Paresh Davdra is the Co-Founder and CEO of RationalFX, a foreign exchange and international payments company. Paresh has used his wealth of knowledge to steer the business towards his vision, achieving tremendous growth along the way. Last year RationalFX grew by 75% and turned over £1.3bn. Employing around 100 people, the business is set to grow its turnover by an additional 70%-80% again this year.
