BALAJI V PARTHASARATHY
Bala, a management graduate from New Hampshire University, School of Business, USA, (Indian Chapter) believes in assuming direct ownership of original ideas and responsibilities and taking them forward passionately. When it comes to identifying niche needs and developing bespoke business solutions for the selected few in the corporate world, his keen powers of observation into systems and how they work (or, don’t work) has stood in good stead and helped benchmark the deliverables with some of the best solution providers worldwide. Bala has a knack of seeing what the guy next cubicle can’t see in a zillion real life and real time situations. He focuses his razor sharp acumen for architecting an analysis superstructure from ground up and then handing over the curser to his corps of encoders to write the coda with a flourish.
Thus, he has emerged as one of the few non-IT entrepreneurs in Chennai who continue to play a swashbuckling role by cutting a systemic swathe right across the field of boutique software development with great alacrity.
Bala, an avid cricketer and an amateur astronomer/stargazer, also serves as a creative director in an accredited Chennai based advertising agency that he helped co found in 2002.
