Krithika owns and spear­heads one of Chen­nai’s lead­ing ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign firms, Trans­form, and Code, a de­signer con­struc­tion com­pany. Her firm Trans­form has com­pleted more than 1,000 projects in the past two decades. As a de­signer, Krithika’s as­so­ci­a­tion with all aes­thetic art forms has been a long one.

“I re­main calm in cri­sis sit­u­a­tions.”

Also a clas­si­cal dance ex­po­nent, Krithika re-launched her­self on the stage five years ago af­ter a long gap, and floated her own dance com­pany called the Na Maargam Dance Com­pany.

But that’s not all. There’s more to the vi­va­cious lady. She’s also the owner and de­signer of Svatma, Tamil Nadu’s only lux­ury bou­tique ho­tel. Her en­ter­pris­ing ven­tures apart, Krithika also speaks at in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ences on ar­chi­tec­ture, cul­ture and fine arts, and is also the hospi­tal­ity de­signer for pres­ti­gious prop­er­ties in In­dia and over­seas.

Multi-tal­ented to the core, here’s a lady un­afraid of tak­ing risks and pas­sion­ate about ev­ery­thing she does. So, what keeps this su­per woman tick­ing? Un­rav­el­ling her life and work philoso­phies...

MY TOUGH­EST CHAL­LENGE:

“Has been bal­anc­ing my cor­po­rate pro­file as a con­sul­tant and my role in the fam­ily - with­out com­pro­mis­ing on ei­ther.”

MY GREAT­EST ACHIEVE­MENT:

“Has been bring­ing up a well-rounded and con­fi­dent young man, my son Sriram, while ger­mi­nat­ing start-ups and cre­at­ing brands.”

WHAT MAKES ME A SU­PER WOMAN:

“Dis­ci­pline, ded­i­ca­tion, pur­suit of per­fec­tion and the abil­ity to take risks.”

MY SUC­CESS MANTRAS:

“I re­main calm in cri­sis sit­u­a­tions. I also know how to pri­ori­tise tasks, which is a good method to be­come suc­cess­ful.”
