There’s a reason why I was looking forward to meeting up with Ramesh Ramanathan, CEO of Club Mahindra. I’m always in awe of folks who dream big and more importantly, see that dream work. Ramesh is the main person who started Club Mahindra from scratch and it has now grown to become the Number One resort chain in India.
I’ve known Ramesh since the Sify days. He was the head of consumer Internet division then and did quite well until he decided to get back to the company he founded.
I went to the colorful office of Club Mahindra and we had an interesting two hour meeting with him. A condensed 25 minute video of our conversation can be found in the video below.
Disclosure: I’m an external consultant for Club Mahindra and help them with social media strategies.
