Our Founders

Our Founders

The D.J. Academy for Managerial Excellence (DJAME) is an initiative of the GKD Charity Trust set up in the year 1983 by the Late Cavalier Dr. G.K. Devarajulu, the founder of the LMW Group of Companies and a legend in his own lifetime. Entrepreneur, industrialist, visionary, diplomat and philanthropist, “GKD”, as he was affectionately called, is widely believed to have been instrumental in the emergence of Coimbatore as an industrial city.

Owing to the efforts of GKD’s illustrious son, the Late Dr. D.Jayavarthanavelu, DJAME was established in the year 2001 with the objective of helping students evolve into competent and socially responsible business managers. Today, more than a decade and a half since its inception, DJAME is poised to enter its next level of excellence in academics, research and educational outreach. In the days ahead, the lives and values of our founders would continue to serve as our guiding lights in all our actions.


“My experience tells me the most valuable long-term investment anyone can make is not in stocks or bonds or real estate, but in higher education. At DJAME, we equip students to measure up and stay relevant to the ever-evolving business environment. And we do it by contributing to their complete development not only as astute, competent business people but as caring, concerned individuals committed to the community they are part of and by extension to the world.”

- Late Dr. D.Jayavarthanavelu
