Triterras Appoints Chief Technology Officer
SINGAPORE, May 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Triterras Inc. (Nasdaq: TRIT, TRITW) (“Triterras” or the “Company”), a leading fintech company for trade and trade finance, today announced that it has appointed Sri Vasireddy as Chief Technology Officer, effective immediately.
Mr. Vasireddy has been working as Chief Technical Advisor to the Company since January 2021 and has over 20 years of experience in information technology, cloud computing and systems integration. Prior to joining Triterras, Vasireddy served as CTO of global services and solutions at Hitachi Vantara, where he led the Cloud and the IoT Solutions-as-a-Service platform business. He joined Hitachi through an acquisition of REAN Cloud, a business he founded. REAN Cloud was recognized as a top technology company in Northern Virginia and won a historic US$950 million DoD (U.S. Department of Defense) cloud services contract before being acquired by Hitachi. Vasireddy was also an early employee in Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Worldwide Public Sector team and has led key migration and modernization projects for several global organizations.
“We are thrilled to have someone of Sri’s experience and capabilities leading our technology team,” said Srinivas Koneru, Chairman and CEO of Triterras. “His track record of building outcome-oriented teams to drive cloud-based transformations at leading organizations is unparalleled. Since joining Triterras, he has made a substantial impact on our Company, introduced a culture of design thinking while more than doubling the headcount of our talented tech professionals, improving the security infrastructure of the Kratos platform, and laying the groundwork for future seamless integrations of new service offerings, acquisitions and strategic partnerships.”
“I am excited to be joining Triterras at an inflection point in its growth trajectory,” said Vasireddy. “The Company’s mission of digitizing the traditionally paper-based industry of trade finance aligns well with my experience of transitioning technology ecosystems across industries to cloud-native platforms. I am fortunate to be surrounded by a tremendous team of professionals who are dedicated to creating a customer-centric experience leveraging the cloud.”
In addition to scaling the firm’s tech team in the last four months, in the coming months Vasireddy plans to onboard new Technical Program Managers, Principal Solutions Architects, Product Owners, Developers, and Quality Assurance Automation Professionals.
Vasireddy is based in the Washington, D.C. area, and reports to CEO Srinivas Koneru. He holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science from George Mason University and an MBA from Duke University.
The technology team was previously led by Senior Vice President Ashish Srivastava who has assumed the position of Chief Commercial Officer with the Company.
In March, Triterras announced that it signed a letter of intent to acquire Invoice Bazaar, a Dubai-based supply chain finance platform; and that it formed a strategic partnership with Western Union Business Solutions. The company also launched a Logistics Module in partnership with Seven Oceans in January, and an Insurance Module in a partnership with Marsh last September.
In addition, the Kratos platform was recognized in December when the platform won the Singapore Founder category of the FinTech Awards issued by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
