About Rajes Kumar
A strategic leader with over a decade of comprehensive experience, I have built my reputation as an innovative, results-driven professional with a track record of operational excellence and leadership across various sectors. From my early days in numerous industries to my current roles as Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer at the Singapore-HUJ Alliance for Research and Enterprise (SHARE), Founder-in-Residence at the Singapore Deep-Tech Alliance, I've been at the forefront of crafting and executing strategies that drive organizational growth and transformation.
My career trajectory began in the military with the Singapore Army as a Commando where discipline, precision, and leadership were instilled in me. My journey has spanned the educational sector, where I mentored teaching staff, and where I've led curriculum planning, management, and strategic initiatives at both school and cluster levels. I subsequently pivoted to the business world. My tenure in the FMCG sector also refined my expertise in business development, market planning, and strategic partnerships, resulting in notable brand expansion and revenue growth.
At SHARE, I've overseen significant projects, managing more than $100 million in grants and supervising key areas like finances, operations, HR, legal matters, and public relations. My holistic understanding of business law and a Doctorate in Organizational Leadership and Management make me adept at navigating complex operational challenges and ensuring sustainable growth.
Always keen on continuous learning and growth, I have earned various certifications like the CEO Programme from Singapore Management University and have been recognized as one of the Top 10 NTU Singapore Alumni Leaders. As I continue to chart my path forward, I remain dedicated to creating value, promoting excellence, and making a lasting impact in every venture I undertake.
I'm a blend of strategic vision, operational prowess, and a deep-seated passion for fostering growth and innovation. Whether it's leading teams, managing multi-million dollar grants, or driving business strategies, I bring a holistic approach backed by a wealth of experience, knowledge, and an undying zeal to excel. My goal remains consistent: to lead with integrity, foster growth, and deliver results.
In essence, my strengths lie in strategic planning, business development, operations management, and team leadership, evidenced by numerous recognitions including the Gourmand World Book Award, Asia Pacific Anti-Additive Taste Awards, and scholarships from esteemed institutions. Beyond accolades, I am deeply committed to fostering collaborative environments, driving innovation, and mentoring the next generation of leaders.
