In an exclusive interaction with CEO Insights, Sanjay Agarwal elucidates his professional traits and Globe Capacitors.

Could you give a brief account of your professional background and experiences? What is the motivation that fuels your daily routines?
I joined my family business after completing my engineering degree from Manipal University in1988, which had around 100 employees and a turnover of 5crore. Upon joining, I developed a strong fascination for companies in Korea, Europe, and Japan, and I aimed to explore innovative technologies and discover new approaches to enhance capacitor production and cost effectiveness. Gradually, we expanded our exports to the Middle East, followed by expansion into the US, Europe, and South America.

Every day, my mindset revolves around doing something different
and better. As I approach my 57th birthday, I am motivated to continue working tirelessly until the end. This drive pushes me to be present at the company every morning, spend maximum hours working, and lead from the front. I do not believe in simply sitting back and relaxing as the CEO or MD. Instead, I am a workaholic who enjoys working alongside my team, whether it's on the shop floor or in the boardrooms.

Tell us about the unique experiences Manipal Institute of Technology offers and what did you learn from the campus beyond academics?
Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT) offered unique experiences that went beyond academics. It taught us the value of cultivating strong bonds, fostering loyalty, and nurturing leadership skills. Personally, MIT transformed me from an introverted individual to a confident person with global friendships. MIT alumni are prominent leaders worldwide, and this global presence fascinated me. It empowered us to become resilient leaders, fostering a strong team spirit. It also created a deep connection with our alma mater. Being an MITan carries weight and prompts people to go out of their way to help one another. This was evident when I secured an appointment with Minister of State Mr. Rajiv Chandrasekhar by mentioning my MIT affiliation.

every one takes pride in their work. I prioritize being a human before being a successful businessman because building relationships is crucial for success.
