The 36 year old V. Pratish Devadoss, managing Director of VGN Group, is young, energetic and aggressive in nature. He is the only son of Mr. V.N. Devadoss, Chairman of VGN Group.
Having studied MBA in Cardiff University in the UK, entered into real estate business in 2004 and he is the Managing Director of VGN Property Developers Pvt. Ltd., Chennai and also floated VGN Infra to effectively design and monitor the construction activities to deliver quality products to end customers.
Ever since he completed his studies he has been coining the idea of becoming a promoter and developer of properties in order to create a visibility to ‘VGN’ brand. This is possible only by building large residential developments like gated communities, luxury apartments, and iconic buildings in the heart of the city.
Being a pragmatic person, he ventured into land acquisition of prime properties in Guindy and Nungambakkam to realize his dream of developing multi-storied apartments to cater to the need of luxury segments apart from various large residential developments in various parts of Chennai. Under his leadership, the turnover of the company has increased from Rs. 100 Crores to around 900 Crores.
His motto is to help thousands of families to realize their dream to own a ‘Home’ and also providing exponential returns on their investment in VGN properties in Chennai. Under his leadership, VGN has built, delivered around 6500 homes and another 10,000 homes in the pipeline.
His aim is to build a great organization and create an environment that empowers the key people to make decisions, and recognize the efforts irrespective of the outcome. He believes in giving freedom to express ideas, take decisions and make no mistakes in building a great culture in his organization.
He believes in “One man one job” and set up exclusive departments in his organization and introduced SAP to fullest extent possible which is quite unlikely in Real Estate Industry. In brick and mortar industry which is B to C and likely to occur human errors, he has introduced SAP to automate the processes in all facets of operations in his organization.
He is a great admirer of sports especially Cricket, sponsored ‘Chennai Super Kings’ in 2014 and also formed a cricket team in the name of VGN and this team won many trophies.
He is very keen to introduce corporate social responsibility (CSR) in his business approach that contributes to sustainable development by delivering economic, social and environmental benefits for all stakeholders in the project.
