About Roshan Thiran

Roshan Thiran


Roshan Thiran, instrumental in helping many organisations reinvent and turnaround, shares his secrets and stories on how organisational change and turnaround works. Roshan spent more than 14 years with General Electric (GE) across the US, Europe and across Asia. In 1999, in one of his turnaround assignments, he was sent to a poorly performing organisation in Malaysia, that his company purchased from a local Government Linked Company (GLC) in 1997. For the first two years after the acquisition, although much effort was made, not much change resulted. In 1999, Roshan and his team, not only managed to grow the business 5x but also managed to ensure it became one of the best performing businesses in the world, and is still recognised today, more than 20 years later, as one of the best performing organisations in the world in their industry. In the articles and videos in this site, Roshan will be sharing some of the actual steps he took to transform and grow this business and enable it to become the best in the world. He will also share various research he has uncovered and insights on leadership, driving change, growth and in the human capital space.

Roshan is currently the Founder and "Kuli" of the Leaderonomics Group of companies which began as a social enterprise. He has grown Leaderonomics and its various entities from an NGO into one of the best brands in leadership development, employee development and employee intelligence, not just in Malaysia but across South-East Asia. His current customers include many big MNCs, GLCs, PLC and global organisations.

Prior to founding Leaderonomics in 2008, he was the Director of Global Talent at Johnson & Johnson, managing a global portfolio for the organisation. And prior to J&J, he was at General Electric (GE) for more than 14 years, in 9 different roles, across the US, Europe and Asia. He has also managed Star Publications for a short period and was in Exxon-Mobil in the early part of his career.

Roshan is recognised as a though leader in the space of leadership and transformation, being a keynote speaker in numerous conferences across the world. He also serves on a number of boards and continues to mentor and coach top leaders from across the globe.
