Achiever's Success Story

Mr. Ashish Saxena a Leader from the Heart in a Journey of Excellence

Mr. Ashish Saxena embodies the belief that leadership is a dynamic “journey,” marked by a profound responsibility to cultivate exceptional teams and organizations. Drawing inspiration from the wisdom of Ted Lasso, his leadership principles are grounded in trust, belief, teamwork, candor, and a growth mindset.

From a modest beginning in India, where electricity was a luxury, to overseeing a business unit generating nearly $1B USD in revenue, his life story is a testament to resilience, learning, and the satisfaction of contributing to team success and fostering high-performance environments.

Starting from the shop floor of a bustling aluminum manufacturing plant, Mr. Ashish Saxena has navigated an impressive 30-year journey to reach the heights of global technology consulting. As the President of Innova’s Retail, Energy, Manufacturing, Transportation, and Technology (REMTT) Strategic Business Unit, he brings both passion and tenacity to spearhead the unit’s journey towards verticalization, driving transformative change across retail, energy, manufacturing, transportation, and technology sectors.

With a solid foundation built through managing complex delivery and sales engagements at TCS during periods of rapid expansion, he elevated his career to lead Wipro’s $1B manufacturing and hi-tech unit, overseeing a team of 15,000 skilled professionals. Here, he diligently improved business unit performance, fostered a culture of excellence, and refined portfolio strategies.

Today, at Innova, he is committed to propelling REMTT’s verticalization journey with unwavering dedication. He firmly believes that genuine purpose, a clear vision, and values-driven leadership are the drivers for exceptional growth.

His dedication extends beyond the boardroom, as he actively mentors youth and champions women leaders through his involvement with organizations like the Michigan Council of Women in Technology and Forbes Business Development Council. He lives by the motto of “leading from the heart,” infusing every endeavor with authenticity and compassion.

As a lifelong learner, Mr. Ashish’s pursuit of knowledge ranges from his alma mater HBTI Kanpur to earning an MBA from Rutgers Business School and completing an Advanced Management Program at Wharton Business School. 

He takes great pleasure in sharing the hard-earned insights gained throughout his journey, whether through contributions to publications like Harvard Business Review and Forbes or engaging audiences as a speaker. For him, true success is not only about achieving tangible results but also nurturing enduring relationships, even amidst challenges. This holistic approach has been instrumental in his unconventional rise to the top of his profession.
