My name is Mitul Ruparelia. I am the founder and principal of Citius Partners.

Focusing on B2B software, services and hardware, I have built and led global GTM teams and businesses selling into telecommunications, public sector, financial services, healthcare, aviation and defence.
Having transformed a series of businesses, I founded Citius Partners to bring world-class accelerated scale and field execution strategies to B2B technology companies and their investors.
I have held leadership roles at Vision-Box, Siteimprove, BlackBerry, SAP, Sybase 365 and Mobile 365.

I recognise the value of theory, but my approach is instinctively hands-on by nature. I was the lead design and sales authority on the worldwide patent for the System and Method for Intelligent Routeback that delivered the $150m+ annual recurring revenue mentioned above.
I’ve been interviewed on CNBC and quoted in The Economist, The Times and other publications.
“Mitul is a very talented individual and was part of my leadership team at BlackBerry. During the turnaround of BlackBerry, he played an instrumental role in leading a team that built a strong carrier channel business across the globe, where he personally signed strategic partnerships with tier 1 carriers. In addition, Mitul managed the EMEA channel business delivering strong performance with double-digit year-on-year growth and the channel business was a vital part of the EMEA success.
Mitul has both a strategic and an operational capability which is a rare combination. He is bright, articulate and focused and has a very strong work ethic.”
Carl Wiese, Chief Revenue Officer, Poly
“I had the pleasure of having Mitul in my team for a few months, during which time he successfully drove, or had key contributions to, several projects. For example, in the telecom and healthcare industries, mobility and our engagement model with our largest customers.
Mitul’s dependability and capacity for multi-threading were extremely valuable in this demanding, project-oriented role. His polished communication skills, both written and oral, were recognised and appreciated by many and did make a difference in complex, sometimes challenging environments. Mitul, I hope our paths cross again in the future!”
David Bergonzo, Vice President, Market Transformation, SAP
“Mitul is an amazing individual and top talent. I had the pleasure to have him in my team. His hard work, level of customer and partner intimacy, ability to manage people, and solve complex issues smoothly, are extraordinary. Mitul fights for the business, for his people and for success. He is fun to work with, too, which is always a plus. The guy you want with you, not against you.”
Florian Bienvenu, Chief Revenue Officer, Vision-Box
“Mitul was a key advisor to my business. He is a vested leader and leads by example. He has an incredible work ethic and understands how best to align the channel perfectly to drive incremental business. I always counted on Mitul’s support to help create and drive some of the largest deals we did in the UK and I can unequivocally advocate for him being the best channel leader I have had the pleasure of working with.”
Mihir Andrei Mukherjee, Chief Executive Officer, Unipac
“I have worked with Mitul for the past three years, and am constantly impressed by his dedication and tenacity. Mitul balances the needs of the channel with the needs of his own organisation brilliantly, ensuring that the spirit of partnership is felt on both sides.
Mitul is an inspirational business leader, with a track record of success. I hope to work with him for many years to come.”
Alan Giles, Group Chief Commercial Officer, Voxsmart
“I worked alongside Mitul for several years and would be very happy to do so again. His technical command and his diligence in meeting customer expectations were fundamental to the successful development of the largest global messaging provider of recent years.”
