Vikash brings dual medical and business backgrounds to ZRG, which was recently named the fastest-growing global executive search firm.

“From holding executive positions on nearly every continent to spearheading Aspen’s project to introduce generic antiretroviral drugs in Africa, Vikash’s career has seen many unique – and impressive – accomplishments,” said ZRG’s CEO, Larry Hartmann. “With his strong pharmaceutical background and wealth of advising experience, I’m confident Vikash will pair his clients with the right leaders continue transforming the lives of patients worldwide.”

Vikash added, “I was drawn to ZRG by Larry Hartmann’s clarity, creative thinking, and integrity and the shared DNA I saw in many of my new colleagues: highly intelligent with humility, passion, and a drive to be the best. As a doctor and advisor, a caring nature and client-first mentality have always been important to me, and I’m proud to join an organization that holds these same values.”
