In a heartbreaking incident during Vistex’s silver jubilee celebrations at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad, Sanjay Shah, the esteemed founder and CEO of Vistex, met with a tragic accident that claimed his life.
The mishap occurred while Shah, along with the company’s president Raju Datla, was in an iron cage intended for descent, leading to a fall of over 15 feet due to a snapped wire. This unfortunate incident has left the Vistex community and the tech industry in shock, as one life was lost, and another official, Datla, remains critically injured.
Vistex, headquartered in Illinois, is a leading software firm specializing in revenue management solutions and services, boasting a global presence with 20 offices and over 2,000 employees. The company serves renowned brands like GM, Barilla, and Bayer.
Sanjay Shah, a tech entrepreneur hailing from Mumbai, was not just the CEO but also the chief architect of Vistex. His leadership played a pivotal role in propelling Vistex to prominence in the industry. Shah’s roots at Lehigh University saw the founding of the Vistex Institute for Executive Learning and Research, showcasing his commitment to education and innovation.
Under Shah’s guidance, Vistex experienced significant growth, dedicating itself to revolutionizing how businesses bring products and services to market. Beyond his professional endeavors, Shah actively engaged in philanthropy, establishing the Vistex Foundation to provide grants to nonprofits focusing on health, education, and basic needs.
As we mourn the loss of Sanjay Shah, let’s also acknowledge the critical role played by Raju Datla, the president of Vistex since 2000.
Datla has been instrumental in shaping and expanding the firm’s Solution Delivery capabilities, according to the company’s website. The Vistex community stands united in grief, remembering the visionary leaders who have left an indelible mark on the tech industry.
