Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with U.S. counterpart Donald Trump in a bid to strengthen ties between the two nations via The US-India Strategic Partnership Forum.
According to Times of India, one of the initiatives of the meeting was to promote business, startups, innovation, and education while American businessmen lauded Modi for what he has been able to achieve for India in just three years. Additionally, the issue of H-1B visas that are used by Indian engineers and programmers to enter the U.S. has also been resolved.
In fact, some of the big companies in America are being run by Indian-born CEOs. Probably one of the more familiar leaders in the tech industry is Google CEO Sundar Pichai. Deccan Chronicle reported that Pichai received a $200 million salary for his work last year. He is widely credited as the one who increased sales via core advertising and YouTube business. However, he is not the only one who is making a difference in the U.S.
Here are five Indian-American bosses that paved and secured their paths to success in their respective companies.
