The following Eminent personalities, of great erudition and true social commitment constitute the Board of Trustees.

K.Santhanam M.A., M.Ed.
Managing Trustee

Sri. K. Santhanam, the Founder of the SSM Institutions has come from a very modest and respectable Family. As a Diploma Holder in Civil Engineering, he started his career on a daily wage of Rs.6/- in the year 1965.

At the age of 19, he entered the Government Municipal Service as a Supervisor on a monthly salary of Rs.161/- and left the service at the age of 29, when he was drawing a salary of Rs.625/- per month, unable to tolerate or digest even the negligible percentage of unethical practice that prevailed in those days. He entered the World of Entrepreneurs not knowing that this Venture is in no way better than his previous assignment on the issue of moral and ethical values.

In the last 53 years, he has been working non-stop, without taking even a day’s rest, to make his life Service-Oriented. He is not a philanthropist as all his services are charged. His life cannot be construed as a Business, as his aim was not to make profit and amaze wealth. His journey of life can best be understood, as a Service to the man-kind.

Total surrender to God – Hard work – Honesty - Integrity and Quality of Service alone is the motto of his life, which had made him, what he is today in the Society. Above all he is an apolitical person.
