Arun’s passion for financial technology recognized the need for a world class product powerhouse way back in the early 90s. With his inspiring leadership, design thinking and engineering acumen he has been able to put India on the Intellectual Property world map. He has been one of the early propagators of Design Thinking in the information technology space in the country. He believes that good design helps drive a transformation in businesses, from being order takers to agenda setters.
The FinTech 8012 Design Center, the world’s first design center for financial institutions is a clear manifestation of Design Thinking and is innate in the work ethos of every employee in the organisation. Arun anchors ‘UnMukt’ workshops for employees, industry leaders and influencers. While Intellect symbolizes Arun’s dream and his mission, his social initiatives showcase his larger-than-life commitment.
A social engineer by nature, Arun has been working towards creating a better community. Ullas Trust, a signature social initiative started two decades ago has grown along with the organisation. This brainchild of Arun provides vital professional skills to adolescent children across the country nurturing the “Can do” spirit among the young minds.
Continuing his Social Connect initiatives, Arun has recently launched ‘Project Samriddhi’. Samriddhi is dedicated to holistic human development in India, through the design and development of projects that are sustainable and capable of scale to positively impact the larger population.
