Meet Rajesh George

“I love music and my whole family is part of the church choir. I am involved in community work through my church.” Residing in Bangalore, Karnataka, in the midst of the IT Capital of India, Rajesh George serves as Country Manager – India and Sri Lanka and Global Account Manager for NOKIA. The Indian subcontinent is a growing market for KEMET, and Rajesh is leading the way. Rajesh just celebrated his 13th anniversary with KEMET! His time at KEMET has featured personal growth and was beneficial to the company. Rajesh was a trailblazer in his region, as his office began with just one employee in January 2006. Today they are a team of eight “charged-up individuals” with three offices in India. During his tenure, Rajesh has racked up awards and recognitions, most notably three Club of Excellence awards. KEMET India is experiencing continual growth, uncovering opportunities for new business in space and in the streets. “We designed in payload of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) satellite for the first time in 2017 and executed the first order [flawlessly].” Rajesh recounts another design win with the innovative Ather Energy. Ather Energy is a company based out of Bangalore, India and the first to indigenously develop the electric bike in India. KEMET designed parts at a great price, which was a remarkable achievement and great team work by the KEMET. 2018 was a record year for KEMET India, with financial wins and supplier recognition as well. We crossed the highest ever sales turnover for KEMET India in 2018. “Additionally, KEMET was awarded Supplier of the Year 2018 by our distributor Elektronika for continuous support on deliveries ensuring end customer satisfaction.” That was a global One KEMET moment. Rajesh sees KEMET as a company with ethics, offering high quality products. “We’re an excellent team of individuals being provided with great flexibility and freedom of expression. It is privilege to work for KEMET! In the next 100 years, I am sure that KEMET will continue to reach greater heights, expanding product offerings to become the global leader in passive electronic components.” It’s important to Rajesh that the company “not only offers great returns to shareholders, but also contributes to human welfare.”
