The company believes that his appointment will help the company to expand the portfolio of digital assets which are scalable solutions in diversity and inclusion.
A leader in DEI consulting in India, Interweave is looking at expansion of solutions to address the needs of the border organizational ecosystem to be more inclusive, and this will also be one of the focus areas in 2022-23. With his consulting experience, Pothen will now help the firm in building frameworks to provide an integrated approach to solutions in the areas of diversity and inclusion (D&I). He will also focus on broadening the operations geographically and adding adjacent services, to accelerate the growth of Interweave. He joins the company from Aon where he was the Practice Head for Executive Compensation and Governance.

He also comes with significant exposure in market research, communication, and engineering.
“I am really excited about this new role. Today with an increased focus on sustainability, inclusion needs to be defined broadly rather than kept limited to employees. A journey of cultural transformation through sustainable and inclusive behaviors of the larger ecosystem is essential and I look forward to working on this vision together with Interweave,” said Pothen Jacob, Partner, and Principal Consultant, Interweave Consulting.
