Anjali Nakhooda

At her core, Anjali Nakhooda is a strategic thinker who thrives on finding opportunity: white space growth areas, issues in current business strategy, and ways to optimize processes—all in the service of driving exceptional growth. Anjali shines a light on ambiguous situations by seeing patterns and themes, which enables her to identify and articulate options, collaborate with the senior leaders to make decisions, and then lead teams to achieve these outcomes.

While leading teams at the Boston Consulting Group, Anjali successfully managed multiple stakeholders and constituents—senior BCG partners, C-suite level clients, and newly minted consultants—to lead growth strategy, complex merger integrations, and process improvements for Fortune 500 clients across multiple industries. Anjali leveraged that experience in her next role at Beachbody to lead the Executive Leadership team in articulating the company’s vision, define the three year strategic plan, and identify core business needs, such as the entry into digital distribution. In her most recent role at IRI, as head of strategy for the media division, Anjali is responsible for collaborating with leaders across the organization to identify the path to double-digit growth and leading large-scale initiatives, including launching media products internationally.

Anjali holds an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, with a concentration in strategic management, and a bachelor of science in economics from Duke University.
