Rajesh K. Nedungadi
I’m Rajesh Kumar Nedungadi. I am an US Citizen and have 20 years of experience inclusive of 8 years internationally and 12 years in the United States in Oil & Gas, Infrastructure, Hospitality, Healthcare, IT and Financial Services Domain. I am well educated with both a Bachelors and Masters’ Degree in Business Management and International Marketing. I have excellent verbal and written skills by which I have amassed a number of influential and distinguished business associates – many of whom have become liaisons to my current Business Partners through my recommendation and introduction.
I hail from an illustrious royal family which ruled the Province of Nedunganadu – in the State of Kerala, India – renowned for its culture and social diversity. My family has always drawn upon the rich traditions of our ancestors and has found enrichment in fostering these values into the modern day.
I started my career by joining my family business which first started in India in the 1970s and then expanded to the Middle East in the early 1980s. This business was started by my father – Nandakumar Nedungadi. His dynamic knowledge of business entrepreneurship quickly succeeded in establishing a profitable business that is flourishing and expanding. During a short period of time, My Father was able to gain the confidence and close business association of the Royal Families of United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, and Bahrain. Our family business next extended its ventures into the Indian Subcontinent.
Preserving my cultural ethics from the Indian subcontinent and amalgamating them with the best of Western culture is an aspect of my daily life that I find to be most rewarding. Integrity, sincerity, trustworthiness, etiquette, and putting forth your full enthusiasm in everything you do are all integral parts of our culture – where every action has a reaction towards success only if you put forth your best and most sincere effort. I always exercise these traits in the professional arena so that my associates realize that my interaction with them is most genuine. Honesty and integrity are the best qualities. This belief pervades all cultures around the globe. My genuine demeanor has enabled my extensive professional relationships with business and political luminaries to originate and grow.
