Meet the team

Now that you have a somewhat amusing introduction of us, it is only appropriate to startle you further.

Rakesh Dighe

Rakesh Dighe
CEO

His main role at RQ is to be our chief motivation officer. He believes that there is no rest for the wicked, which is why sometimes you get email responses from him at 2 am in the morning. The eternal optimist, he is a glass-half-full person who knows his way around the world. He likes to call himself an ‘international man of mystery’. You can find him in London when the weather is good, that is.
Ramesh Kana

Ramesh Kana
Director

Over 30 years of diverse, international experience encompassing Oil & Gas, Chemicals, Mining, Investment Banking and Private Equity in Australia, People's Republic of China, the UK, Latin America and Malaysia.

His work experience spanned the Royal Dutch Shell Group, Transocean Securities & Emery Oleochemicals where he left as Group CEO to become Managing Partner of Aditi Advisory LLP and a Director of Aditi Trustees Limited, a licensed trust company in Labuan, Malaysia.

His passion for sustainability led him to serve as President of United Nations Global Compact (Malaysia), a platform he leveraged to chart and implement sustainability related initiatives at a national strategy and policy level.

Ramesh is a Fellow of the Australian Society of CPAs and a Chartered Accountant with the Malaysian Institute of Accountants.

Chaitanya Kunthe

Chaitanya Kunthe
COO

His main role at RQ, according to others, is to come up with weird ideas and ask people to implement them. Heck, he even forces it down others throats sometimes. He is the go-to person if you want to get a quacky idea implemented.
A self-proclaimed quantum mechanist (who still doesn’t know if the cat is alive or dead), Chaitanya is our in house Socrates. When he isn’t pondering the purpose of life, he likes to ask an inordinate amount of questions and convince people that God is a die-hard Liverpool FC fan.
Deepanjali

Deepanjali Kunthe
Head - Training

Nobody knows what her role at RQ is, but she is in the midst of everything. Besides being pulled into random meetings, she is responsible for our training department and also handles the rather frenzied PMO team.
When she’s not correcting people’s grammar out loud or silently, Deepanjali is raving about Malayalam movies (psst...she doesn’t even understand Malayalam!!). If you see her arms crossed and staring directly at you, we suggest you get her a payasam immediately. Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
Trupti

Trupti Desai
Head - Delivery

Her main role at RQ is to make things happen. She remembers every project ever done at RQ. Legend has it that she can find her way out of the woods even after 50 years. She is the person you call when you need to put out a fire. She will put it out for you, and then probably set you on fire after.

Opinion is divided about her Pictionary skills. She thinks she is great. Others don’t dare to contest that. She is a Targaryen at heart, but don’t mention the last season of GoT to her.

Mayur Jadhav

Mayur Jadhav
Head- Sales & Marketing

His main role at RQ is to be cool, calm and collected and throw most ideas out of the window. His habit of getting into details gets under everyone’s skin at times but has saved us from having to give free foot massages to our customers.

A big fan of south Indian movies he makes it a point to watch each movie twice- once in Hindi, then in Tamil or Telugu at a single screen near his house. A self-confessed foodie, he has all the world’s food apps on his phone. His New Year's resolution every year has a new diet plan. And after all this, he is still proud of the notion that he is the least crazy person in RQ.
