"Imagination is everything. If we can imagine a future, we can create it, if we can create that future, others will live in it. That is the essence of success"
Subroto Bagchi is the Chairman of the MindTree Board of Directors.
Subroto Bagchi co-founded MindTree in 1999, and started as the Chief Operating Officer and member of the Board. Soon after inception, MindTree was hit by the global economic slowdown and 9/11. In response, he moved to the US and helped the leadership team stay together through the difficult years. During this time, he articulated a new positioning for MindTree as the best mid-sized company from India, which later became a reality.
During the first phase of the company, he was instrumental in articulating its mission, vision and values. He led the leadership development, marketing and knowledge management initiatives that differentiated the company from the very beginning. MindTree’s distinctive physical locations reflect his thought leadership. He is also the face of the company’s outreach beyond business. In 2007, he was part of the apex team that led MindTree from an idea to IPO.
Post-IPO, in 2008, Bagchi took on the role of Gardener at MindTree. In this new role, he focused full-time on the Top-100 leaders at MindTree to expand leadership capacity beyond the founding team. In 2010, he was appointed vice chairman to the Board.
Bagchi is on the Board of Governors of the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore and a member of the Governing Council of the Software Technology Parks of India. He is a well-known writer, having penned a number of widely read columns in national newspapers and magazines. In 2011, he has been acclaimed India’s No. 1 bestselling business author.
