Hiten Shah

After completing his master’s in plastic engineering, Hiten worked as a sales representative in the automotive industry for years until his entrepreneurial spirit eventually took over. In 2004 he founded MES (Marketing and Engineering Solutions). In 2007 his clients began requesting for him to handle the supply chain logistics of their business. “How hard can it be?” – he thought, and within a year he was building the MES team on a culture of trust and honesty. A dedicated and self-driven entrepreneur, Hiten took MES to be enlisted in Inc’s 5000 fastest-growing companies for seven years in a row and won Fast 50, ACQ5 Global, Diversity Business, Best Place to Work, and Corporate Caring Awards.

In 2014, MES created an internal tool to streamline the entire RFQ process. In 2016 another tool was created to help centralize product development and the APQP process, an automotive industry standard. In 2018 a MESH intern mentioned the idea to Hiten that the portal would help many manufacturing and enterprise clients streamline their processes. A serial entrepreneur, in 2020 Hiten founded MESH Works with one sole purpose: to optimize sourcing & quality processes for small to mid-size manufacturers.

Hiten is a dedicated follower of Warren Buffett, is comfortable going down a dark alley to solve bigger problems, thinks sleep is overrated, and prefers books to people. He loves dogs and regrets discovering that fact so late in life.

He lives by his favorite Robert Frost poem:

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
