Cactus Communications was founded in April 2002 as a company providing professional
English editing services to clients in East Asia. Today,
Cactus offers related services such as English educational services and English transcription. Our clients include individuals, corporations,
institutions from countries around the world, like Japan, China, Korea, USA and UK.
Co-founder & CEO
As Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Abhishek brings to CACTUS entrepreneurial vision; a rich, in-depth understanding of customer needs; and strong leadership qualities.
During his travels through Asia as an AIESEC consultant, Abhishek came across a number of people who were not entirely comfortable communicating with the English-speaking world. When he helped a Japanese professor edit a research paper, he realized the desideratum for a professional service that edits English documents for non-native English speakers. This proved to be the genesis of Editage.
Abhishek has spent considerable time traveling to universities and research institutes across Asia to understand customer needs and build relationships. After setting up CACTUS’ first international office in Japan in 2007, he immersed himself into the Japanese business and culture for 3 years, thereby ensuring a base for CACTUS’ largest market. Since 2012, Abhishek has since been involved in global strategy and new initiatives. He currently drives the academia side of the business through his rich understanding of client expectations.
Before establishing CACTUS, Abhishek was actively involved with the Mumbai and Japan chapters of the international non-profit organization AIESEC, where he donned various hats. Abhishek holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from University of Mumbai, India.
