Kindred spirits




Jaydeep Solanki is General Motors (GM) Holden’s Director of Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, responsible for managing annual $1 billion+ procurement of all parts, material and services for vehicle design, engineering and manufacturing operations in Australia.

Having joined GM India in 1997 after completing his computer engineering and MBA degrees from M S University in Baroda, Gujarat, in 2001, Jayadeep was transferred to Australia to manage the IT programme for the new engine plant in Port Melbourne.

“I instantaneously fell in love with Melbourne’s vibrant culture, community spirit and cafes. I admired the warmth of the Australian community towards new migrants like me. ”

He started his Melbourne journey in Middle Park, where he rented a small apartment with his wife. “Middle Park still reminds and inspires me to embrace this wonderful spirit of Australia. I love how everyone cares about local communities. Good coffee is another incentive that literally makes my day, every day.”

Many factors, including the proximity to the beach, school and vibrant shopping strip, convinced him to make Melbourne home. A happy peaceful spirited home.
