He sold his equity stake in 2007 and now serves as an advisor to small businesses in the areas of strategy, business development, operations, and finance.

Over the ten years Kunal was with B&A, annual revenues grew from $2M to over $80M during which time Kunal was responsible for approximately 40% of the revenue growth and doubling the employee base. From 2001-2006, Kunal focused on building an enterprise systems practice centered on enterprise resource planning (ERP) platforms and expanded B&A’s client base to include Fortune 500 companies, large systems integrators, and numerous federal government agencies. The practice grew to annual revenues of more than $35 million through significant strategic alliances with IBM and SAP. In 2004, Kunal captured a five year $60 million project with IBM to support NASA’s data center operations and SAP competency center and secured multiple IBM blanket purchase agreements both in the government and commercial sectors. In 2006, Kunal helped capture a six year SAP initiative with IBM at the Department of Interior to modernize their financial systems. Kunal also led the effort to become a preferred vendor with SAP Public Services as well as a SAP CSA Silver Level Partner in 2005.

Kunal managed B&A’s corporate operations from 2005-2006, resolving corporate legal, financial, and HR issues, and directing new business development initiatives. From 2000 to 2002, he was responsible for the incubation of Bucher and Christian Consulting Inc., now BCForward (www.bcforward.com), the largest privately held IT company in the state of Indiana with over 4000 consultants (as of 2017).
