People of Kuma - Santosh Putchala
Meet Santosh, our Director of Privacy. It’s a serendipitous publication that brought him to the privacy & security domain, he can drive a stick-shift and enjoys it a lot more than auto-transmission, and he refrains from eating anything that's canned and he drinks vegetable juice every morning.
