A hands-on leader, Madhav has spent his career building and launching consumer products that make life better—photography, art, books, and health and wellness. As President of Seasoned, he is passionate about building a community that will change the economic outcomes of people in the restaurant industry. An “executive chef” of sorts, he is responsible for setting strategy and working with cross-functional teams to drive business results. Madhav has held senior executive positions at Lynda.com (acquired by LinkedIn), CellScope, Alibris (the web's second largest bookseller), Art.com, and Kodak.
Madhav holds an MBA from Simon School of Business, University of Rochester, a PhD and an MS in materials science from the California Institute of Technology, and a B.Tech in metallurgy from the Indian Institute of Technology at Kanpur.
An avid photographer, Madhav spends his free time travelling the world capturing its wonders, tasting all manner of local cuisine—most recently yak butter tea in Tibet—and playing golf.
