Manivannan is the Chief Executive Officer of DesiCrew. He strongly believes that successful business can lead to significant social transformation. An alumnus of Anna University and IIM Bangalore, Mani’s professional experience spans across three sectors.
The Government (ranked 44th in the prestigious UPSC examination), Private (ICICI Bank) and the Non-profit sector (Byrraju Foundation). He has a distinct advantage of hands-on experience on both sides of the social divide – urban and rural. He was largely instrumental in implementing GramIT – the rural BPO initiative of Byrraju Foundation.
While the banker in him aims at winning deals and strategies, his tenure with the rural India has complimented his quest for creating value driven, lasting economic solutions. He is a certified Six Sigma Black Belt and his leadership skills were recognized when he was selected as ‘Emerging Leadership International Fellow’ by City University of New York.
