Rishab studied Business Marketing from Suffolk University, Massachusetts, USA. He had been quite keen from the very beginning to pursue his passion for aviation.

Establishing Rossell Techsys in 2011, he began working to set the Rossell brand synonymous with quality in the field of aerospace manufacturing.
Accomplishing multiple goals
Rishab’s passion and pioneering vision set him on the path to accomplish new challenges. Once he established the company, he embarked on his mission to set up a highly skilled team to help him achieve his goals. The journey started with appointing a CEO who could meet his criteria of having a similar passion and zest to bring about innovations in the aviation business. Together with the CEO, he had envisioned achieving the first decade milestone of INR 150 – 160 crore revenue by the turn of 2021. Thanks to the dedicated teamwork and excellent management skills, the target was accomplished sooner than estimated- in the year 2020. He has now embarked on a high growth journey that includes expanding Rossell’s global footprint in the USA, Europe and in some countries in the East. With so much on the anvil, the company aims to attain revenue of INR 2000 crore, by the turn of the next decade.
