Project Chairman: JC HGF Vivek N Rathod

JCI VIzag team under the February Month Business Successful local entrepreneur Icon Honors in the field of education industry were privileged to felicitate the Center Director of JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Vizag & Hyderabad Mr. Kattamuri Pradeep on 17th February,2020.

Mr. Kattamuri Pradeep explained us in detail about how he followed his passion and started the institute inspite of facing so many challenges.

Kattamuri Pradeep is currently the Centre Director of JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Hyderabad. He completed his B.Sc in Computers in 2005 from Gayatri college, Visakhapatnam. As soon as he completed his graduation, he business started his career by setting up a recruitment firm in Hyderabad and put his heart and soul into it for about two years.

Later, Mr. Pradeep entered food industry by starting a Bakery in Visakhapatnam in 2007. He then realized that he should start something that could create an impact on students by teaching them skill for life and hence decided to start a fashion college. Therefore, he took a franchisee from JD in 2012. Now, he wants to a build a new empire with JD Institute, Hyderabad.

Mr. Pradeep's experience in the education industry. He has about 5 years of experience in running JD Institute. Running a fashion college is very interesting because it's not a regular course. You have a lot of passionate people with Creative Minds to change the world and people with their thoughts. I feel creativity gives you more relaxation.

Significant challenges faced by Mr. Pradeep as the Director of JD Institute of Fashion Technology
Yes, we have faced a lot of challenges in this Fashion College because people are not so much aware of fashion and it's a misconception in the society that students will not have a great career. So, getting them to the institute and explaining them, and getting them to join is a time-taking process. The number of students is less in the initial stages, so I feel people are not preferring lack of proper information in the fashion industry. But things have changed and you have a lot of opportunity in fashion, so now it's much better compared with last 5 years.

Mr. Pradeep's philosophy of leadership Interact with the students, parents and give them confidence, guide them in a proper way with full information about fashion. Be transparent and provide quality education for brighter future.

Suggestions to the current youth
Be clear on what you want to do in life, follow time and timing also.
