Mr. Mutsuddi developed his ability to make considered decisions in these areas during his 18-year career with Becton Dickinson (BD), a $17B global medical technology company with a workforce of 65,000 in 190+ countries.

Earlier in his career, Mr. Mutsuddi honed his talents in HR leadership at three multinational academy companies. As Senior Manager of HR with The Coca-Cola Company in India, he demonstrated an innate ability to rapidly scale an organization from 200 to 12,000 employees while integrating multiple bottling companies. At General Electric and Citicorp, he developed a strong foundation in talent acquisition, talent retention, performance management, and business growth in a fast-changing, hyper-growth environment.
