Douglas Magazine announced Leadership Victoria's 2020 Inspiring Changemakers, including CEO Devesh Bharadwaj from Pani Energy.
Each year, Leadership Victoria celebrates community leadership and recognizes people who have made a lasting contribution to the communities that make up Greater Victoria. Here are this year's recipients of the 2020 Victoria Community Leadership Awards.
"Devesh is an entrepreneur, engineer, and the CEO of Pani Energy, an award-winning tech company based in Victoria that provides digital solutions to make clean water cheaper and more sustainable to produce.
In the short time he has lived in the area, Devesh has been recognized as Douglas magazine’s 10 to Watch Awards for his leadership and achievements in the local and international tech scene. He was also tapped as “the future of British Columbia” by leaders at all of the province’s biggest universities. Devesh believes his leadership style emanates from being emotionally invested in the problem at hand and that trust plays a key role in a company like his that is expanding so fast. He leads by example and has fostered a corporate culture that is both motivated and driven by curiosity to solve problems that have a positive impact on our community – and beyond."
