Sadiq Khan, who was re-elected as Mayor of London last week, has reappointed India-born Rajesh Agrawal as the Deputy Mayor for Business in the England capital.
“I’m hugely grateful for the opportunity to serve Londoners for the second term as their Deputy Mayor for business,” Agrawal wrote on twitter.
“London has been incredibly generous to me and I promise to continue giving my 100% to serve it,” he added.
Born and raised in Indore, India, Rajesh moved to London in 2001 with £200 in his pocket. As an entrepreneur he founded two global businesses from scratch – RationalFX in 2005, and Xendpay in 2014, both companies utilising technology to reduce the cost of international money transfer for businesses and individuals.
He was first appointed in this role in 2016 and has since driven business & economic brief from London’s City Hall through the unprecedented crisis caused by Brexit & COVID-19.
The Mayor on Tuesday also announced key senior appointments who will work with him to “drive forward London’s recovery from the pandemic and create a fairer, more equal and more prosperous city.”
Sadiq has made ‘jobs, jobs, jobs’ a top priority for his second term in office and has vowed to do everything he can to put young Londoners at the heart of the capital’s recovery.
