For Gaurav, calculated risks are worth taking if they are in harmony with the vision of the future. Before imagining TruKKer, he spent 12 distinguished years with pre-eminent international consulting firms such as Arup and AECOM, a Fortune 500 consulting major where he went on to become the youngest Director at the age of 32. Over his consulting career he managed key client accounts, led the delivery of major projects in the Middle East including the delivery of world’s largest indoor theme park – Warner Bros. Abu Dhabi, a 10million sq. ft. health care master plan and the awardwinning Yas Mall project – to name a prominent few client engagements.

It was then – courtesy of a seminal lightbulb moment during a dinner party – he jumped into conceptualizing TruKKer, a Uber for trucks, to address unmet needs in the land-freight sector in the MENA.

Since its foray into UAE in 2016, and then expanding to the neighboring markets of KSA & Egypt, TruKKer has scaled up its operations further in Oman, Bahrain, Jordan, Turkey, Kazakhstan and Poland serving 1,000+ B2B Clients with 60,000+ Trucks inducted on our platform.

As TruKKer’s CEO, Gaurav is responsible for all commercial and operational targets of the firm husting for its growth. Under his stewardship, TruKKer’s growth journey has been phenomenal, and the firm has evolved to become the numero uno player in the region.

Gaurav has also spearheaded TruKKer’s fund-raising efforts culminating into three successful institutional rounds led by marquee investors including Investcorp, Mubadala, ADQ, STV, RTF, IFC amongst others.

Gaurav is trained as a structural engineer in the UK, and he later pursued his MBA.
