Coinciding with Asian American Heritage Month, Georgia Asian Times (GAT) published its list of 25 Most Influential Asian Americans in Georgia, “documenting the changing of power and the continual shifting of influence of Asian Americans in our communities.” Included are three Indian-Americans.

He is adding new dimensions to U.S.-India business by organizing conferences, such as “A Roadmap to India’s Supply Chain: Markets and Opportunities Conference.” Agnihotri was also named by Georgia Trend magazine in January 2011 as one of the 100 Most Influential Georgians, and in January 2012 as a Notable Georgian. He was on the GAT list of 25 Most Influential Asian Americans in Georgia last year as well as this year.





Ritesh (Rick) Desai, Executive Vice President, Eshco International, Inc., is a serial entrepreneur and community activist, and a repeat member of the GAT list as well (2008, 2012). His group of companies does business in the U.S., Israel, India, and China. He has been active in state and national politics, in business organizations such as the Georgia Indo American Chamber of Commerce, in charitable organizations such as BAPS, and he has been active in strengthening the Indo-Jewish relationship.
