Dear Sir/Madam,

Ref: Application for post of Suitable Top Finance/ Management Position

I am attaching herewith my detailed CV for kind consideration for the above post.

I have had the opportunity to work for some of the best Corporate sector companies of India- DCM Ltd, and Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd. I have also been part of the initial project setup team for start up ventures in India of GKN plc and Degussa AG in India.

An exposure in East Africa with Cable Corporation Ltd. (Collaborators: Sumitomo Japan) has enriched my international commercial business exposure. Working closely with professionals from all fields has given me an insight into the workings of an Organsiation apart from its external and internal customers and dealing effectively with Government agencies and Financial Lending Institutions.

I have participated in formulation of Business strategies for product and customer mix for maximisation of profits and implementation of cost saving schemes, SWOT analysis, and Mission,vision and business ethics statements of corporate entities.

I have had in depth exposure to Indian and Foreign Financial Institutions and banks for Rupee and Foreign currency Loans from ICICI, LIC, UTI, SBICAPS, SBI OBU Bahrain, International Finance Corporation (Washington), East African Development Bank and various other Financial Institutions and Banks

I am proactive, a problem solver with initiative and excellent analytical and communication skills and well versed with computers and system implementation. I am also an author with one book to my credit.

Best regards.

Yours Sincerely,

Rajesh Rampal
