Executive Perspectives: From the President


Bharat Rupani

By Bharat Rupani

The beginning. This is where we start—together!

I am now entering my fourth week here with Retail Services, and while I am new to this role, as many of you know, I am not new to Daymon. I’ve had the opportunity over the last 18 years to work with our associates and retail teams all over the world and now I have the pleasure of getting to know our fine teams within Interactions and SAS even better.

What excites me the most is developing relationships with all of our associates and business partners within Retail Services. I’ve already started to meet with a number of our teams and am getting up to speed on where we are, what opportunities are ahead and what challenges we need to address and overcome.

As we work together, I hope to earn your respect. I realize that relationships take time to build and we must have trust and respect in order to have a mutually rewarding long-term relationship. I hope to be able to build a solid foundation with you.

I also believe in open and honest communication. I can tell you that we have really excelled in events through August and SAS is on a roll in generating record revenues and profits. Financially, it’s an encouraging picture. However, we need to stay focused on the rest of this year if we are to meet our key results as our budgets take a steep climb in the fourth quarter. We can do it, but only if each of us work together.

Throughout my career I’ve had the great fortune to travel the world and expose my family to diverse cultures and customs. Now, we are officially calling San Diego home and are thrilled to be in Southern California. While I’m working out of this office full time, know that I am a partner who is never more than a call away. If I haven’t been in your area in person yet, I hope to soon. In the meantime, thank you again and I look forward to working with you.

All my best,

Bharat Rupani
President Retail Services
