Sheetal Sahoo joined VISTA InfoSec in 2014 to lead its growth in international markets, specifically the US and to head the overall working of the core functions of HR, Office Administration and Accounts. With both Naren and Rohan on the "techie" sides and more interested in marketing and operations, the core functions of HR, Office Administration and Accounts was ignored or mostly tended by personnel working in silos. This led to several discrepancies in billing, loss of revenue, Tax compliance issues and employee discontent.
With the rapid growth of the company, there was a crucial need to have someone trusted and organised enough to run these functions as well as look into the growth of the company in the US market. Sheetal, a top of the class graduate in Architecture but with an eye for detail and organised work was appointed to take over the work.
Since the time she joined the company, both Naren and Rohan are back to doing what they do best - marketing and operations :).
