Manipal Global Education Services (MaGE) has announced the appointment of S Vaitheeswaran as its MD & CEO. He takes over from Anand Sudarshan who has led the company for the last six years, and has steered the group commendably to become a key player in this space both in India and Globally. Anand will continue to be member of the Board of Directors of MaGE, while pursuing his other interests.
Vaitheeswaran has been part of MaGE since last September as its Chief Operating Officer and has brought with him expertise in the areas of operational & business excellence, both in Indian and global markets. Prior to joining MaGE, Vaitheeswaran was associated with Infosys BPO for over six years.

His experience at Eicher Motors saw him cultivate expertise in the areas of Sales and Marketing, Supply Chain Management, Operations and International Business.
Remarking on the change, Anand said “This has been in my radar for a while now and has been part of the succession plan at MaGE. Vaithee has been very quick to settle down, and, the Board and I are confident he is the right leader to steer the company to greater heights. I congratulate Vaithee, and I wish him & his team the very best”.
Speaking on his new role at MaGE, Vaitheeswaran said “MaGE has over the last few years forayed into diverse segments and grown rapidly. At the same pace, it has leveraged technology to empower students with its quality education and innovative learning methodologies. MaGE is now poised to move in its next phase of enhancing its global footprint with campus based units & education services. I am excited and look forward to contributing to its success globally, in addition to new growth levels in the domestic markets in corporate education, training and continuous learning space.”
