“Smart, diligent, and a connector of ideas, people, and ambitions, Maanav has a gift for getting what he wants and often does so simply by expecting others to fall into line in order to bring his plan to fruition.

“Whether is is strength of character, the barrage of multisyllabic words he can marshal to his cause, or simply the way he convinces others that they want what he wants, Manaav uses these powers in the service of good and, even as pandemic made so much impossible, he made quite a number of things happen at MPA, big and small.

“Like any good leader, he makes sure that others get what they need as well and has worked hard to bring new ideas, and fun events, to life.”
