Saumen Chakraborty named chairman of ESC

NEW DELHI: Intellisys Technologies & Research CEO and managing Director Saumen Chakraborty has taken over as chairman of Electronics and Computer Software Export Promotion Council (ESC), for the period 2015-2017.

He was elected as chairman in the first meeting of the newly elected members of the Executive Committee held in Delhi recently. Elin Electronics (New Delhi) director B S Sethia and I2T2 India (Hyderabad) chairman Prasad VSS Garapati were elected as vice chairmen for the same period.

ESC is India’s largest electronics and computer software trade promotion association with a pan-India membership base of over 2200 and its focus is on IT exports. ESC in partnership with its members has been able to address many of the challenges in the export front effectively and position the industry to reap the benefit from the next IT growth wave. The Council is endeavoring to create an enabling environment for the IT industry, SMEs in particular, rebranding the industry to showcase their expertise, innovations, and also aligning with the Government both at the Centre and States’ level to create a healthy export friendly environment.

Chakraborty said, “Currently India is in the cusp of a digital and manufacturing revolution. Roll out of government programmes like Digital India, Make in India, Financial Inclusion etc. is creating vast spaces for virtual and brick and mortar industries to grow and support each other. Our effort in ESC will be to leverage these opportunities to create quantum leaps in the IT segment, particularly in the export efforts.”

“ESC is fortunate to have Chakraborty as the chairman at a time when the IT industry is gearing up for permeating the culture of innovation across the spectrum to enable India to stay ahead in the ICT industry. He can give a proactive leadership to the industry in strengthening Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) of India's knowledge based IT industry, both in products and solutions, which is the need of the hour along with market oriented R&D to meet for customer expectations of the overseas markets. That will help leapfrog India's IT exports in the coming years,” ESC executive director DK Sareen said.

A technocrat with around 23 years of experience in the IT industry, Chakraborty leads a team of experts drawn across geographies to revolutionize the whole concept of video conferencing on a global scale.
