He is a member of two groups in Accenture — Great Place to Work (GPTW) and Learning the Ropes (LTR). These groups promote “work-life balance” within the company.

Before joining Accenture, Ash was a Research intern at EAS. He worked with the research team in getting information and running macros of certain files, performed CEA call analysis, and handled the TMT sector of the U.S.
