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.
