Mumbai: The Mumbai Mudrak Sangh (MMS) on Tuesday felicitated Gautham Pai, promoter and managing director of The Manipal Group, with the Lifetime Achievement Award on the occasion of MMS Printer’s Day celebration. Maharashtra Industries Minister Subhash Desai presented the award.

Mr. Pai, a student of printing technology at the Manipal Institute of Technology, inherited the business in 2004 from his father. He is the youngest recipient.

The scroll of honour said that he transformed an order-specific Manipal Press into an end-to-end print solution provider — Manipal Technologies, considered as one of the best in the business. Subhasis Ganguly, formerly with Pearsons India and who has worked with Mr. Pai for nearly eight years said: “Gautham is a young and energetic entrepreneur and a visionary who dreams big and turns those dreams into reality. He is a down-to-earth and friendly person with a cool head on his shoulders.”

Manipal Technologies is also the only company to win the PrintWeek India’s ‘Company of the Year’ award twice.

Under his leadership, Manipal Technologies (The print arm of Manipal Group) has entered into a strategic partnership with Quad/Graphics, Inc. a global leader in print and related multichannel solutions in 2012 and merged with packaging specialist Utility to form Manipal Utility Packaging Solutions in 2014.

Mr. Pai has turned his family business into a professionally managed, well diversified business conglomerate having a global footprint, within a decade.

In his acceptance speech, Mr. Pai said: “The award is a recognition of our achievements as a company.” A Lifetime Achievement Award is given at the end of the career, but this would in no way stop him. “Our commitment to success has brought us here. The future is challenging and I am positive about it.”
