Balu Pandian
Chairman
sp
Balu Pandian upped and returned from a high-profile career in Singapore to set up his dream project: Brookfield High. The gentleman has over 20 years of corporate management experience – both local and international, spanning several business sectors. In addition to a successful career in the corporate sector, Balu has also had a long stint with several leading advertising agencies. The creative interest developed during this period will find its way into making schooling fun and engaging at Brookfield High.

Balu will be responsible for guiding the culture of the school.

In his words “My experience in the corporate sector has given me a clear understanding of the significant gap that exists in current education practices and the increased expectations from corporate, local and international sectors. Given the very positive projections in India’s economic growth over the next 30 years, the current gap between expectations and availability of quality talent is a very serious one.

The setting up of Brookfield High is a small attempt to bridge this gap while creating a truly evolving school that meets and exceeds the country’s expectations from the student leaders of the future. ”
