Pratiksha has more than two decades of experience across diverse global industry leaders including L’Oreal and McKinsey & Company as well as high-growth disruptors including CB Insights and Gilt.
Most recently, Patel served as the Senior VP of People at CB Insights, where she counseled leaders on change management, built a data-driven talent acquisition function, and embedded values-driven, equitable, and inclusive practices into People programs. She has also served as a talent expert for McKinsey & Company to transform and improve customer outcomes, organizational velocity, and talent engagement. In addition, Patel serves as an advisor to PeopleTech Partners, an early-stage advisory and investment group that leverages the insights of current People leaders operating in top-tier businesses to accelerate the growth of companies in their portfolio.
Through her diverse experiences, Patel has focused on cultural cohesion, raising the bar, and evolving programs that resonate with progressive ways of working and drivers of employee engagement. Even more uniquely, her experience has included close collaboration with global teams and office-based, hybrid, and distributed models. Patel’s wide-ranging skill set across the People function will be immensely valuable to Branch’s culture-driven, remote-first model.
