About Hitendra

A Professor, Entrepreneur, and a Business Professional

Before joining as a Professor at #1 supply chain program in the country at the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, Hitendra has worked for  Ernst & Young and for A.T. Kearney spearheading strategy, supply chain and e-commerce efforts for numerous Fortune 100 companies and start-ups.  Consulting was followed by Microsoft where Hitendra  has managed $400 million global P&Ls. 

Hitendra then decided to become an entrepreneur at the height of recession in 2008 (duh!?) started 3 companies with revenues topping $100 million and generating employment to over 2000 people.  One company failed, and in his opinion gave him the the biggest heartburns and most astute lessons!
