The CEO Magazine in conversation with Priya Marwah, Founder & Managing Director of Tyche Jobs
TCM: What was your dream as a Business Lady?
Priya: Business is the ultimate test of anyone’s capabilities of being successful because it actually drives you to prove your mettle in the world where success has no gender. My dream has always been to be the best at what I do and my real earnings are the people who believe I can do that. I would like to build Tyche Jobs Executive Search Consultants to be a preferred provider of talent, especially in the diversity hiring space. Also, I want to take Tyche Jobs to global markets.
TCM: What is your greatest professional accomplishment till date?
Priya: My greatest professional accomplishment is creating Tyche Jobs out of nothing. The word ‘Tyche’ comes from Greek mythology and means luck and fortune. True to its name, the company has showered luck and fortune to us and I think that has been my greatest accomplishment.
TCM: Who has been your greatest inspiration?
Priya: My greatest inspiration has been my father, who stood like a solid rock behind us and always told us to follow our dreams and do what we actually wanted to do in life. He was always there to catch us lest we should fall. I think I have his winning attitude.
TCM: What do you think is the biggest challenge to female leadership?
Priya:The biggest challenge to female leadership is working in a male-dominated corporate world and being taken seriously. Somewhere down the line, we are still fighting the odds and can be written off. It’s difficult for some people to understand that women don’t need certificates to show that they can be as successful as men even while managing a family well. We have to prove ourselves at every step of the way to success, specially women like me, who have really started from ground zero.
