Prior to joining AIMS International, Chanchal was a senior banking executive and corporate advisor, with more than 30 years of experience across the EU, Malaysia, Russia, Central & Eastern Europe, Hong Kong and India. 

Leveraging insights gained across various industries and geographies, he provides organisations a range of services, with a focus on Executive Search and Talent Management solutions.

In his more than two decades as a senior executive at Scotiabank and ABN AMRO, Chanchal was a trusted advisor to large corporate and public sector clients regarding their credit, restructuring and commercial banking needs. He built large teams across multiple geographies, led regional Sales & Marketing initiatives and served on both banks’ Risk & Regulatory boards in the respective countries.

Chanchal also takes an interest in entrepreneurial ventures; he founded an advisory firm focused on growth strategy and capital investments into mid-sized SMEs, and established the first office in South Asia for a U.S.-based career transition and talent development firm.

Chanchal holds degrees in Economics from the University of Calcutta and Strategic Leadership from Oxford University.


Having spent the first part of my life in India, I began my career as a young entrant into the international banking industry in Hong Kong almost 25 years ago. The sheer intellectual thrill that characterised my first experience working in a new country and culture became a key driving force in my career, and I spent the next more than two decades working across the world, leading multicultural teams and servicing corporate clients from diverse backgrounds and sectors. 

My years of experience in senior banking roles across Asia and Europe have taught me valuable lessons about leadership, coherent strategy-setting, and building dynamic, effective organisations – all of which I believe I leverage when working with clients. Led by curiosity and deep industry knowledge, I am motivated by the constant challenge of empowering companies with the best, most sustainable teams possible, acknowledging the unique nature of every business, culture and position. 

Lastly and maybe most importantly, I believe, my three decades of work experience in international banking will add value to our clients to find and grow their leaders.
