The Team

Krishna Prasad, Founder Director

KPK’s founder comes by his expertise in solution design for management needs in finance, regulatory and analytics, as a Fellow Chartered Accountant with more than 20 years of experience. With these, he also commands a certain eminence in audit, consulting and compliance for leading business houses, for whom he envisions and builds road maps that go the distance.

In the late 1990’s, Prasad’s’ pioneering vision identified the emerging need for externally managed accounting services. This was being most felt in services companies – including technology companies – that wanted to establish or validate a presence in India. He accordingly began to engineer the growth of our managed business accounting function, beyond traditional audit. Our Setup service is also where his presence is felt.

More recently, as KPK’s capabilities broadened our service palette, Prasad spearheaded our growth into the area of managed business intelligence and analytic solutions function for leading business corporate entities.

The realm of HR is also where he focuses, identifying individuals who’ve broadened their careers in self-actualizing, proactive environments to join our steadily-expanding family.

Kiran Karumbaiah, Founder Director

Karumbaiah is a Fellow Chartered Accountant who has to his credit around 20 years of experience in accounting, finance and regulatory compliance. A true problem-solver, educator, team leader and consensus-builder, he moves comfortably between all internal and external organizational levels, while maintaining impeccable standards of professional ethics and integrity.

Kiran is at the vanguard of KPK client delivery responsibilities: he ensures that the solutions we provide to the challenges these responsibilities entail are seamless and qualitatively immaculate.

KPK’s growth and its increasing client list can be attributed to the domain expertise and knowledge he’s gained, as also to his lead in constantly augmenting all team members’ skill sets with the latest process needs, regulatory changes and best-in-industry practices.
