Deepak Garg, CEO of SANY Heavy Industry India, was honoured with the Distinguished Alumnus Young Achiever’s Award at the XLRI’s Annual Homecoming 2017, the two-day alumni meet held recently in Jamshedpur. More than 250 former students from 1972, 1973 and 1977 batches came from different parts of the country to walk down the memory lane.
Garg was recognised as an outstanding young entrepreneur who is taking the organisation and the country forward by his sheer perseverance and hard work. He is from the 2004-05 batch and has an EPGDGM degree in Marketing & Finance. As the CEO of SANY India, Garg has numerous achievements under his belt. In a short span, he led SANY South Asia to be the No.1 in cranes and piling rigs and made the company the fastest growing in the CE space in the country. He is also instrumental in engineering numerous MOUs with state governments to establish infrastructure projects using the latest cost-efficient technologies.
Commenting on the occasion, Garg said, “It is indeed an honour to be nominated for this award and winning it at my alma mater is nothing less than overwhelming. The importance of good education can never be overstated and I got that at XLRI. I see this recognition as your belief that I am going in the right path. I share this award with my mentors, advisors, teachers, partners, friends and all those who have inspired me in this beautiful journey. I also take this opportunity to congratulate all my colleagues here who have received recognitions today.”
