With a global career that has taken Dr. Lalli from Alberta to Singapore and many other countries along the way, Sandip is now the President and Chief Executive Officer with the Calgary Chamber of Commerce.
International corporations have entrusted her with strategic planning and execution of their most important initiatives. She has been called upon to identify opportunities for growth and assess business risk. Known for her communication skills and visionary leadership, she has led in the face of adversity and seeming impossibility.
At the heart of everything she does is a firm belief that making a contribution to society is fundamental – it is in her DNA. And the unique contribution that Sandip can make to society is rooted in a practical business sense, a belief that a contribution to a strong economy equates to a better quality of life for everyone.
For Cargill Incorporated – largest global privately held company providing food, agriculture, financial and industrial products and services to the world – Sandip steered the financial management from High River, AB to US operations and advised colleagues in Brazil, Honduras, England, Switzerland, Belgium, Amsterdam, Russia, Singapore, India, Papua New Guinea and Mexico.
When Cargill needed a strong leader in the Asia Pacific to not only assess operational business risk but also advise the company operations and communicate effectively with a wide range of stakeholders, they turned to Sandip.
Sandip holds an Institute of Corporate Directors, ICD.D, a Doctorate in Business Administration degree, a Master’s degree and is a Fellow Chartered Professional Accountant.
