Our Homage To a Great Visionary

Dr. Pradeep P. Thevannoor, the late Vice Chairman of SCMS Group, was a great visionary and a source of inspiration for all of us at SCMS Group. He wanted to take SCMS to great heights in quality and excellence. A man of fertile imagination and untiring energy, he was in a hurry to accomplish his pet projects. SCMS Engineering College was closest to his heart. He was also the guiding force and inspiration behind SCMS School of Architecture and projects like SCMS Water Institute, Biotechnology Research Centre, the now famous Neera, biofuel from coconut oil, the antidiabetic tea powder ‘Stevia Tea’ and a host of other activities. They were all products inspired and initiated by him. Widely travelled, his unfinished mission was for spreading the wings of SCMS to London and Bangalore by establishing academic institutions. He died on his way to Bangalore for project evaluation on 17.11.2014 when his car collided with a truck and died instantly. True to his nature, he lived for SCMS and died for it.
