Eka Software Solutions, the leading global provider of Smart Commodity Management software solutions, announced today that Eka’s CEO and founder, Manav Garg, has been named to Fortune Magazine’s ’40 Under 40′ compilation of executives in India. The Fortune Magazine list highlights 40 innovative senior executives under the age of 40 years who have developed rapidly growing and profitable businesses.

Competition for the 40 Under 40 list was steep. Fortune evaluated a large pool of highly qualified candidates and whittled the list down to 40. The criteria for selection in the 40 Under 40 list included business growth and profitability. Eka has enjoyed impressive growth, averaging 35% increase in revenue per year over the last five years.

Manav Garg is the CEO and Founder of Eka Software Solutions. Prior to founding Eka, Mr. Garg was an agricultural trader with a large global commodity trading house. He has an engineering degree from REC (Regional Engineering College) in Jalandhar, and an MBA from IIFT (Indian Institute of Foreign Trade) in Delhi.

“It is both gratifying and humbling to be included in this list of top entrepreneurs and professionals in India,” said Manav Garg, founder and CEO of Eka. “This recognition and Eka’s growth would not be possible without the dedication of our world class team.”

This award comes in the midst of a period of rapid growth and success for Eka. In 2013, the number of employees working for Eka grew 55%. Adding to its resources to support its rapid growth, Eka took a strategic investment from Silver Lake, the world’s leading investor in the global technology industry.
