/ / What I do at Synechron

Helping Financial Services organizations in their journey of Digital Transformation

I’m responsible for Synechron’s business in the Middle East. In my capacity as Head of Business Operations, I focus on strategic client engagements while keeping an eye on the evolving technical landscape. Our clients rely on us for the best possible solutions to their business challenges through optimal use of process automation and technology.


Relentless pursuit of excellence is our culture at Synechron.

/ / Why I joined Synechron

High octane environment, aspirational challenges and strong work ethics

I may have joined Synechron for its fast-paced growth and challenging environment, but what kept me going over the years has been its culture. I’m very lucky to have worked alongside exemplary colleagues, and I’m proud of our team that works tirelessly to surpass the clients’ expectations.

/ / MY SKILLs, qualifications and experience

My best skill is my ability to learn new technologies

I hold Bachelors and Masters degrees in Computer Science. I’ve had opportunities to attend some management and technology courses at NYU, MIT and the Wharton School as well.

My experience is largely in building enterprise systems for Banking & Capital Markets clients in London, New York and Dubai. I’ve been lucky to be part of elite teams that built OMS, FX Trading, Market Data, and Regulatory Reporting systems for global financial services players.

Data Strategies along with applied AI and Blockchain are my areas of research. I’ve authored several Whitepapers and delivered keynote speeches around these topics.

/ / My personal interests

If I had all the time in the world, I’d spend it reading

Apart from science fiction and biographies of prominent global leaders, I also like to read about space technology. I believe space is truly the final frontier in technology and research – where else would you launch a system without having a test environment.
