"Gaurav Sharma has an incredible track record driving growth within enterprise technology companies, and we’re excited to have him as a co-founder, leading the business in our first international market that has emerged strongly from the pandemic and shows incredible potential across a diverse range of industry sectors from banking and financial services to retail, public sector, telecommunications, construction and logistics," said BluePi founders Pronam Chatterjee and Kaushik Khanna.
Gaurav Sharma has more than 20 years of consulting and sales experience in the IT Industry.
He joins the company from Cognizant, where he worked as ANZ vice president and head of industries business.
Sharma previously worked for HCL (most recently as vice president for Australia and head of sales for various industry sectors), and for Tech Mahindra (most recently as APAC head of airlines business).
It was his first role with Tech Mahindra – principal relationship manager for Qantas – that in 2006 brought Sharma to Australia from Germany, where he was working as a senior consultant at Siemens Information Systems.
Sharma holds bachelor's and master's degrees in computer science, both from Banaras Hindu University (India).
"The innovations that BluePi has pioneered will completely transform enterprise digital business models and I’m thrilled with the opportunity to bring our skills, knowledge and experience to enable customers and partners in Australia and New Zealand to leverage new-age technologies," said Sharma.
BluePi expects its presence in Sydney will accelerate its growth in the ANZ region.
The company offers consulting and strategic solutions across cloud, data, AI driven supply chain and app modernisation, and has particular expertise in the retail, BFSI, and logistics industries.
BluePi is an AWS premier consulting partner, and also has relationships with Snowflake, Databricks, GCP and Cloudera.
