Give a brief account of your professionalbackground and experience.
I have done Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering from Sir C R Reddy College of Engineering in Eluru. With a keen interest in RoboticsI landed a job as an automation engineer soon after graduating. Although I had no prior work experience before my postgraduation I faced several challenges while working. However, two things that helped me shape my career were my Master’s in Mechatronics, which taught me multi-tasking without limiting myself to any specific subject, and a great mentor at work who gave me the freedom to think and make decisions.As a fresher making big capital equipment decisions can be challenging, but my determination to delve deeper into technical aspects paved the way for my growth in the company, and I soon got promoted to a managerial position within three years.

Pursuing my passion was really exciting. Soon I was leading the composite tooling team (the heart of the company where any project starts) implementing some elements of Robotics and Automation. With almost a decade of experience in the Middle East, I decided to return to India and do some thing for my nation, which led to Triovision Composite Technologies’ inception.

Well, its my passion for technology that motivates me every day. Conclusively, I am always experimenting and thinking to invent
new things.

I strive to inspire and motivate my team to work towards a common vision. I believe it's crucial for team members to understand our expectations, so they can begin working towards achieving them. In many cases, i ve observed that management expectations are not always effectively communicated to the lower levels of the organization, however, i place great importance on encouraging open communication to make team members feel comfortable and provide constructive feedback for continuous improvement. Effective leadership involves setting a clear vision and leading by example to foster a culture of trust, growth, and collaboration within the team.

Building one's own organization is a dream for many, but it requires hard work and perseverance to turn that dream into reality.Passion a strong product definition, and confidence are essential for a successful start. The first three years of any organization can be the most challenging but also the most instructive, helping us to grow and strengthen in all aspects. Market swings such as demonetization and the COVID-19 pandemic, can disrupt even the best-laid plans, so it's important to be adaptable and diversify as needed. In this industry, where changes happen rapidly and frequently, it's essential to keep learning and embrace change.
