The people behind a company are as important as the company itself. Who's Who in the Zoo, a recurring blog series that puts faces to the names. This month’s Who’s Who is our fabulous friend, Suyash Awasthi, Appirio's Global MuleSoft Practice Leader. Let’s get to know him a little better…
What's something not many people know about you?
I am a history buff and have been riding motorbikes since my teens.
What is something worth standing up for in your opinion?
What are you looking forward to most about this fall?
Taking out my mountain bike, as the sun is a little less harsh in the fall around the San Francisco Bay area hills.
What is something you have yet to do on your bucket list?
Trekking in the Higher Himalayas and Mt. Kailash.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
Time travel. Would be cool to live the history.
What movie can you watch over and over without ever getting tired of?
What was cool when you were young but is not cool now?
Binge drinking :)
What is the best life lesson everyone should learn?
Take risks when you are young and be passionate about what you do.
Who is your hero and why?
Ashoka, the famous Indian emperor and conqueror, who ruled most of the Indian subcontinent around 300 BC. One can learn a lot of modern lessons from his life about the emphasis on education, foreign policy, conservation of wildlife, and above all self-reformation as one progresses in the journey of life. He was also a promoter of Buddhism beyond India.
What does a Global Practice Head do?
In my role, I manage the Global MuleSoft Practice for Appirio and in my role, I am accountable for the success of this practice and all the metrics that define success, e.g., bookings, revenue, talent, delivery, certification, alliance, solution, and accelerators, etc.
What attracted you to this role and company?
I was able to see the opportunity in the challenges and issues. I knew this was a great opportunity to turn a small business into something huge.
