Sunny is a distinguished business leader with an MBA from the University of Michigan and undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from IIT Delhi. After spending over two decades helping high tech companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Adobe, and E-bay with their growth strategies, he decided to spend the rest of his career doing something that is meaningful and fulfilling to him and his family. He and his wife grew up in India and their parents still live in Delhi. Given the thousands of miles separating them, they could not spend the quality time caring for their folks. They decided to pay forward, by sharing their love and care with the residents at the Del Monte. He took the plunge to dedicate his life to this cause. In his humble opinion, every facility provides care to the residents, but what residents really need is love, affection and a purpose. His goal is to create a warm and inviting atmosphere where residents feel at home – and that is the Del Monte difference.
Nagesh brings over 23 years of professional experience in technology, services, real-estate investments, crowdfunding, and senior living to the team. His diverse experience includes consulting for a variety of big scale companies like Ford, Bank of America, and PG&E. He has also owned businesses in multiple industries such as Commercial Property Management, IT, and even Vending Machines. Aside from his business-minded interests in procurements, profit-building, and cost-optimization, Nagesh is passionate about community service, eco-friendly living, and is always learning more about technology!
