Meet the Leader
Dr. Ganesh Devaraj, Managing Director and CEO– Ganesh founded Soliton in 1998, and has since established the company as the leader in India in the business areas in which it operates. Soliton started business as the first Alliance Member of National Instruments (www.ni.com) in India, and Ganesh introduced Virtual Instrumentation, a concept pioneered by Texas based National Instruments, to manufacturing industries in the region. In parallel he also developed customers in the US for its offshore Virtual Instrumentation Software (LabVIEW) development services. The revenue grew at an average annual compounded rate of 60% during the first seven years. During this period, Soliton also established itself as one of the worlds most innovative Virtual Instrumentation System developers by winning the most prestigious global award in this field a record three times (2000, 2001, and 2004). Soliton started a products division in 2005, and became the first company in India to manufacture Machine Vision Cameras and Smart Cameras. Soliton has established itself as the leading machine vision company in India. In all, Soliton has received over 25 technology awards for its innovative work and has built up an outstanding reputation for Quality, Integrity, and Customer Satisfaction. Ganesh was selected as one of the ‘101 Successful Entrepreneurs of Tamil Nadu’ by CII in 2008. He also was profiled by the India Today magazine as a new economy player to watch in 2001. Ganesh also serves on the Board of Directors of ELGI Equipments Ltd (www.elgi.com).
Previously, Ganesh worked as a Project Scientist at V I Engineering, Inc., Michigan, a leading National Instruments Alliance Member in the US. Ganesh received his Ph.D. in Theoretical Particle Physics and M.S. in Electrical Engineering, both from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and his B.E. in Electronics and Communication Engineering from the PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore.
From the age of 15, for a period of six years, Ganesh was passionately involved in tuning racing engines and racing cars and he won the Grand Prix in the most competitive racing category in India in 1987, 88, and 89. Today his interests include education where he is trying to convince engineering colleges to reduce the amount of content “taught” to students and focus instead on enabling deeper understanding of the basics and the ability to apply their knowledge to solve real world problems.
