An ardent fan of the Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist techniques, Veenusha feels at home within the walls of the NYC museums she often visits. Outside of this structured environment, Veenusha thrives in the chaos that typically characterizes transformation and change.
Her ability to balance big picture thinking and details allows her to successfully tackle any challenges that come her way.

Veenusha is an Engagement Manager at Acquis and a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) with a varied background in both management consulting and impact investing. Most recently, Veenusha has been focused on the pharmaceutical industry and clinical trial space. She is a subject matter expert in Clinical Trial Data Disclosure and Transparency and is helping her clients build the capabilities required to comply with ongoing changes in transparency policy and regulation.

Veenusha’s experience both locally and abroad has earned her a well-rounded viewpoint that benefits her clients and project teams. She has managed cross-sector consolidation projects at a Fortune 50 Pharmaceutical company, helping to centralize siloed operations. Veenusha has led business transformation initiatives in Africa across various organizations including a central bank, a university, and a regional socio-economic bloc. She also spent four years driving continuous improvement and sustainability efforts to structure and grow the operations of a leading community investment enterprise.

Prior to joining Acquis, Veenusha held positions at PricewaterhouseCoopers, Calvert Social Investment Foundation, Inc., and Abt Associates, Inc. Veenusha holds a Masters of Business Administration from the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics with a concentration in Management from Ohio Wesleyan University.
