International Pest Consultant | Basel, Switzerland - Operating Worldwide
As R&D manager I worked with Raja over several years to develop and launch products to the professional pest control industry. Rather than try to hide the "weaknesses" of a product and only talk about its strengths, Raja preferred to tackle the problem issues head-on with innovative marketing ideas, challenging the "conventional wisdom". His unique style of presentation, meant that product launches and conferences were always well attended by pest control operators, wondering what he would come up with next. He is accomplished in getting a diverse team working together to achieve common goals, by recognising good ideas from others and giving credit accordingly. The strong team spirit, new product offerings and innovative marketing approaches resulted in a tripling of the business.

I worked with Raja in a small team for many years and with the combination of innovative new products and novel marketing methods the business was able to grow significantly, quadrupling in the space of 7 years. Raja's own special style was a major factor in getting the attention of the market - this meant that all product launches were the best attended pest control events of the year. Each event would get the industry talking and those that missed out would endeavour to make it to the next one. Always one to give credit where it is due, Raja was an integral member of the team and crucial to its success.
