Jim Lasswell is a military man.
He spent 20 years in the Navy before starting a career in acquisition.
In 1997, he started at his current company, INDUS Technology Inc.
His late wife, Kathy P. Sridhar, was founder and president of the company and urged Lasswell to join her.
Both Sridhar and Lasswell were trained as engineers, but decided early on to allow their range of services to vary from financial management support to providing C4I communication systems.
INDUS started as a family business -- Lasswell, Sridhar and Lasswell's daughter from a previous marriage were the core team.
Sridhar was the president and did most of the customer relations work while Lasswell handled the books.
"That's a real interesting business to be working with two women who both think they control you," he said, with a laugh.
