Learn About Our Company & Our Team

The Lotus Group first started as an idea back in 2009 that came from the mind of CEO, Ash Anand. Ash knew that he could run a business, so he thought why not teach others to do the same? Lotus Analytics, a business solutions consulting firm, was the first of many initiatives that would soon come rapidly in the following years. Today, Ash owns 8 different (and extremely diverse) businesses in Upstate New York where he always makes things innovative, new, with a twist of the unexpected.  Today, a staff of about 10 people work in the corporate office of Lotus, a modern, imaginative, beautifully refinished home in the Adirondack Mountains. In just seven short years, Ash has added over 50 employees and an Automotive Repair Shop, a Construction Company, a Property Management Company, a Nutracueticals Line, a Learning Center and Daycare, a Dog Grooming Salon, a Fine Dining Restaurant and a Truck and Auto Supply Store. At Lotus, our team follows Ash's lead and thinks quickly, creatively and positively. We believe that with a team like this, anything is possible.
