Our Visionaries

H.E. Rev. Dr. G. Satyanarayana,

About Chairman

“Integrity is the key. By building trusted relationships we continually offer the best specialist services, products and growth to the society.”

The prestige and success of Sophia Group are credited to the zest of its Founder, Chairman and Chancellor H.E. Rev. Dr. G Satyanarayana who is popularly known as Rev. Dr. Naidu. Every big castle was once started with a single block; despise no small beginnings. A little step taken every day builds up the hope of greater accomplishments. Do something every day and great accomplishments will start with small beginnings. This exactly matches with Rev. Dr. Naidu, who started working in Hospitality industry at different positions and resigned as Vice President.

We all want to be the part of a team that leaves a legacy and is remembered for years for what we have accomplished. A dream of many ideas coming together with great passion and an opportunity ceased in how Sophia Group was born. With vast industry experience and with a great vision Sophia Group was started in 2014.

Rev. Dr. Naidu is an experienced mentor with well-known leadership skills which have helped in the development and rise of the Sophia Group which is into Infrastructure, Mining, Capitals, Exports, Media, Life, Energies, Agriculture and Foundation. He believes that the key to any successful endeavor is trust which can be seen in the authenticity of the specialist services and products offered by Sophia Group.

Apart from being an evangelist Rev. Dr. Naidu is an avid entrepreneur, visionary, politician, philanthropist and an internationally well-known mentor and speaker for leadership skills. All these qualities have helped him in becoming a pioneer in Social Welfare and to make Sophia Group “GLOCAL” by enriching its roots locally and deepening the roots globally. He has also been given key positions in a National Party. This is not everything, with a vision to become global reference in academics, Rev. Dr. Naidu has started Sophia University along with Sophia Agriculture University and Sophia Medical University to be the temple of learning to enrich and equip students with knowledge, wisdom, understanding and character which will empower the society we live in, with competent and responsible professionals.

We are all challenged in the Business World. To meet these challenges, at the core we aimed to be the “Resilience in the face of headwinds.” With this mindset, currently Rev. Dr. Naidu is taking care of the Global Establishment of Sophia Group; which has been rooted in Middle East, Africa, South Pacific and Europe.
