Management Team

Dream. Dare. Do – that is Suyati’s work principle in a nutshell.

Mukund Krishna

Founder, CEO

In a remarkable career spanning a little over 20 years, Mukund has moved across continents, and risen from Systems Engineer to heading his own company. In between, he has gained hands-on experience in delivering global IT solutions for various businesses, including B2B and B2C Software, Engineering Services, Automotive, Consulting and Utility industries, working at companies ranging from GM to Fifth Gear.

As the Founder/CEO, he is the prime driver of Suyati’s leap towards excellence, and is the true inspiration behind Suyati’s much admired corporate culture. Today, Mukund heads companies in the IT, digital marketing and content creation spheres, and ensures they constantly innovate and deliver world-class products and solutions. Mukund’s areas of expertise include technology and team leadership, revenue generation and sales, budget control, technology selection, staffing, employee retention, risk mitigation, and supplier relations.

When not spearheading new ideas at Suyati, Mukund loves to travel and to speak to start-ups and entrepreneurs. He is also deeply into spirituality and philanthropy. He holds an MS from the State University of New York at Buffalo, and an MBA from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.

Vincent N P

Director—Human Resources

Vincent, one of Suyati’s key pillars of success, has more than 20 years of extensive experience in Human Resources. In fact, the company attributes its impressively low attrition rate to his well-developed HR policies that keep employees productive and happy! Vincent encourages an atmosphere that helps employees express themselves. He has evolved his ideas from multiple industries, developing teams across continents, with companies like Fifth Gear and Himachal Futuristic Communications.

At Suyati, he has been instrumental in building the team from 9 to 100+, as well as creating Suyati’s forward looking HR policies in talent acquisition, development and retention, employee engagement, and rewards. Perhaps, his most appreciated contributions are on institutionalizing family-work-life balance, fun @ work, performance management systems, and e-Learning initiatives. Vincent is an active proponent of the Scrum way of working.

He hates being tied to his desk, and always makes it a point to walk around chatting. True to his active nature, he has varied interests including running, farming, and making wine! What is closest to his heart though is the time he spends counselling youngsters, something he does regularly. He has a Master’s Degree in Human Resource Management from Rajagiri College of Social Sciences.
