chair. “She brings a range of tremendously relevant skills to our business, across a wide variety of industries, and her leadership and collaborative working style will be an inspiration to us all.”

Somya is currently an independent director at the largest, publicly-listed healthcare diagnostic company in India. Previous appointments include 4 years on the board at Sopaxa Steria, a position at Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) as a Senior Executive, and a Director at Arthur Andersen Business Consulting with postings in London, Munich, Mumbai and New Delhi. During her career, she has focused on roles in technology commercialisation, government contracting, organisational design and continues to be an advisor to tech startups (predominantly AI,) education, and defence.

“Somya’s deep experience in both education and commercial sectors will undoubtedly help us achieve our ambitious goals,” said Kapil Dua, Sannam S4 Group’s Managing Director APAC in New Delhi. “Her keen insights and innovative ideas further highlight her visibility as a true and visionary leader.”

Sixty-three percent of Sannam S4 Group employees are female, and the company’s gender and diversity agenda prioritises access to opportunities and support across all teams. Satsangi’s areas of expertise – which range from business development and strategy and operations to helping founders navigate the complexities of the start-up process – will help drive the Group’s initiative to see more females attain leadership positions within the company.

“I am thrilled and excited to be a part of Sannam S4 Group’s growth journey,” said Satsangi. “My goal is to contribute to the dynamism of the company as it undergoes significant growth and transformation.”

Satsangi will join fellow Executive Directors Lakshmi Iyer, Dyutimoy Biswas and Nikhil Shanker on Sannam S4 Group’s Management India Board.
