Dr. Jagannath Shenoi: Profile

Soft spoken, kind and humble to a fault, Dr. Jagannath Shenoi, 64, is a person moulded differently. Unaffected either by the riches he supervises or the challenges he has had to face as the person at the helm of Mysuru’s iconic Mangalore Ganesh Beedi Works, Jagannath Shenoi’s philanthropy is legendary and his contribution to Mysuru invaluable.

A person who is averse to his large hearted charitable activities being made public, many only know of Dr. Shenoi’s acumen as a shrewd businessman after emerging at the helm of affairs of Mangalore Ganesh Beedi Works on Jan. 7, 1995, and his handling of a business vulnerable to government policies, regulations and growing health awareness.

His contribution to Mysuru in particular and Karnataka in general is immense. As the Government began to exert controls on the beedi industry, he diversified his business interests, keeping pace with the changing times, and creating more employment opportunities. DMS Technologies Pvt. Ltd. at Belavadi of which he is the Director, is today one of the top PCB manufacturers, and gives employment to many. A socially-conscious entrepreneur, Dr. Shenoi operates a solar electricity plant at Tumakuru. In the arena of education, he is the Chairman of GSSS Institute of Engineering and Technology for Women. He also manages the Govinda Rao Memorial School at Lakshmipuram in Mysuru offering education from Nursery to SSLC.

Piano concert
