Bhawnesh Mathur

President and CEO

Bhawnesh MathurJoining Creation as President and CEO in 2014, Bhawnesh (pronounced “Buv-nesh”) has an impressive background in electronics and electronics manufacturing services. His work experience spans OEMs, Distribution and EMS Providers alike. He is passionate about doing his absolute best and helping others to achieve the same.

Originally from India, Bhawnesh graduated from the University of Florida in 1979 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical Engineering and received an MBA from the University of Arizona in 1983. His career began at IBM in 1979, and over the course of the following 20 years, he progressed from Process Engineer – Wafer Fabrication for magnetic read/write heads, to Program Leader, Plant Manager and then went on to executive roles in global procurement and supply chain management.

Wanting to broaden his horizons and continue to develop his leadership skills, in 2000 Bhawnesh joined a Tier II EMS Provider as a supply chain executive, where he focused on process improvements that included rolling out new IT systems that provided global visibility and leverage for his teams. In 2005, he joined Arrow Electronics, one of Creation’s largest distribution partners, and there spent 3 years as Chief Supply Chain Officer, helping to define supply chain strategy and build stronger relationships with suppliers and customers.

Most recently, in his role as CEO, Bhawnesh enabled another Tier III EMS provider to foster process improvements through Six Sigma and Lean Supply Chain, and the company increased its market share, profitability and efficiency without compromising the flexibility needed to support its customers.

When Bhawnesh began looking for a new role with the right company and the right team, he knew that Creation was the perfect fit. And after an extensive search and long conversations with him, we knew that he was the perfect fit for Creation, too.

Hidden Talents?: I was a cartoonist for a college newspaper at one time. I have a good collection of old comic books that includes Star Trek, Flash Gordon, Spiderman, and Superman.

Best Book Ever: I can’t pick just one! My Kindle has over 6,000 books and I read a book a week.

Lesser Known Fact: At one time I was a pretty serious tennis player. I played in the Tucson, Arizona city league, IBM league (won the B-league championship one year), weekend doubles league, etc. It’s been a long time since I’ve taken up the racket, but I still love watching tournaments like Wimbledon on TV.

Can’t Live Without: Spending time with my family and learning new things. We are lucky to have explored Australia, Puerto Rico, many parts of Europe, Mexico, India, and virtually all of the US. Exploring new places together, trying different foods, and trying to make-do with our small collection of foreign languages is exciting for us.
