Kanwar is an engineer first, with degrees in mechanical engineering and a firm appreciation of the profession's joys and challenges. And he is an award winning businessman, noted repeatedly by Autodesk for excellence and service to clients.

Coming up through the ranks, first as an applications engineer, Kanwar's technical expertise allowed him to recommend just the right solution to our clients. It also ensured customer satisfaction because his after-purchase involvement helped clients get the most from the technology.

Widely regarded very knowledgeable in Autodesk software and solutions, Kanwar is consulted by product committees to strengthen the alignment between Autodesk and KETIV to meet customer requirements and match solutions to needs.
