Hi Again.
I'm Ronak.

I’m always up for a heated debate about Berlin’s best pizza, burger, dumpling, or kebab, as long as its over a Mate or a Sterni.

Ronak Ganatra - Portrait

Coming from Bollywood-land and having lived around the globe (at least the part that’s east of the Atlantic), I’m an expert at consuming things that most would deem inedible. During my personal time I’m obsessively curating playlists, reading on the couch, discovering new restaurants, or complaining about the sun during Berlin’s short summers.

After all this time in Berlin, I’ve become quite the self-proclaimed expert on the food scene, and would gladly share my unsolicited thoughts.

I’m a commercial growth generalist, focused on combining Marketing, Sales, Customer Success, Automation, and Product.

I’ve typically handled commercial activities in B2C and B2B organisations, including Sales, Digital Marketing, Sustainable Growth, Business Development, Analytics, and Data Visualisation, and love experimenting with new models and techniques to discover something new.
