Kumar, a well-recognised and revered HR professional, was the first woman management committee member at Citi India. She was also the first South Asian and woman leader to be appointed as head of HR, global banking EMEA, in 2007.

Anuranjita Kumar, who has been the managing director, chief human resources officer-South Asia at Citi, since 2012, has now joined RBS as the managing director, human resources for international hubs. Kumar will be based out of Gurgaon, while she’ll be travelling extensively to the UK and other locations under international hubs.

Kumar is a business management graduate from XLRI, who began her professional journey at Procter & Gamble in 1994, post which she joined Citibank in 1995, and stayed with the brand for over 21 years. She rose up the corporate ladder in Citi, working across geographies —the US, Middle East, Africa, Europe and South Asia.

An HR veteran, Kumar says, “RBS is at an exciting phase in its journey, where it is getting out of the legacy and the past, and swiftly moving forward into the next phase with the people agenda at its core. This is where I see a great opportunity here to make a difference.”

Kumar shares that, “The leadership is focused on how to make this organisation a great place to work. Having been through a similar journey in my previous roles, I look forward to leveraging that learning and hopefully being able to contribute to the agenda. In addition, as RBS focusses on future- compatible or future-forward strategies, various aspects such as talent, technology and engagement will be a key focus, which is where one can help shape the organisational view and plans.”

Kumar, a well-recognised and revered HR professional, was the first woman management committee member at Citi India. She was also the first South Asian and woman leader to be appointed as head of HR, global banking EMEA, in 2007.

Kumar has always had talent development at the top of her agendas as she calls it, ‘Talent with a big T’. Even at RBS now, she is looking forward to nurturing a strong employer brand with meticulous focus on talent development, along with building managerial and leadership capabilities, enhancing employee engagement and operational excellence.
