Achiever's Success Story

With 27 years of rich experience, Mr. Rajesh Desai’s professional journey stands inspiring

Mr. Rajesh Desai is best described as an optimist with unmatched persistence. His life-transforming decision was the one when he took the challenge to start Lyra India from absolute zero. His goal was to establish Lyra as a major player in the digital payment industry and his journey towards his goal was filled with challenges, hardships and obstacles metamorphosed in a satisfying and exciting way.  Thanks to his passion, clear vision and decisiveness, today Lyra is one of India’s most recognized and preeminent paytech partners.

Mr. Rajesh is a “big picture” thinker who comes from a techno-functional background. Being with lyra India since day one, he has launched various strategies with cross-functional teams to define, influence and realize the organization’s shared vision. The strategy roadmap defined under his leadership has helped Lyra India to cross many thresholds and milestones over the past decade and to bag partnerships with the major banks in India and several government organizations.

With more than 27 years of experience and field expertise, he is a result Driven and Value Oriented Leader who has a proven record of building, nurturing and leading high-performance goals along with bringing innovation with extreme passion to register inorganic growth and profit. Under his leadership, Lyra India has fostered a work culture that promotes team-building, accountability, and honesty as well as appreciates constructive criticism and the mutual learning curve. What started as a shared cornered office has now flourished with multiple office spaces.

As a part of his professional journey, he has also been associated with many prestigious organizations. Having scaled massive heights of success throughout his career, he has won prestigious awards. His experience as a business leader has also led to the company bagging numerous awards for innovative solutions. Managing the work-life balance, Rajesh firmly believes that instead of prioritizing the schedule, one has to schedule the priorities.
