Jaro Education has carved a niche for itself in the fast-growing education industry. However, the major credit for the venture’s success remains with its CEO, Dr. Sanjay Salunkhe, whose ‘behind the scenes’ persistence has worked wonders in providing Jaro Education a stable leadership and able guidance.
Dr. Sanjay Salunkhe holds a strong academic background. Apart from holding a Doctorate in Change Management and an MBA in Human Resource Management, he also holds a LLB from the University of Mumbai.

His tenure abroad included working at DTI Incorporation, USA, as well as working for Net Tec Pte Ltd at multiple locations in India, Singapore, and the USA.
After gaining experience in various aspects of management, Dr. Salunkhe started his entrepreneurial journey by establishing his own recruitment company in December 1999 by the name of Net Technologies Pvt Ltd. Within a short period of time, the company went on to feature amongst top 10 executive search companies in India. Till date, NET Technologies has successfully placed about 20,000 candidates in leading multinational banks.
The year 2008 saw Dr. Sanjay venturing into the higher education domain with the incorporation of Jaro Institute of Technology Management and Research Pvt Ltd (popularly known as Jaro Education).

The way Dr. Salunkhe has persistently worked to realize his dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur despite having begun his career as an educator is an inspiration to all those who have called quit on their dreams just because they had to choose a different path.
Dr. Sanjay Salunkhe proves that it is possible to realize your dream despite taking different paths if you are committed towards your goal.
