Ignitho Technologies, a US-based data science and digital engineering company, has named Ramesh Ramaswamy as Chief Delivery Officer. A company spokesman said Ramaswamy brings more than two decades of delivery leadership experience. He was with Cognizant and Mindtree for close to a decade each, playing key leadership roles in delivery and account management.

Ramaswamy will nurture Ignitho’s client relationships as well as develop high-performance teams as the company gets ready to cross ₹100 crore ($15 million) in revenue by 2023. He will also drive Ignitho’s India team expansion plans for Chennai to 500, which is critical to sustaining its rapid growth. The company has also lined up plans to move to a larger development center in Chennai, the spokesman added.

Its product-oriented delivery-based teams come with a product engineering mindset and discipline in agile delivery, enabling digital agility and business growth for its clients. Parent company Nuivio Ventures Inc brings together an ecosystem of innovative enterprises, early-stage investors, and entrepreneurial professionals to build software platforms and products, the spokesman said. The unique model of entrepreneurship via Nuivio Ventures provides like-minded professionals a platform to fuel their startup dreams.

Joseph Olassa, CEO, Ignitho Technologies, said the company will benefit from Ramesh Ramaswamy’s delivery expertise and industry experience. He will also collaborate with Ashin Antony, CTO, to build expertise in data science, AI, automation, and product engineering.
