From the outset, Raman Agarwal’s value-based leadership, conviction, passion, and drive have provided the impetus behind Akran Marketing transitioning into an industrial strength corporation. Key to Akran’s success is its ability to increase efficiencies to satisfy traditional demand and to use innovation to deliver value that goes beyond cost savings to create new markets and satisfy new demand.
“Innovation and responsiveness is what an entrepreneur is all about,” Agarwal points out. “Akran demonstrates the importance of quick turnaround, exceptional quality, and in parallel with that, outstanding customer service. Our customers realize that we deliver on expectations and can give them all the promotional product branding capabilities they need now and in the future – and all within their budget.”
Agarwal’s personal philosophy is to “Do good for the sake of it, out of altruism.” “Measure your success, not by profits, but by the satisfaction you bring to your clients, employees, family and community,” says Agarwal. He is a proponent of the view that companies need to bring value to the world by contributing to the communities in which they operate and by protecting the environment for future generations. This philosophy was formalized in establishing the Akran Foundation.
