SIP’s team comprises of passionate leaders who come with invaluable experience, which has helped the organization grow and branch out for 12 years in 20 States, with over 700 franchisees spread across more than 275 cities & towns.

Dinesh Victor, a simple and a warm person may look like a man of few words, but this Marathon runner, voracious reader, travel buff, hard core debater and a chess enthusiast, is extremely articulate and communicative when talking about the spirit of entrepreneurship and his venture, SIP Academy India Pvt Ltd, which he established in 2003.

Born in 1971 in Tirunelveli District, Dinesh is from a typical middle-class South Indian family. As his father was serving as a Wing Commander in the Indian Air-force, Dinesh did his schooling in 8 cities across India, which gave him the experience of meeting people from different and varied cultures. He was also the National Talent Scholar in 1986 (CBSE board). Dinesh graduated as a Chemical Engineer from the premier Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay in 1992 and got his management degree in Marketing from the prestigious Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad in 1994. He not only excelled in studies but also considers education one of the most important tools to realise personal and professional goals.

It was considered the next natural step to take up a job, and he did. He started his corporate career as a Product Manager with Godrej’s FMCG division and was instrumental in the launch of Godrej hair dye sachet, which built a market share of 15 per cent within a year of launch. As the Area Sales manager with the same company in Chennai, Dinesh increased business by 30 per cent.

The finance sector soon beckoned him with his working with ANZ Grindlays Bank and Standard Chartered Bank, wherein he functioned as Relationship Banker, handling priority clients and then moved to head South Region for Mortgages.

Dinesh’s inner urge to do something differently and make a difference in the Society, resulted in moving out of his lucrative Bank job to take a plunge into start up business ventures with his close aides. He and his friends , experimented in dot.com industry and later initiated to set up a credit bureau for consumer industry.

The team then finally settled to focus in education services and established GELS (Genius Education & Learning System ) in 2001, a skill based program for children based on Abacus training. Dinesh partnered with the person who brought the concept of Abacus to India first in 1998. Dinesh became the Managing Director of GELs and less than 2 years, he built up a team of 75 new franchisees and worked on the ground and learned how to make franchisees to be profitable. In early 2003, Dinesh had to come out of his alliance due to non-alignment of his vision with the rest of the Management.

Dinesh Victor, then set up his own Company, SIP Academy India P Ltd in August 2003, with the support of the Malaysian Principal of GELS , 40 franchisees, 5 State Heads , 5 employees from his previous team and with couple of his colleagues joining him . He enjoyed the trust and confidence of his team who worked passionately with him and went ahead to build an Organisation which stands for its Vision & Values.

With SIP Academy India , Dinesh Victor says that he has found his calling, since not only does it give wings to the entrepreneur in him, but also satisfies his urge to do something which aligns with his Vision & Values. SIP Academy not only trains children in skill development but as an allied outcome, helps women to become economically independent by being business partners , franchisees & trainers.

Looking back Dinesh has no regrets on his spurning lucrative career offers to work abroad, taking utmost satisfaction in his being able to give back to the country albeit in a small measure for the ‘world-class ‘ education he was a recipient of at the IIT-B and IIM-A. No wonder amongst all our founding fathers he tilts in favour of Pandit Nehru who gave his free nation and her people the opportunity to match the world with un-enviable facilities in science and management at a pittance!

Now the team lead by Dinesh Victor, consists of more than 50 Senior Managers, 65 Officers, 800+ franchisees, 2700+ trainers who are passionately aligned to the Vision of SIP Academy India , in making a significant impact on the mental potential of the children.

Dinesh is also a Marathon runner and has participated in full Marathons in Mumbai and Chennai for 4 times. He is a part of the dynamic running group “Dream Runners” based out of Chennai and since 2012 they organise Half Marathon (DRHM) runs in Chennai , influencing 400-500 new runners to experience long distance running. For 2015, Dinesh was actively involved as Associate Race Director and organised one of India’s quality running event in July wherein more than 4700 people participated from different cities and countries too.

Dinesh , being a voracious reader , completes minimum 8-10 books every year ranging from Business Management , Entrepreneurship , World History , Sociology , Neuro- Science etc. He has successfully embedded his learning to his team and has designed the SIP’s people processes and working culture , based on this knowledge.
