Rakesh Raizada, business leader
It was one of the proudest moments for me to receive the Indian Sun Person of the year 2013 award from Honourable John Howard as part of IEC awards. I never imagined that there will be a day in my life when I will be speaking and John Howard will not only listen but clap for me.
Receiving an award like Indian Executive of the year 2012 or multicultural excellence award by VMC and most recently The Indian Sun Person of the Year boosts moral and encourages me to work harder to support the community.
This is the reason I have started Ramon Consulting & Financial Services to serve the community as a one-stop shop for their entire personal, professional, banking and finance related needs.
Since this award was purely on the basis of voting I thank the people who voted for me and supported me, and most importantly, IEC, which has started such an initiative for the benefit of the Indian community. The awards evening is getting bigger every year and it will soon be a signature event for the entire Indian community.
