WhiteSparrow Communications started its journey with the aim to conquer the world of online and offline advertising and branding under the able leadership of Rajpal Ghai, fondly know as RP Ghai. The foundation of this end-to-end marketing solutions provider was laid in 2013, and in mere three years, the vision and dedication of the Founder and CEO, Rajpal Ghai, has ensured meteoric growth.

Mr. Ghai is a true-blue Mumbai lad, who spent the initial 28 years of his life in this bustling metropolitan. It is here, in Mumbai, Mr. Ghai honed his creative skills, and went on to earn a post-graduate diploma in marketing from the prestigious SIES College of Management Studies, Navi Mumbai. Mr. Ghai passed his marketing studies with flying colors and was ranked among the top three positions of the Institute.

After completing in Post Graduation in Marketing, Mr. Ghai joined the retail giant Shoppers Stop Ltd. where he donned multiple caps. He started out as a Management Trainee, and had the distinction of being the only trainee to undertake a strategic assignment with the Managing Director of Shoppers Stop. Mr. Ghai was then promoted to Department Manager, where he had to train and manage Retail Coordinators to achieve their department goals. Appreciating his farsighted vision and ability to think innovatively, Mr. Ghai was soon promoted to an Assistant Merchandiser.. Here, he demonstrated his business acumen by increasing the Knit section’s sale by over 50 per cent.

Mr. Ghai moved to Chandigarh in 2009 to take over the mantle of Deputy Director, Marketing and Corporate Communications, for Chandigarh Group of Colleges, Mohali. He showed his acumen for creativity, innovativeness and thinking out-of-the-box by coming up result-oriented marketing strategies and advertising programs. Through exhilarating and informative brand-building activities, Mr. Ghai was instrumental for increasing the student strength from 8,000 students in 2009 to a massive 13,000 students in 2013.

After accomplishing the responsibilities that he was given at Chandigarh Group of Colleges, Mr. Ghai wanted to make a difference in the world of advertising and marketing. This paved way for WhiteSparrow Communications, whose saga is still being written in the annals of the marketing world. However, the drumrolls are already sounding for WhiteSparrow Communications by those who have had the good fortune of being associated with this unique Digital agency and benefitted from Mr. Ghai’s creativity and business foresight.

His professional and educational credentials stand testimony to his capable leadership that has made WhiteSparrow Communications a force to reckon with in the world of creative advertising. Mr. Ghai is a young visionary, who has climbed the peak of success at an early age, but his humble attitude and winning personality are a point of learning for those who aspire to emulate him.
