In 1992, after a 10-year career with technology giants such as Eastman Kodak and Data General, Sucheta Jain embarked on a new venture with her husband Shail, founding Intelligent Information Systems (now Farragut).
Her tenure in the technology industry equipped her with both the technological skillsets and business acumen necessary to launch and grow a successful company. Among her accomplishments with Eastman Kodak and Data General are the development of automation software for Kodak's film production lines and the development of Data General's Unix operating system.
Since founding Intelligent Information Systems, Sucheta has become the driving force in establishing and growing a culture of profitability, social responsibility, and employee engagement. At a time when technical talent was in high demand, she successfully maintained a 94% retention rate. She demonstrates her passion for community involvement by spearheading Farragut's work with Back Pack Buddies and elementary school tutoring.
When not at work, Sucheta enjoys reading books. Among her favorites is Eat, Pray, Love because of the heroine's courage to leave her comfort zone and try something new. Sucheta is also an avid gardener who enjoys cooking and staying current with the latest movies.
