Sameer Mehta

Managing Director & Head of Southeast Asia

As a kid, Sameer moved every 2-3 years across the world – a modern-day nomad resulting in living in 10 countries till date. Sameer joined DSGCP in 2021 after operating a large alcobev business in Asia where he got exposure to M&A, family businesses and all manner of emerging market challenges. He also spent 5 years at Bain in ASEAN advising consumer businesses on strategy, M&A, operational excellence, organization, governance and transformation. He rolls up his sleeves and gets into the details, something most of our companies appreciate (eventually).

Outside of work, Sameer is a sports afficionado and you will find him moving between tennis, squash and cricket for as long as his body allows. He is also a keen reader —he’ll start reading almost anything but wont finish most. He has 2 young boys who keep him on the move.
