Raj Sundra

Bios_Raj_circle

Raj Sundra (Founder and CEO of Transformance Business Consulting), combines business strategy, project management, personal transformation, and consciously crafted culture to support companies in what he terms “Sustained, Easeful, Rapid Scale”. The result, workplaces where people love coming to work, and sustained annual growth rates of 30%-50% – with ease.

His passion for creating processes and systems to maximize human and business potential emerged at a young age. He recalls tirelessly practicing sports and studying to get good grades and be the best athlete he could be… but never quite reaching the goals he set out to reach.

Fueled by a desire to better understand how things work at the systems and people level, he earned his Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Educational Psychology from Cornell University… while at the same time competing at the National Level in nordic skiing, and at the Semi-Pro Level in soccer.

Raj’s skill set truly began to synthesize when he concurrently became 2nd in command at Speck Products (a leading iPhone and Macbook accessory maker), and began his foray into personal growth / transformational work.

At Speck Products, Raj was able to hone and integrate his talents for creating systems to support business growth, and the personal and team transformational technologies he was learning. Through this unique hybridization of maximizing business and people system potential, Raj created a workplace where creativity flowed, people were excited to come to work, deadlines were no longer missed – ultimately leading to Speck increasing annual sales from $0 to $22 million in just 3 years, earning Speck the distinction of #41 on Inc 500’s list of “Fastest Growing Private Companies.”

Raj left Speck Products in 2006 to take what he learned and support other companies in achieving Sustained, Easeful, Rapid Scale (btw Speck Products is still going strong and now upwards of a $100M company building on the foundation set by Raj and the rest of the management team). His passion, more clear than ever, is in supporting companies doing good work in the world to scale rapidly with ease while fulfilling on their mission – all while creating a high-performance, conscious culture where employees feel seen, supported and like their jobs are more than jobs to them – it’s where they get to learn and grow in a way that impacts not only their work, but their lives too.
