Small to Medium Enterprises and Executives from the Indian Diaspora have been rapidly growing their networking base in the last five years and the Indian Executive Club seems to have had everything to do with it. On the 1st of May, a Milestone had arrived in 2015 when the IEC celebrated going into its 5th year for the Indian Executive Club Awards.

Over 60 of the Club’s closest associates and many of its members attended the 2015 Indian Executive Club Awards launch Night at Pitcher Partners. Vinay Sharma, Chairman of the Indian Executive Club, paid tribute to the level of support and commitment from Pitcher Partners over the last 4 years. He narrated the story that unfolded with a leap of faith by Pitcher Partners in the year 2012.

“What would normally have taken a running track record of success for an organisation to offer support, in 2012 took a sincere leap of faith by Pitcher Partners towards the IEC Awards. They believed in what we were trying to achieve to uplift and recognise accomplishments within the Indian Diaspora.” said Vinay Sharma, Chairman, IEC

IEC had Rohini Kappadath (Director, Cross Border Business, Pitcher Partners) and Vijaya Vaithyanath (CEO, City of Yarra) to officially declare the 5th Indian Executive Club Awards nominations open.
