Arvind Salian, Automotive New Production Introduction PE Manager, Freescale Semiconductor
Growing up in Mumbai, India, Arvind Salian epitomized “happy go lucky.” The youngest of four children in a middle-class family, Salian studied just enough to make decent grades, but he much preferred being outdoors, playing sports with the neighborhood kids.

Now with two master’s degrees, a PhD, and five patents under his belt, this PE manager at Freescale Semiconductor has found success on an entirely new playing field.
