The Fraternitea

Ashok Mittal

Chief Executive Officer

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Ashok Mittal is steeped in tea. It also wouldn’t be wrong to say that we envy him. Spending 4 decades working on something you love is sheer luck, isn’t it? And it is our sheer luck that he is now our CEO. He is the encyclopaedia on all things Tea. He has probably steeped more tea in his life than the Queen’s butler. He has contributed a great deal to the cause of tea in India, Indonesia and Vietnam, and come away with consumer behaviours from all over the world due to his passion for travel. But what we love about Ashok is the largeness to Ashok’s personality. Which is evident, for instance, in his meditation room, which in all fairness is larger than the Queen’s bedroom.


Amit Dutta


We don’t know what Amit Dutta is better at, Marketing or Orchestrating. If he hadn’t spent 21 years in Marketing, Category Management and Sales, we think he would’ve made for a great Philharmonic Maestro, given his taste for the fine things in life. And hence, his passion for the finest teas India can produce. He knows just the right things to do at the right times, just the right people to talk to for the right things. And he knows how to put them all together to create magic. The management students he teaches could probably wax eloquent on his multitasking capabilities, as would the airline officials who often witness him pole-vaulting into shutting airplane doors.


Pallavi Pandey

Director - Marketing & Human Resources

Teamonk’s Chief Marketing Officer, Pallavi Pandey isn’t right for the job just because of her 13 years of rich corporate experience. Underneath the charming, courteous and cheerful personality, lies a woman of steel who has won multiple laurels at work with as much ease as she has run a food start-up. She is role model for us on all things marketing, with her varied experience in Research, Product and Brand Marketing and E-commerce innovation and digital marketing. But the real reason we love her is that she likes the same drink as the rest of us

Advisory Board

Piyush Pandey

Piyush Pandey could single-handedly be credited for making the advertising industry glamourous outside the advertising world in India. The winner of more than 600 awards internationally, he is the only creative person to have held the post of Executive Chairman at Ogilvy & Mather, India. As providence would have it, he was a tea taster before he started pouring forth brilliant copy. Hence, his verdict is twice as precious to us.


Sanjay Khosla

Sanjay Khosla is best known for making wheels turn. Like he did for Wheel, a detergent brand in India. He is also widely known for transformations. Not his own, for he is uncannily consistent. In his over 40 years as a corporate honcho, a Marketer, responsible for 65,000 people in 60 countries, Sanjay has transformed the lives of various brands, lives of people thereby, and certainly P&L sheets. He is just the kind of Transformation specialist that a Transportation brand like Teamonk could use.
