Kishor Anchlia, country head, India, Cobham Wireless (previously Aeroflex), is a veteran in the test and measurement industry with over two decades of experience. He joined Cobham Wireless in end-2014 and is responsible for taking the company’s operations to the next stage and developing a sustainable business with diversified solutions.  “The Indian market is highly demanding and looks for superfast meeting of needs. At times impatience helps, but at times it can be a big challenge too,” he says

Commenting on trends in the industry, he says, “Telecom networks have undergone an evolution from fixed line to wireless, TDM to IP, and now hardware centric to software centric – and this transformation has taken place at a breathtaking speed. Telecom operators need to look for technologies that are easily adaptable to change, open in architecture, have a low cost of operation and are scalable. It is our belief that the network virtualisation function environment will play a very important role in shaping future telecom networks.”

In the past, Anchlia has worked with Hewlett-Packard and Agilent Technologies where he helped build the business in India and SAARC countries. He joined Hewlett-Packard when it started operations in India and continued to work across different business verticals and technologies. He was head of the telecom vertical at Agilent, managing network optimisation and operations support system. Prior to Cobham Wireless, Anchlia was involved in establishing the legal entity of a US-based leading timing and synchronisation company in India; helping build a profitable customer-focused business model while creating an operations, sales and support team, and testing infrastructure in Delhi.

Anchlia is a strong believer in leading by example. “To me, leadership is not just about what you do but also how you do it. Leadership with an eye for detail has often helped me steer through challenges, overcome obstacles and achieve objectives.”

An engineer by training, he says his professional learning stems from interacting with many leaders and from practical experience across the telecom, defence and enterprise market segments. Besides his job, he is actively engaged in voluntary work focused on non-violence and has a strong involvement in the Indian education system, as a managing committee member in a leading Delhi school. He enjoys spending time with his family, which comprises his wife and two children. He also plays squash when time permits.
