B.V.R. Mohan Reddy

Executive Chairman, Cyient Ltd (formerly Infotech Enterprises)

My first role model My father, Mr Nagi Reddy. He was the first graduate in and around the village where he was born and went on to become a police officer

My first job

Senior management trainee at Shriram Refrigeration Industries Ltd, part of the DCM Shriram Group then, in 1974

My first boss

K.R. Chandran, Deputy General Manager at Shriram Refrigeration

My first promotion

Becoming a Sub-Departmental Superintendent in just nine months, as against the typical two-year training stint that people had to undergo before getting promoted

My first disappointment

I started this company (Cyient or Infotech Enterprises) 22 years back when I was 40. I clearly had an opportunity to begin my entrepreneurial journey when I was 30. That I did not take it and began 10 years later has been a disappointment in my life

As told to E. Kumar Sharma
