History

Purohit Holdings was started in 1995 by Jugal Kishore Purohit. Mr. Purohit is a graduate of the YMCA Institute of Technology, near New Delhi, India where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. He immigrated to the United States in 1983 after a successful tenure with Alcobex Metals, a leading brass and copper product manufacturer in India with annual sales exceeding $40 million. He launched his career in the United States as a mechanical engineer and plant manager for Air Balance Inc., a producer of electric fire dampers near Augusta, Georgia, where he supervised a team of over 200 employees and an annual turnover of approximately $20 million.

Mr. Purohit continued this job for many years until his entrepreneurial spirit and desire for financial independence inspired him to apply his high quality standards to mastering performance in the hotel industry. In the early 1990's, Mr. Purohit formed a predecessor to Purohit Holdings to serve as a value driving hospitality investment, operating, and development organization to invest family capital in the lodging industry.
