In 1996, Arun was given the complete responsibility of the organization and was capped as Chief Executive Officer of Modi Olivetti. Arun remained in vanguard and transformed the organization with a select team to support him. Even though Olivetti exited the PC business worldwide, Arun was able to build a substantial business under the Spice Banner in the I.T Systems, Services and Peripherals area.
A key component of this success was the strong bond established with Olivetti to promote, sell and service their products in India. Till today, the Olivetti business remains the flagship business for Bharat IT and contributes majority to the top and bottom line of the company. Parallely, the service business in the I.T sector was developed to cater to the service support needs of the domestic BFSI segment.

Bharat IT’s most recent foray in the cheque truncation area by associating with CTS Electronics of Italy as their Indian Distributor, will go a long way in making us a prominent player in this category in India. Building and managing teams of successful professionals is Arun’s forte. Creating and nurturing customers with long term relationships is a key strength
