Mr. Kamlesh Shah was born in 1958 in a traditional Gujarati household. He initially attended Children’s Academy and later completed his schooling at RBT Parikh High school; both in Mumbai. While at school, he excelled in physics and mathematics, which paved the way to his budding interest in engineering sciences. He finished his formal education in 1980 with a degree in Electrical Engineering from Sardar Patel College of Engineering, Mumbai. With a fresh degree in his hand, Mr. Shah joined Pan Electricals as a Site Engineer. The first hand, ground level experience he gained at Pan Electricals proved to be an excellent initiation into the world of Electrical Contracting. From there, he worked with EMCO transformers as a Sales Engineer and finally with Crompton Greaves as an Assistant Manager in their Contracts division.

Mr. Shah’s enterprising streak wouldn’t let him do just a day job. He had plans to have his own business and he thus started at Listenlights as a partner in 1984. His goal at the time was simple - to raise the bar of electrical contracting services in the market through quality workmanship.

Today, Listenlights has served clients all across India and UAE and has set up offices in India including Pune, Hyderabad and Bengaluru.

In addition, he has served as the Secretary on Board for ECAM (Electrical Contractors’ Association of Maharashtra) for 6 years from 2007-2013 and since, has always represented ECAM at the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards, Government of India). He is also the go-to person for taxation norms and compliances and is heading the Taxation Committee at ECAM for over a decade now.

Mr. Shah believes in hard work, persistence and perfection. His philosophy of doing things right the first time and commitment to on-time site handovers permeate to all the levels within his organization. His staff looks up to him as an enthusiastic leader, someone who always leads by example and who is open to meaningful discussions. His success mantra? - ‘Change is the only constant’, one must be dynamic and willing to make changes from time to time to stay ahead of the competition.

" I have known Mr. Kamlesh Shah since the last two decades and have been fortunate to be associated with Listenlights on several projects. Their performance has been exemplary and our clients have rarely faced issues in electrical works undertaken by them . This speaks volumes of their ability to do it right the first time! Consistently adhering to quality and time has been their strength. "
