Vintron today needs no introduction. It is successful and the

success can be attributed to the young blood that runs in its management's

lifeline-and one of them is Manish Agrawal, Director (Operations), Vintron

Informatics Ltd.

It began when he took his electronics and power degree from

Nagpur and came down to Delhi in 1989. Under the stewardship of RK Gupta,

Chairman of Vintron, Agrawal carried the organization from strength to strength.

It was an amalgamation of two like-minded individuals who had the same goals and

ambitions. And since then, Agrawal has been instrumental in bringing Vintron to

where it is today.

Consider this: when he joined Vintron, the company had

revenues amounting to just about Rs 70 crore. And in 10 years, the revenue has

gone up to Rs 231 crore, a growth of 225 percent. Last year itself, the company

grew by a good 36 percent. Along the way, Agrawal has built up an enviable

infrastructure comprising of 12 branch offices, 14 warehouses and 241 service

centers spread across 150 locations.

Perhaps his single biggest achievement is the channel

network, which he has built up from scratch. Currently, Vintron boasts of 2,500

channel partners spread across 250 cities all over the country-primarily B and C

class cities, but where the major growth is happening-for its peripheral product

range comprising of motherboards, keyboards, monitors, speakers, mouse, modems

and UPS systems. In addition, Vintron also has 450 channel partners exclusively

for its PC range.

At just 33 years today, Agrawal is a seasoned marketing

person. Spearheading group activities and responsible for orchestrating most of

its success, he can very well sit back and view the result of his complete

involvement in the organizations growth with satisfaction. But he is not resting

on his laurels, as he is not satisfied with his achievements. Each year he

stretches his goals and then makes sure that he achieves them-only to extend

them further the next year.
