Founder and president of the BC-INDIA Business Network, Vivek Savkur, announced the appointment of the new president who is associate vice president of External Relations at Simon Fraser University (SFU), British Columbia, Canada.
After nearly a decade as president, Savkur will stand down on April 1. "It's time for a change of leadership. Sobhana is a bridge builder with origins in India and Canada. Sobhana is well-positioned to lead BC-IBN as a senior leader in the postsecondary sector, a community leader, a mentor to several young CEOs and entrepreneurs, adviser to many organizations in Canada and India, and mother of two young entrepreneurs, and I look forward to staying connected to BC-IBN as President Emeritus," Savkur said.
