P. N. C. MENON

An industrialist with a human touch 

Mr. P.N.C. Menon is the founder Chairman of Sobha Group of companies. A first generation entrepreneur, Mr. Menon began his professional career by setting up an interior decoration firm in the Sultanate of Oman in 1976. He demonstrated that an Indian could achieve perfection in quality and succeed against stiff international competition. His business empire soon expanded to U.A.E., Bahrain and Qatar, with an unmatched reputation for quality construction and interiors. Seeing the potentials in the Indian real estate market and the dire need for quality construction, he founded Sobha Developers in Bangalore in 1995.

The company built its foundation on international quality standards and value systems and created an unparalleled name in the Indian real estate industry.

Mr. Menon’s desire to do something in his home state led him to launch Sobha City – a self contained township of International standards and scale, at Thrissur in Kerala in May 2007, Sobha’s first real estate project outside Bangalore.

Mr. Menon encourages every member of his team to be a specialist in his/her own field. He says: "Let the drive for perfection start from within". A philanthropist with a deep felt commitment to social responsibility, he is engaged in numerous charitable causes; he refuses to call it charity, though. For Mr Menon, it is not charity but an obligation, a social responsibility. The social responsibility activities undertaken by him have clear goals in specific areas of development and are truly replicable models in the society.

The social initiatives of Sobha Group are channelized through Sri Kurumba Trust, which has been doing silent service in Kerala, focusing on two districts, viz. Palakkad and Thrissur. Some of the major social projects include (a) Sobha Construction Academy which trains to develop skilled tradesmen from the economically weaker section of society, (b) Sobha Hermitage, a unique senior citizens’ and widows’ home with world class amenities, (c) Sobha Health Care, a primary health centre with high quality amenities for specialty treatment, (d) Sobha Academy, an exclusive educational institution for the underprivileged children and (e) social rehabilitation scheme for the people of two backward villages.

In 2009 Mr Menon was nominated to the Prime Minister’s Advisory Council of Overseas Indians. The Council, constituted to draw upon the experience and knowledge of eminent people of Indian origin in diverse fields from across the world and headed by the Hon’ble Prime Minister himself, includes very eminent personalities.

The latest in the recognitions received by Mr Menon is the prestigious Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Puraskar by the Hon’ble President of India in January 2009.

Perhaps the greatest compliment he has received is from another great Indian, Mr NR Narayana Murthy, Chairman & Chief Mentor, Infosys, when he said, “…….Mr. PNC Menon, probably the finest builder that India has seen in the last 100 years; I don't know of any other person who has emphasized on quality as Mr. Menon has done”.

If you combine business and humanity, you have Mr PNC Menon.
