Episode 37: Rajeev Kapur (1105 Media), Orange County, CA, USA

It’s hard enough to build a great company. Turning a struggling company around into a success is a special talent — an area where YPO member Rajeev Kapur truly excels. Although Kapur began his career as a Sales Rep at Dell, he soon found his true passion repairing broken marketing strategies and capturing new business opportunities. He ran part of Dell China, launched Dell India and turned around financially challenged markets of Singapore and Taiwan within six months. After Dell, Kapur used his talents as a turnaround specialist and global business and technology leader to lead once-struggling companies, including Smarthome, Sonic Emotion, and his latest, 1105 Media, to success. In this episode, Kapur shares his secrets for leading talent and building a culture that supports sustainable business growth.
