Our People

Gitanjali Ghate, Managing Director

Gitanjali Ghate is the founding partner and Managing Director of Third Eye. She has a masters degree in Psychology. Her academic background and natural proclivity to dive deep into the human mind, make her role at The Third Eye akin to an archaeologist of the psyche. As she delves into the recesses of the consumers mind Gitanjali unearths critical insights and patterns of behavior that explain not only their present but also their roots and culture. Her love for excavation and discovery also makes her an avid street shopper, and intrepid traveler. When not at her desk, Gitanjali can be found in the quaint markets and forgotten lanes of an off-the-map location, hunting for the unusual piece with a story!! Her life philosophy is to use her third eye to discover the mysteries, hidden beauty, and (last but not least) the little curiosity shops of the world!

Jasmeet Kaur Srivastava, Managing Director

Jasmeet Srivastava, founding partner and MD of The Third Eye, is an IIM Ahmedabad alumnus who graduated from the institute with a desire to create an organization with a difference. Thus was born The Third Eye, that not only embodies Jasmeet's incisive recognition of consumer truths, but also her eye for detail and strategic orientation. In addition The Third Eye's rare, much valued culture reflects Jasmeet's nature - her gentle nurturance and high empathy and her priorities, especially her commitment to foster personal growth for every individual. Jasmeet's skills extend beyond the efficient and successful management of Third Eye to include her culinary expertise. She is a researcher by day and gourmet chef by night! So don't be surprised if The Third Eye spin off is a cordon bleu restaurant with a difference!

Sumita Hattangadi, Senior Partner

A management graduate and a film maker by profession, Sumita decided to study human life from the other side of the camera and has been doing qualitative consumer research since 1998. Her diverse experience allows her to provide a width and depth of understanding of the consumer. Among her many roles at Third Eye, Sumita also provides us with our laugh track.

Sidharth Chaturvedi, CEO Designate

Sidharth has an MBA in marketing from IMI, New Delhi where his love for market research first began. He has spent the last 7 years unravelling the mysteries of consumers minds. As a dyed in the wool qualitative researcher, Sidharths interests lie in communication research, ethnography, semiotics and psychographic profiling. When he is not busy exploring the depths of consumer thought, Sidharth loves to ponder over whether he loves reading murder mysteries more or mythology; loves Gulzar more or Salman Khan; loves eating more or cooking and finally, loves Bollywood more or television soaps and reality shows.

Rajesh Patil, Partner

Romila Karnik, Partner

Born and raised in Bombay, Romila is a hardcore Mumbaikar. She loves living in the melting pot of different cultures and people, where everyday is a new adventure. Like her beloved city, Romila is also vibrant and inclusive of many ideas, people and cultures. After completing her MBA, Romila got into Qualitative research, attracted by the newness and the potential to explore the entire width of categories and products. What has kept her in the field is the excitement of doing something new everyday. Romila loves to travel to off beat places and try out new foods.

Nidhi Jacob, Partner

Nidhi did her B.Com from Mumbai University which she has followed up with a Post Graduate Diploma specializing in Marketing. She entered the field of qualitative research immediately after this and has been hooked. Over the last 6 years, Nidhi's love for consumer behavior has only grown stronger; as she has unraveled the intricacies of their minds across categories ranging from financial services, personal care to food Often, Nidhi can be found with her nose buried deep in a book which she can devour with as much gusto as the marble cake she bakes so well.

Jayadevan Ambat, Partner

A story-teller at heart, Jayadev (going by the name JD) believes he has found his calling in the stimulating environs of Third Eye. Be it the rigor of collecting consumer yarn, the distilling of it in the famed Third Eye huddle, or the crafting of a fresh narrative with the shining core of a consumer insight - all gives the story teller in him a big high. The value addition he brings to the table is his varied experience and skill sets, having done work of both qualitative and quantitative grain over the last 6 years, with a variety of FMCG, New Media, Technology and Finance clients JD has done his Masters in Communication Management from MICA and his Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering prior to that. An avid reader, movie buff and music enthusiast in his spare time, he feels blessed at the blurring of boundaries of work and passion.

Girija Gangoly, Partner

Girija Iyer Gangoly is an alumnus of MICA and prior to that did her undergrads with Economics. A researcher for the last 15+ years, her love for her craft has only grown, fueled by the diversity and depth of insights she has had the joy of unlocking. Working across client and agency has given her a business lens that gets her always asking, what next, apart from the why. A content maven who loves most genres, knowing five languages has only expanded the amount of shows she can watch – and for the rest, one always has subtitles! Unfolding stories, layered characters, complex relationships, conflicts human beings face are at the core of storytelling – and consumers – maybe explaining her never ending love affair with both. She also loves music, traveling - and food, which often decides where she travels to! She is a passionate advocate for inclusivity, and a core member with a Parent Autism Advocacy group working toward awareness, education and legal change for the community

When not working, she can be often found reading /watching detective crime thrillers and discussing B-town gossip
