Prior to Tesseract, spanning close to 14.6 years in total, Krishna was with the BPO industry in Convergys (Now Concentrix) supporting Microsoft Programs. He was then in the Governance, Risk and Compliance space in a product company MetricStream, where he traveled the world, leading the training division and delivering functional, technical, and business know-how using state-of-the-art solutions for global giants across a plethora of industries and verticals. He also spent a few months each with a California-based engineering and architecture services company, Design Everest, and a Vancouver-based recruitment company, DestinationOne. He had known Tesseract for over 4 years, but joined in this role in February this year. Krishna‘s job is unique, fun, and challenging. He must know how to keep it short at times and be outrageously expressive in his imagination. Sometimes it’s about outlining the business strategy and goals for Tesseract, working with Suresh, the CEO, at times it is about supporting the learning blueprint working with Partha, the Instructional Design Head, then again, its contributions to our solutions and products with some agile feedback as he talks to Hari, the Head of Product Development. To add value for any business, to build a journey that will take them well into 5-10 years ahead is what he strives to do. In simple words, he makes a non-believer a believer, in terms of learning repertoire, products, services and solutions. The team is amazing; each one of them and the best part is the freedom given to go all out.
