Savan Patel

Savan Patel, Founder and President/Managing Principal

Savan was born in India, and immigrated to the U.S. in 1984. He spent a majority of his childhood growing up in Edison, N.J. After high school he enlisted in the Navy, where he spent a considerable amount of time stationed onboard submarines, and various overseas locations throughout the United Kingdom and Guam. Upon departing the service, he gained a passion for interior design and commercial furnishing and joined a furniture dealership in Hawaii as an account executive.

He desired to challenge himself further, and fulfill his professional goal of operating his own business. In a short-period of time, he has positioned Infinium Interiors, Inc. to respond to the fast growth of the Hawaii economy following the recession. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, and an MBA from the Shidler College of Business at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
