Our Team
Mehul A. Desai - Founder & Chairman
Mehul A. Desai is the driving force of Mail Order Solutions India Pvt Ltd (MOS). His vision and focus have led the company to establish standards and business models that have proven exemplary for a small set up to grow exponentially in a short span. A Sales & Marketing veteran, his journey to set up a business venture of his own took wings in 1997 with sister and partner Dharti Desai.

MOS specialises in outsourced Print production and Distribution for International Direct Marketers and Advertisers. To put it simply, delivery of mails from the printer to the customer’s door step was an unheard of concept which made the Company an industry leader by implementing and combining high end technology as well as manual labour which offered clients a great cost reduction. With his in depth knowledge of the Indian marketplace Mehul has been instrumental in defining the company's relationship with its clients in India and abroad.

One of his goals is to position MOS as a world-class Print Management and Services company and to provide unmatched support and service to the company's constituents, including business operations and the executive management team. With Mehul’s tenacity, today MOS has a plush all-encompassing print production facility which houses the latest in technology, processes and aims to stay ahead to leverage the fast evolving technology.

An avid cricket fan and graduate from Mumbai University, Mehul started his career as a Sales Executive at Procter & Gamble India Ltd. and rose to senior positions in companies like Modi Xerox Ltd, Real Value Appliances Ltd, and Atlaz Telecommunications Ltd. Mehul was Vice President (Sales & Marketing) with Atlaz. Mehul's forte has been his skill to “sell a refrigerator to an Eskimo” along with his ability to lead people and he uses that talent now to hone in deals, conducting training sessions with his staff & vendors.

Mehul is currently the President of Bombay Master Printer’s Association (BMPA), is a Governing Council Member of All India Federation of Master Printers (AIFMP) and has been a speaker at various Industry events and seminars.

She coined the name FineWinesnMore and has managed to make her new enterprise an industry leader in innovation, credibility, and education for wine consumers in India. After ten years, thanks to Dharti’s vision and push for innovation and creativity, brand FWM has managed very good equity in India and now Dharti has setup FWM’s first wine retail venture, a unique and the only one of its kind concept in India.
