The November 13, 2006, edition of Chemical & Engineering News featured a very complimentary full-page write-up (login required) on the entrepreneurial success of Shri Thanedar. It’s a story of ambition, hard work, and likely not just a little talent. From 18-year-old Bachelor’s chemist in India, he is now CEO of Chemir Analytical Services in St Louis, now at $24M/yr in revenues.
It’s an interesting and satisfying story of “local” chemist makes good. Worth a read if you didn’t catch it in the hardcopy.
