Rolls-Royce India and South Asia President Kishore Jayaraman speaks with Business Today about his journey to success.

MY FIRST ROLE MODEL
My parents gave me a strong moral sense. My father's actions and advices have made a great impact on my life. He always emphasised that self-praise is for losers, one should be passionate about work, aim for perfection and deliver the best, stand for something, and never forget the beginnings

MY FIRST JOB
After pursuing Master's in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Oklahoma, I started my career with GE Drive Systems as a Process Models Design Engineer

MY FIRST BOSS
Michael Kress, who hired me to be a programmer in the Forestry lab at Oklahoma State University in 1988.

MY FIRST PROMOTION
Project Manager for Material Handling Systems at GE Industrial Systems in 1996.

MY FIRST DISAPPOINTMENT
My inability to become an aviator, my first passion.
