September 20, 2021

Entura has recently filled a number of key positions across our offices in Australia and India.

These roles will strengthen and support Entura’s delivery of sustainable power and water projects across the Indo-Pacific region.

Rajeev Raina has been appointed as Director and Team Leader of Entura’s India operations and Delhi office.

Rajeev joined Entura in 2010. He was previously a senior consultant, and has a wealth of civil engineering knowledge and experience. He is particularly experienced in structural analysis and detailed design for hydropower projects.

“We are very pleased that Rajeev has stepped into this role,” said Entura’s Director of Hydropower and Headworks.

“We are confident that he will provide excellent leadership to our India team as we integrate Entura’s services across all our offices to respond to strong demand from our clients and the market.”

Ajit Garg, our India-based Business Development Manager since 2007, will continue to serve as a key contact for Entura’s hydropower clients across South Asia, from his new base in Australia.

“Ajit has made excellent contributions to developing Entura India’s capability and services over many years, including growing the business in the areas of hydropower and other forms of renewable energy,” said Director of Sales, Strategy and Commercial, Amanda Ashworth.

Shekhar Prince was recently appointed as International Business Development Manager. Shekhar is based in our Melbourne office.

“Shekhar has more than 20 years of experience in sales, leadership and business development roles in the power industry, working with many energy businesses and as an independent consultant,” said Amanda Ashworth.

“Shekhar will be instrumental in driving and delivering Entura’s international sales strategy, as we continue to deliver quality outcomes for our key clients and regions and jointly plan for the time when travel restriction ease.”

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Entura has maintained a strong focus on the health and safety of our staff. Members of our India team have worked from home to avoid unnecessary exposure, while still maintaining project progress and strong client relationships.

“Though COVID is still disrupting life as we know it, we want to be here for our clients more than ever to help them to meet their objectives and deliver their outcomes,” said Amanda Ashworth.

“It is critical that we maintain momentum towards a better, safer future through decarbonisation of the economy, including increasing renewable energy’s contribution, and using sustainable solutions for water quality and security.”
