Rakesh Sharma

Rakesh is a firm believer in meritocracy for all aspects race, gender, colour and religious beliefs and as a result the organisation now has their first ever ethnic minority CFO, first ever ethnic minority and first female NEDs. The organisation works on the ethos that setting the standard from the top leads to trickle down of opportunity at all levels throughout the company. Not only is Rakesh an independent member of a high immigrant Multi Academy Trust but he has also issued a policy for all of his business units to be involved with their local schools with work experience and internships. In addition, he has been heavily critical, and written to the Davies Commission, of the bias towards women on Boards when there is more discrimination towards ethnic minorities and is delighted that there is now a commission aimed towards improving equality and inclusion for the BAME community as well.
