Having lived, worked, and studied in Dubai, Denmark, India and the USA, Jayesh brings together a unique cross-cultural sensitivity and a passion for solving ambiguous, unstructured business problems to improve customer experience. Prior to pursuing his MBA at USC Marshall, Jayesh was closely involved in the early growth stage of CinePlay, a media start-up in India, as the Head of Operations, and has also worked in Sales and Distribution at Reliance Broadcast Networks and in Acquisitions at Magnolia Pictures.
In addition to his business pursuits, Jayesh is an avid film-maker, with his short film Sharbat screening at the Cannes Film Festival 2015 and winning the Best Short Film at the Washington DC South Asian Film Festival, and another film he produced Chateau Sauvignon, screening at over 185 film festivals across the world.
Throughout his experience – whether in leading teams in global distribution of films, or extracting operating efficiencies in production- he always tries to find the story that needs to be told. Jayesh loves cooking, travelling and eating mangoes.
