Madan Prabhu

Director | Innovation Services Group

I’m a firm believer in the KISS (Keep it Simple, Stupid !) principle,  which has been a driving factor, both in my Professional and Personal life. Designing simple solutions to everyday household problems (D-I-Y) was a hobby, which pulled me towards an Engineering career.

15 years of experience in Engineering, Research & Development has made me realize that few experiences in life are as satisfying as that of seeing an idea transform into a real product. I tend to get bogged down by monotony and continuously look for ways to break free from routine. At Xinova, I get to work on a broad spectrum of  Innovation and development projects that pose atypical challenges and makes work interesting.

I started my career as an Engineer in  Machinery & Heavy Engineering industry and later moved to the Energy Industry. I hold a Master’s Degree in Engineering Design from The University of Huddersfield, U.K and an Executive MBA from INSEAD, Singapore.
