However, the challenges don’t end there. Mahesh Tampi is also responsible for ensuring sustainable business success in all the circles that fall under his purview in the eastern region. “To achieve this, we have chalked out various strategies and processes, many of which pertain to the geographical conditions of the area. I am glad that the results of our efforts are beginning to show with many of the circles I oversee showing significant growth, both in terms of subscriber numbers and revenues,” he says.
Mahesh Tampi has experience of over a decade in the telecom space in various facets across different geographies. Prior to entering the telecom space, he worked in Xerox and 3M.
He believes in an open-door style of management. “At TATA DOCOMO, we follow an open-door and transparent philosophy, both with our customers and our teams. I see my primary role as empowering our teams, providing guidance wherever necessary and facilitating their success,” he says. That apart, he believes that clarity of thought is important to inspire and motivate his team to perform well.
Tampi is clearly very satisfied with the way his career has shaped up. “It has always been my dream to work with ethical and responsible corporates, and I am fortunate to have been associated with some of the best companies in India,” he says.
When asked about the likely future trends in the telecom space, Tampi says: “Over time, we will see a move towards greater data usage by customers, as telecom begins to impact their lifestyles. This will be both in terms of pure internet consumption and a greater adoption of innovative services and solutions not only by individual users but also enterprises. Hence, to tap the potential that such growth may entail, we are offering tailor-made services and products for the Indian consumer.”
While ensuring TTSL’s profitability in the eastern region, does he get any spare time? “Barely,” he says with a laugh. When he does, however, he enjoys traveling and has plans to visit more places in north India. That apart, he enjoys listening to music as well as reading.
