Naren Gursahaney

MBA ’89, Former President and CEO, ADT Corp.



When Naren Gursahaney (MBA 89) took the position of president and CEO at ADT Corp., he knew the company would have to refocus its efforts on innovation if it hoped to maintain its position as the largest home security provider in the United States.

Gursahaney, who joined ADT following its spinoff from Tyco International, set about hiring a chief innovation officer, strengthened the company's ties to Silicon Valley and sought to more fully incorporate the concepts of innovation into the company's values of trust, service and collaboration. 

Gursahaney retired from ADT in 2016 following the company's sale to Apollo Global Management.
