My name is Kunal Dialani. I’m an Indian born and brought up in Dubai. My passion in electronics drove me to do Bachelor’s in electrical engineering five years ago from an American university. I developed technical skills from the University which I could use in my family business to handle the transition of our record-keeping system from the old-fashioned, manual, hand-written ledgers to ERP solutions. Being in a family business, I could wear several hats and gain experience in diverse roles from sales engineer to sales manager to supply chain manager.
