Key Team Members
Hemanshu Shah - Managing Director (Dasta)
Hemanshu spent the first 7 years of his career setting up and running an office furniture brand called Cube Furniture. The brand is vertically integrated. All its products are manufactured internally at Cube’s in-house factory in Bangalore.
The factory turns out over a hundred different models of office chairs and also specializes in custom furniture for office spaces. This customised service demanded a lot of interaction with experienced architects. These interactions sparked Hemanshu’s interest in venturing into the real estate space.
At the opportune moment, he handed over Cube Furniture to his brother Vikrant who is currently running it and has ever since focused his attention entirely on developing real estate.
Over the last 8 years, his efforts have accumulated in the development of 8 unique projects. The last of which was Dasta’s first project: North Avenue, which was successfully completed in December, 2013. Dasta’s story has only just begun, Dasta Concerto is an exciting second chapter, but Hemanshu’s dreams for the company pan out into an extensive and exciting tale.
Chetan S. Shah - Partner (Dasta Concerto)
Chetan was the production head at a family-run venture, Charu Perfumery House; an ‘Incense Stick’ export manufacturer. Within this industry, the brand is a monopoly across 11 states in India and successfully exports to over 20 countries. This chapter in Chetan’s career primed his skills in handling large workforces, coordinating across multiple departments (both Governmental & Non-Governmental), creating quality control processes and generating sales overseas.
He then went on to fulfill various other ventures of his family business. He oversaw the construction of a hotel, 3 apartment projects, a 100,000 sft factory and a commercial complex in Rajajinagar.
Since its inception, Chetan has played a pivotal role in Dasta’s decision making.
