Raghu Hariharan is a brilliant and talented analyst and an absolute pleasure to work with. He has a remarkable ability to turn complex data sets into keen insights that directly influence the most important decisions of a business. He’s also one of the most personable and genuine people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I cannot recommend Raghu strongly enough.
If you ever have the opportunity to work with Raghu, take it immediately. His quality of work is only matched by the width of his smile, while pulling all-nighters to work on your latest quant project. Raghu and I worked on creating the first Wildfire survey and corresponding infographic. He's a skilled quant guy but also brings a business perspective to his work far beyond his years. The success of the report hinged on Raghu's efforts - and we had an incredible amount of coverage and press following. Highly recommended.
I worked with Raghu at The NewsMarket in the summer of 2007, when Raghu was an intern, reporting to me. Raghu struck me as an extremely diligent worker with the unique ability to balance his strong grounding in analytical problem solving with a creative, big picture mindset. Raghu has a great intuition for uncovering promising business opportunities and the resolve to turn them into reality. Raghu is a personable guy that people trust and enjoy working with. I have no doubt that Raghu will make waves in the business world and am excited to track his career as it unfolds.
I worked with Raghu while doing customer development for our recruiting analytics module at JobScore. Raghu is a whiz with numbers and analysis and his strategic thinking helped refine our thinking. Unlike some analysts, raghu is much more than a talker... with blinding speed he built and iterated pivot table prototypes to test his theories - and ultimately prove his points.
