Behind every success there is a force that drives it; TAFE owes its legacy to its people – Leaders who paved the way through the years and those who form TAFE. On August 24, 2015 we celebrate the life of one such leader who embedded quality into TAFE’s DNA and sculpting it into a values driven company, with the farmer at the heart of its strategy – TAFE’s Former Chairman, Mr. A. Sivasailam. On the occasion of his birth anniversary, the TAFE family came together to celebrate this visionary, pioneer, philanthropist and the people’s man. Connected digitally via webcast, all TAFE locations were able to join in the celebrations at the corporate office before having individual celebrations of their own.
The event was attended by TAFE Chairman and CEO, Ms. Mallika Srinivasan and members of the senior management. They spoke fondly of Mr. Sivasailam and remembered him for his vision, courage, foresight and bringing about the culture where quality became one of the foremost attributes TAFE as a brand aspired for. The celebrations concluded with floral tributes by everyone present.
A multitude of adjectives can be used to describe Mr. Sivasailam but one need not look beyond TAFE, a testament to the impact his vision has had on people’s lives. He was TAFE’s growth architect who enriched lives of many and empowered the dreams of farmers across the world. Mr. Sivasailam is a presence always guiding and leading us.
