FAMILY BUSINESS OWNERS
Darius Bahadurji is the Chairman & Managing Director of Vantage. He and his wife grew up in Calcutta, and shifted to Chennai to launch Vantage. It was initially a very basic set-up with just two employees, big ambitions and slow, small projects. Through sheer grit, hard work and a few committed clients, the business gained momentum, with branches in Coimbatore and Madurai in Tamilnadu, and further in Bangalore, Hyderabad and Cochin covering the Southern Region, as well as in Mumbai and Pune.
The secret of his position in the industry is his indomitable will to succeed, through the toughest of times, nurturing and mentoring his team to stand their ground and set examples, while the company moves from success to success and generation to generation.
A philanthropist by nature, he is the benefactor of many educational institutions, old age homes, orphanages and charitable organizations, besides supporting the less privileged amongst his staff. He is a pillar of his community, offering and providing support, often even before it’s need is expressed. He has an innate ability to connect with people, relate to individual circumstances and offer counsel and support. This quality is brought forth in the long and loyal service of his employees.
