Chandru Iyer

Head of Business Development, South Asia Group

I joined the firm in early 2019 to head up business development for the South Asia group. I am an experienced cross border international business development specialist having worked on international trade and investment transactions between India, Scandinavia, Australia and UK for close to 20 years.

I generate new business opportunities for the South Asia group spanning multiple services lines and sectors, supporting Indian companies who are looking to enter the UK market or UK businesses aiming to access the Indian market, greenfield or inorganically.

International business development and market entry strategy have been at the forefront of my professional experience. In previous roles, I have been instrumental in assisting many corporate entities from the UK, Finland and Australia to enter the Indian market. Notable examples include supporting Finland’s leading telecom major and their suppliers in Chennai, India, advising some of the new age Indian businesses like Happiest Minds, Zomato and Kayako with their UK market entry plans and other various Indian businesses with their international expansion plans to go global.

I build strong relationships with clients from the start. I place emphasis on understanding the cultural nuances present while dealing with clients’ needs.

Outside work, I am an avid cricket buff and have a flair for cooking, albeit only vegetarian dishes, which my wife and son have to bear with, when I am at home.
