The Only IIT Alumnus Knighted by Queen is from KGP--Arun Sarin

Dear Reader,
KGP-alumnus, Mr. Arun Sarin (1975/B.Tech/MT/Azad) is the only alumnus of any IIT that has been knighted by the Queen!

With over 30 years of experience leading some of the world's largest telecommunications companies, Mr. Sarin began his career as a management consultant. In 1984, he moved to Pacific Telesis Group in San Francisco. He was instrumental in the company acquiring the first cellular licenses in the US and in Germany and a PCN license in the UK. He was subsequently appointed CFO and Chief Strategy Officer at Pacific Bell before moving on to become Vice President and General Manager, San Francisco Bay Area Telephone Company, a Pacific Bell division with 12,000 employees.

Sarin became the CEO of the US/Pacific region of Vodafone AirTouch Plc, where he managed group operations for the group in the US, Asia, and Australia. During this time he was also responsible for the Global Technology division, which handled the introduction of wireless internet services.

He was named an Honorary Knight of the British Empire for his services to the communications industry in 2010. A recognition that was both earned and well-deserved--congratulations, Arun!
