He's a graduate member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), fellow of Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand (CAANZ) and senior fellow of the Financial Services Institute of Australasia (FINSIA).

- volunteered in a board capacity for several community based not for profits;
- mentored university students, colleagues & finance industry professionals through formal mentoring programs; and
- serves on the UNSW Business School Alumni Advisory Board.
Vivek acknowledges the importance of leaders championing flexibility by being advocates and role models, with a focus on delivering outcomes rather than time spent at the office. Like many Perpetual staff, he values the strong work / life balance flexible working arrangements offer and the positive contribution it makes to both home and work life. Working flexibly has contributed to a lift in employee engagement and personally, its facilitated the opportunity for him to engage in more volunteer roles outside the office, giving back to the community and broadening his own personal development from these experiences.
