About Ramachandra Hegde

Hailing from the beautiful land of Karkala, Udupi district, Karnataka, Ramachandra Hegde was born in the year 1958 to parents Achutha Hegde and Geetha Hegde. He completed his education at Karkala Bhuvanendra College with BCom degree. Later, he travelled and started his career in Mumbai. In the course of his career, he got an opportunity to land in Dubai and served for a construction company.

With his vast experience in construction sector and to make his dream come true, he floated his own company Spraytek Contracting LLC and Spraytek Coating LLC which is running successfully in UAE for quite some time now. Initially, the Spraytek Group was formed in 1975 to supply specialty chemicals and materials for construction and oil and gas industries. Later in the year 1990, Spraytek Coatings was formed to manufacture specialised chemicals and materials to be supplied to construction industries in UAE. Today, his company has grown to be a leading reputable manufacturer with unit situated in Ajman and head office at Dubai.

Ramachandra Hegde has given opportunity for more than 600 people, mostly from India who are serving in his company and whose families back in their home town are depending on them.

In 1992, he married Kalpana Hegde and is blessed with two beautiful daughters Rachana and Aishwarya who together are enjoying family life in Dubai.

Though fully occupied with his business, he never ignored his community where he had successfully served as president of his own Amchigele Samaj (GSB) Community organization doing social works for the community as well as to Kannadigas in large. His association has been doing blood donation campaigns and other charity works which have helped many people. Not limiting to that, the association he headed had provided platform for various children in art and other cultural activities thus exploring their talents on various occasions and honoring them. Get-togethers, sports activities, Pooja programmes, and cultural activities were some of the events Ramachandra Hegde had created to support and promote budding talents of the Samaj.

Ramachandra Hegde has been promoting various Karnataka based organisations in UAE every year by sponsoring their various events. Be it Yakshagana ballet, drama, musical evenings, get-togethers, sports days, annual day celebrations or any such social events, he has never said no to any of these programmes. He has been smilingly monetarily and personally supporting almost all cultural and association events of Kannadigas in the UAE thus promoting various languages of Karnataka and uplifting the culture and folk.

Ramachandra Hegde is also well known in his hometown for supporting needy talented children in education, and helping the poor and needy. He has been doing this for decades as a part of his ‘giving back to the community’ where he has come from and thus adding values. This has helped a lot of his people in the community to improve their living.

Hence, identifying his community service and various contribution to the society, Sharjah Karnataka Sangha on this special occasion of ‘Karnataka Rajyotsava Day Celebration and anniversary programme of 2019, will felicitate Ramachandra Hegde with ‘Mayura Viswamanya Kannadiga Award’.
