Dr. Augustine F. Pinto

Founding Chairman,
Ryan International Group of Institutions

Ryan Group is the manifestation of dreams. It began as a vision to completely change the educational picture in the country and to make qualitative education available to all. From a small, simple beginning to one of the largest privately managed educational groups, Ryan Group has come a long way. The story of Ryan Group is that of complete dedication to the field, immense hardwork and an extreme desire for credible social change.

The foundation of this dream was laid in 1976 by Dr. Augustine F. Pinto, a graduate from the reputed Loyola College, Kolkata. The tremendous faith in the dream and the desire to succeed kept him going in spite of initial setbacks and challenges. It is his commitment, austerity and an ambitious approach to school education that has made him one of the most admired figures in the contemporary education sector.

The vision that started three decades earlier has now become one of a dire success story of our times.

Dr Augustine F Pinto attributes divine inspiration and guidance behind the spirit of his vision. According to him, “Forty years ago, God planted a seed in my heart and directed me to spread affordable, high quality English medium education within Indian society. Finally, our efforts, dedication and vision have helped us establish one of the largest chains of high quality education institutes in the country.”

Dr. Pinto was awarded the International Man of The Year Award by the International Biographical Center, Cambridge, UK for his contribution to the field of education. He has also received the prestigious Rajiv Gandhi Award for Environment, keeping in mind his tremendous efforts to raise awareness about it.
