Kindly enumerate your background and how did you become an inextricable part of Genaxy?
I am a postgraduate in chemistry and started my career from the grassroots level. After gaining around 12 years of diverse experience in the initial brands I worked with, I became Vice President of a Pharmaceutical Company and led 750 bright minds. From there on, the leadership journey of mine began.

In 1994, I ideated a consultancy company and got in touch with a global giant in biotechnology called Axygen Scientific. They approached me to launch the company in India. I took up the contract of 5 years, appointed a team and trained the entire team. The project became an enormous success in the country. In 1999, Axygen was well-established, and the contract we signed expired by then. Later, Axygen Scientific wanted me to be a founding member for a subsidiary - Axygen India. In 2000, I received an additional responsibility as the Director of Axygen US for
international business development.

Through the journey, I had the opportunity of launching the brand across Asia - China, Thailand, the Philippines, Hong Kong and more than 30 countries on the whole. I was involved in contacting end-users and ensuring that Axygen becomes a leader in its segment and increases its market share in South East Asia. We became No. 1 in the specified market segment. At the same time, I started collaborating with various global companies and got some of the top international brands into our fold in India. In 2008, we changed the name to Genaxy Scientific India.

Starting his career journey from grassroots-level, Navneet Trehan became Vice President of a leading Pharmaceutical company and led 750 members at the age of 32
