Title: Journey from CFO to COO to CEO/Entrepreneur
Speaker: Mr. Mahesh Shetty, Founder & CEO, ILE Homes
Mahesh presented the idea of creating wealth for investors through residential real estate investments approximately four years before ILE was founded, during which time he worked to design a turnkey operations-driven investment platform. Hundreds of meetings to iron out the strategies, demographics, and risk-mitigation checkpoints ensued, and eventually resulted in ILE’s founding.
A Certified Public Accountant, Mahesh received his MBA (summa cum laude) from The University of Texas at Dallas, and earned a bachelor’s degree from Osmania University, India. He is a Certified Information Technology Professional, a Chartered Global Management Accountant, and a Fellow Chartered Accountant. Mahesh was recognized as CFO of the Year by both D CEO magazine and the Dallas Business Journal, and is a recipient of DBJ’s Minority Business Leader Award.
