Skin in the GAME: Thanmai Viswanath eyes the next milestone for her family business
Thanmai Viswanath had grown up seeing her father running their family business — Bangalore Valves Pvt Limited — with a fierce passion. Thanmai left her corporate job in the US in 2016 and joined her father in running the company, which manufactures aerospace and gas turbine parts.
“I had loved my (corporate) job, but there wasn’t too much variety. Also, I had been helping my father on the side with marketing. We got a phenomenal response from customers and it created a lot of excitement, especially from customers we were exporting to. I realised that I had more potential,” says Thanmai.
Thanmai, Director, Bangalore Turbine Parts, received a purchase order of Rs 82 lakhs.
Post the sales and marketing lessons by RAIN Group, Thanmai went back and spoke to her previoius customers to understand where her company can provide value. On speaking to one of her older customers, the next time that they needed to place an order, they immediately thought of Thanmai.
