Mars is confident that with the world of expertise Marcus brings and his vast experience, he will continue to deliver quality growth. Marcus’s achievements within ITR are diverse including implementing Mars Wrigley’s current customer-centric structure. Marcus’s proudest achievements include building a very high engagement level within his team during the pandemic, and ongoing Airport customer recovery with better than ever relationships with many of our key partner customers. Jack Tabbers says: “Taking this opportunity, I would sincerely like to thank Raghav Rekhi, who’s assignment with NL/ITR will end on January 15th, he will return to his home unit of Dubai.” Raghav moved to the Netherlands in 2018 to join ITR first as Marketing Director and later into the role of Sales Director, and he demonstrated leadership in simplifying Mars Wrigley’s portfolio and driving the unit’s growth. Most recently he has overseen ITR’s recovery, which has put it ahead of the category recovery rate. Tabbers continues: “Throughout his work, Raghav’s commitment to delivering results, his passion for developing talent, coupled with a strong collaborative approach and ambassadorship of our culture have shone through and he will be much missed by the unit.”
