Leadership Team

Rakesh Malhotra

They say attitude separates the great. It clearly reflects in the case of Mr. Rakesh Malhotra. For, his restlessness with the ordinary always talked volumes about him. Not settling for WHAT-IS, he always showcased traits visible in scientists and great visionaries. What changes can be made to the existing structures and technologies to make them at par with future ready generation. Mr. Malhotra’s this very attitude brought him to the doors of entrepreneurship after completing his engineering studies followed by industry a brief stint with the industry.

Starting his innings with Luminous Power Technologies, he coined the success mantra for the company. As the flagship product of the brand, Luminous Power Technologies caught the attention of Schneider Electric and soon the process of handing over an established market leader started and the stage was set for change of hands. The brand was sold to Schneider in its entirety, but certain elements were still retained, like experiences and readying blueprints for success stories, apart from others. Charting on to many paths, his driving force still remains his innovative spirit to add something extra to his products backed by extraordinary services. He mainly stretches his arms in businesses which are still a concept to the contemporary, so the visionary in him always takes precedence than his marketing side. Like, he has set up an India-centric VC fund with an anchor investment of USD 30 million, apart from Telecom, Water, Renewable Energy and logistics.

Known for his unique approach towards marketing, he lays down a different plan for a different vertical of business, which is more industry specific than market specific.

No wonder, Mr. Malhotra is the silent spectator, an active participator and a prolific mentor to many entrepreneurs too.
