How Krishen Iyer Built Up His Businesses:

More than a decade after graduating from college, Krishen Iyer has created not one, but two successful businesses. First, he formed Quick Link Marketing, which recently changed its name to Managed Benefit Services. The company works with dental and health insurance companies to provide them with consulting and marketing services. In addition, he founded MNP Insurance in 2015.

According to Iyer, one of the elements that has led to his success in the insurance and marketing fields is communication. He says the key to bringing any idea to life is to listen to multiple viewpoints and bring together the best aspects. Krishen Iyer adds that his natural inquisitiveness helps a great deal. He usually finds himself asking multiple questions to people in order to see the different ideas and views each person has on a particular issue. Using advanced techniques to collect data has also aided the growth of his businesses. While overseeing his business operations can result in a busy day, Iyer always makes face to face interaction a priority. He says that in his daily schedule, the first half of the day is dedicated to interfacing with his clients.
