Sudhakar V. Shenoy, founder, chairman and CEO of IMC Inc., a consulting and technology company in Reston, will be an Executive-in-Residence speaker Wednesday, Feb. 29, at 7 p.m. in Blackwell Ballroom.

Shenoy has received numerous awards, including being named one of the Top 25 Most Influential People in the Washington, D.C., high-tech industry, the Northern Virginia GovCon Council's Executive of the Year and the Greater Washington High Technology Entrepreneur of the Year. He speaks frequently on trends in information technology.

Shenoy is a native of India who came to the United States in 1970 to attend graduate school at the University of Connecticut, where he earned two master's degrees and later taught. He founded IMC - the acronym stands for Information Management Consultants - in 1981 with his last $2,000.

"It is his intuitive ability to reinvent the company time and again that has enabled IMC to not only weather the changes that the technology sector wrought over the past two-and-a-half decades, but also thrive," said a 2006 article in the IndUS Business Journal. "Shenoy left a secure position at American Management Corp. to start a company that initially produced software for Wang Computers. After Wang went bankrupt in 1990, IMC began working with the federal government and moving into different technologies. In the late 1990s, IMC moved into the health-care industry."

IMC's website describes the company as "one of the most trusted and reliable technology consultancies in the DC metro region" and one that is "frequently recognized for outstanding business and community leadership."

The Executive-in-Residence program is a public service of the College of Business & Economics and is made possible through the generous corporate support of Barrett Capital Management LLC and SunTrust Bank Inc.
