My name is Shahram G. Maralani. I am passionate about Technology, Leadership and Humanity. My mission in life is to encourage and enable people in improving their lives and their society through application of technology as well as world-class leadership practices.
Today, I work in a leadership role in Assurance Industry, also referred to as TIC (Testing, Inspection and Certification industry). My studies started at the Iranian National Organization for Development of Exceptional Talents (NODET) for seven years of secondary school followed by studying Mechanical Engineering in Tehran University. I continued my studies throughout my career later with an MBA program from Tehran university and a Executive Leadership program in INSEAD in France.
I have started working in the industry during my studies and have been in different industries over last 20 years including Automotive, Food, Packaging, Technical Test Services and Management Consulting. Those day, I have had more tendency to management systems and strategy processes than technical/engineering subjects resulting in a fast move from being a mechanical engineer to a quality engineer and later a quality manager and strategic planning role. For last 13 years, I have been working with DNV (Today DNV GL) in Tehran, Dubai and Rotterdam in different management and executive roles.
Specialties: Strategic Management, Business Management, Operational Excellence, Management Systems and Quality Management.
Other areas of interest: ICT, Application of Technology, Leadership, Culture and its impact in Business and societies.
