LEADERSHIP AND MENTORING: “I inspire my team members to be successful by leading through my own actions,” says Ash Batra, COO of Saturn Infotech, Inc. “I support them by brainstorming with them and thinking of out-of-the-box solutions. I help them identify areas of improvement and recognize their successes.”
QUICK TIP: “Love what you do, do what you love and lead by example.”
OVERCOMING CHALLENGES: The greatest challenge Batra faced was surviving the 2008 recession. “We all faced an uphill struggle to keep the sales levels up and costs down while maintaining our service standards,” he says. “We successfully rode out the recession without any layoffs.” The processes implemented during this time ultimately resulted in a significantly healthier bottom line.
DRIVING VALUE: One of the biggest and most impactful goals for Batra and CEO Steve Vibhute has been to build a boutique brand in Oracle technologies. Today, Saturn Infotech is an Oracle Platinum Partner. “We have shown tremendous growth in terms of revenue and were ranked three times in Inc. magazine,” says Batra.
