Founder & CEO Raj Thakkar was honored as one of 50 Outstanding Asian Americans in Business by the Asian American Business Development Center.  This award recognizes Asian Americans in business, from entrepreneurs to corporate executives, who have distinguished themselves in the community.  Mr. Thakkar was one of over 600 government, business and civic leaders in attendance at the gala to honor the 50 leaders and was selected nationally.

“I feel so honored and humbled to be selected, especially because Asian Americans don’t seem to be in the spotlight, the press or on TV as much as others.  It was wonderful to be part of a huge event at Cipriani’s recognizing our collective efforts and impacts, as well celebrating our heritage by encouraging us to wear traditional clothes from our respective countries.” – Raj Thakkar, Founder & CEO
