Raghvendra Tripathi, more popularly known as Raghu, is a man who performs and makes everybody and everything else perform too.
Raghu is a person who makes his presence felt beneficially, wherever he is. Prior to Ramco, Raghu was with Mahindra Satyam (now Tech Mahindra), and was instrumental for Satyam’s entry into China and their success there. In 2007, he became the first Indian to be selected amongst Shanghai’s Top Ten IT Talents. A year later, he also received the prestigious Magnolia Award, given by the Shanghai Government to foreigners who make a significant contribution to the city’s economic performance, international relations, business environment, management standards and community development.
Raghu has a B Tech in Electronics from IIT-BHU and a Masters in Management from MDI, Gurgaon. He started his career with a public sector enterprise at a time when the telephony revolution had just started in India and realized that the time had come to dream and realize those dreams. In 1998, he got associated with Satyam Enterprise Solutions, which was at that time a start-up focusing on new telecom companies, and working towards selling services to Telco players across Asia. “An exciting opportunity came up in 2002, to set up Satyam’s operations in the Middle Kingdom, and I became perhaps the first Indian in Pudong, Shanghai.” Finally, after spending a decade in China, he relocated to India, and is today part of another exciting journey with Ramco. A performer, he gains strength not just from work experience, but also through the learning he gets from travel and the energy boost he gets when spending quality time with friends and family. “Playing cricket with friends and family instills team work and grace to face situations in life,” he says!
