Businesses are not
run on emotions
With just $,1,700 in cash and some credits cards and a dream, Rajesh
K Soin sets up a successful business in US.
Financial Express -- December 18, 2005
Delhiite by birth, Rajesh K Soin is the chairman of board of MTC
Technologies and CEO and chairman of Corbus, which has been providing
consulting, IT and BPO services to its global clientele for almost
Soin graduated from Delhi University in 1969 with a bachelor's
degree in mechanical engineering. After graduation, he went to the
US with barely enough money to get into Bradley University, where
he earned a masters in industrial engineering in 1971, while working
as a research assistant. Over the years Soin has continued his postgraduate
studies in business and finance at Bradely University and Illinois
State University. He is also pursuing advance management programmes
at Harvard University and Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
In 1978, Soin and his wife Indu became American citizens. Soin
started his first business when he was 22. He has two children.
Soin started his business in 1971 with Firestone Tyre and Rubber
Company as an industrial engineer and worked at various production
facilities until 1978. Then he joined Williams International as
manager of corporate systems. While at Willams, his responsibilities
included looking after the departments of industrial engineering,
operations planning, scheduling and management systems. Here, Soin
tried his hand at a couple of different business ventures and like
most entrepreneurs, it took him a while to find his niche.
In 1984, Soin decided to start another business and to devote full
time to the venture, which he named MTC. Soin and Indu started MTC
with $1,700 in cash, a handful of credit cards, and a dream. MTC
was founded with the idea of providing engineering and technical
services to the department of defence, but quickly became an incubator
that has spawned numerous businesses in a variety of industries.
Soin says, “To run a successful business one needs to put
in a lot of effort. If I had strictly followed the basics of management,
then I would not have been successful. Moreover, had I started at
a younger age, I would have been more successful. We plan to expand
the base of Corbus in India.”
Looking back, he thinks the most “influential persons”
in his life have been “my parents. Whatever I am today is
because of my father. My mother on the other hand has been responsible
for imbibing family values in me. When I landed in the US for the
first time, my pocket was picked and I had $3. I had to spend 15-20
days with that money. I survived on boiled potatoes and sandwiches.
Those days matured me and made me confident to take on the world.”
He attributes his success also to his employees. “If I am
successful, it is because of my employees. I have been very lucky
to get good, talented people to work with. I work for 10-12 hours
a day. I get up around 5 am, spend an hour and half to read newspapers
and then exercise for 45 minutes. This is a routine I follow without
fail every day.”
Family seems to play a major role in his life. “I now spend
more time with my wife. Family is very important for me. When I
have to devote more time to them, then I make it a point to cancel
my appointments. Among my other hobbies, I love to fly. I am a sometime-pilot.
Flying is a very risky hobby, according to my wife, but I love it.
I have several aircraft and a jet. It is a wonderful feeling altogether
when you are in the midst of clouds. I also love water sports and
cooking. Whenever a thanksgiving dinner has to be made, then I am
the one who does it. Usually I cook elaborate dinners at least two-three
times a year. In summers I love cooking outside.” Soin loves
to read biographies. Among his favourite books are those by Stan
As a professional, Soin follows certain basic principles. “You
should never bring emotions into work. Businesses are not run on
emotions. Professionals should manage business. My sons are on boards
of my company, but they are consulted only when we have meetings.”
Soin visits Vaishno Devi once a year. “We organise jagrans
at home occasionally. Beyond that I don’t pray on a daily
basis. I believe in the Supreme Being. My wife is very religious.
We have a temple at home.”
Soin does a lot of charity work as well. “Community work
is my passion, he says.”
