Kaveh Bazargan moved from Iran to UK as a child. He trained as a Physicist at Imperial College, London. As the College’s very first user of the TeX typesetting program (1983), he used it to typeset his PhD thesis. In 1988 he founded Focal Image Ltd (now River Valley Technologies), offering a typesetting service to academic publishers.
In 1996 (well before the ‘outsourcing’ frenzy) he travelled to India to investigate the emerging typesetting business, a trip that would transform his business and his life! After visiting several large companies, he came across the small team at River Valley Technologies who seemed natural partners. In 1997 the two companies decided to work as one. KB now lives and works between London and Trivandrum.
