“Through his leadership, Mr. Rajagopalan has attracted incredible talent and grown a capital raising team that has been critical to the company’s growth and success,” Trez said. “As an integral member of the Trez Capital executive leadership team, Mr. Rajagopalan has been responsible for leading all retail capital raising activities for the past five years and has expanded Trez Capital’s footprint with major retail institutions.”
