Rakesh has a unique ability to connect the technical and commercial pillars of an organization to effect change. It has been a pleasure working closely with Rakesh as a board member of our Fiber Materials portfolio company. He has been instrumental in helping the company define its technical differentiation – clearly, succinctly, and backed up by data – and perhaps more importantly, what it means for where the company should focus its efforts for growth. Additionally, Rakesh has been a key resource as a sounding board for our management team for a variety of critical business issue, including HR, Health and Safety, and Strategic Vision.

President at Barton International
I have had the great privilege of working with Rakesh for the past year. He has assisted our firm with a product/market development program that has outshone every other program that I have been involved with over my 35 year career. Rakesh and his associates showed extraordinary discipline and excellent organization to get all of our minds around very complex opportunities and perhaps most importantly presented a way to prioritize these opportunities. This allowed us to focus where the rewards were both most likely and most profitable. I highly recommend Rakesh to any organization that is looking at developing new products and new markets.
