Mr. A V Asvini Kumar - Chairman and Managing Director
With an MBA from one of India's Top Business schools, Asvini has many years of experience in the IT services business, including 15 years as an entrepreneur. He has successfully pioneered the outsourced independent domain focused test services model to help Global 500 firms like Citi Group to improve quality, compress timelines and lower costs, thereby boosting returns from existing IT services budgets.

An alumnus of the Osmania University and IIM, Bangalore (1981), Asvini co-founded and ran a startup for 2 years (1981-83), before moving to IIM - B for a year to set up and upgrade their student and faculty computing facilities. He subsequently had a 4-year stint with PSI Bull as Product Support Manager handling large clients like ONGC. He founded Thinksoft with the objective of providing value added IT consulting services, mainly in the areas of requirements testing, documentation and domain consulting. In 1998, his pioneering efforts towards creating an India-based independent test service model was proved a success, when Citi Group became the first client to use Thinksoft's India based test centers in one of its large Global flagship projects. In mid-1998, Asvini reorganized Thinksoft as a company. In early 2000, a UK based venture fund backed Thinksoft's growth plans, thus propelling it as a Global player in its chosen area.

A recipient of many academic scholarships and professional awards, Asvini lives in Bangalore with his wife and son. He is an avid reader. He also likes to swim, trek, and listen to music.
