“I have assisted Greg Hannan to open a new Hop2it company in Singapore in 2020 where I work as a Chartered Accountant and Advisor. Also in 2020 while Hop2it was restructuring through changes in Hong Kong, I opened markets in PPE for Hop2it and provided assistance to help maintain Hop2it and its ventures through the Corvid 19 global pandemic. I have attached my brief history below for you.“
Arun is a Chartered Accountant from India and an MBA in Finance and Information Systems from SP Jain Institute of Management, Mumbai with over 20+ years of experience in corporate finance advisory, market entry strategy; financial management, corporate structuring/restructuring, and cross-border transactions.

The most recent role was that of a Group CFO of Eastern, a diversified large business group based in India with interests in Spices, Tea, Food Products, Mattresses, Treads, and Real Estate.
Prior to the association with Eastern, Arun founded Red Dot Advisors, a Singapore/Bangalore-based consulting and advisory firm specializing in mid-market cross-border transactions, M&As, JVs, and Strategic Alliances in the Indian, South East Asian, and Australian markets. Over the past 14 years, Arun has advised and structured numerous mid-market transactions in India, South East Asia, and Australia across various sectors including Mining, Healthcare, IT Services, Financial Services, and Telecom. The financial advisory experience spans access to venture capital funds, private equity funds, structured financing lenders, banks & sovereign funds in India and South East Asia.

Apart from his professional background, Arun devotes a significant amount of time to guiding technology and consumer start-ups founders in India. Arun is a family man, a keen pre-Covid 19 traveler, and an avid music collector.
I work directly with the Hop2it Group Chairman on matters concerning Investor Relations, Venture funding, and other matters of international taxation and Member communications.
With the current global pandemic, I returned back to India where I am opening up markets for our resource mining interests and other international trade opportunities. I will be returning to Singapore in 2022 when I am sure my family is safe and will commute to Australia where I also have family and some years of commercial experience there.
