We have such a great team at B&G / Carib Blue that we’ve decided to celebrate them with a monthly Staff Spotlight profile, so our client community can get to know them a bit better! This month’s staff in the spotlight is Raju!
Raju’s full name is Nareshwar Gurdat. Born and raised in Berbice, Guyana, Raju excelled at school, and his first job was as an accounting teacher in Guyana. In 2003, Raju moved to BVI to follow a job opportunity. He put down roots here after meeting his wonderful wife, Shantel. Shantel is currently studying in Florida, and lives there during the school year with their four children: Shante, 11; twins Shayne and Shayna, 8; and Shamar, who will be turning 4 next week. Raju said that the highlight of his year is summertime, when his family is together here in the BVI.
