Pranav Ashok

Originally from India, Pranav moved to Singapore in 2009 to join Nanyang Technological University (NTU) for a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science. At university, he interned with Apple and Tata Consultancy services, only to realise that his coding skills were not good enough to give him a livelihood.

Starting his corporate career with one of the largest global UK based recruitment consultancies, he quickly grew to a senior consultant within the Secretarial & Office Support discipline. While managing a team of 2 consultants, he was also one of the top billers for 2 years in a row which led him to be a part of the top 5% revenue makers across Asia Pacific. He successfully brought in and managed key accounts while driving a strong sense of culture and teamwork across the firm.

In 2016, along with Anchit, Pranav co-founded Mapped, a boutique search firm for HR & office support professionals across SEA. Over the last 2 years, Mapped has grown to a team of 7 and given rise to ventures like Mapped Asia & Mapped Social.
