Anuradha has built large teams with strong technology and domain competencies in FinTech, AgriTech, Telecom, Retail, Health Care, Manufacturing, Legal, and IT infrastructure. “I’m excited to work with Anuradha and I welcome her to our Board of Directors,” said Dalrada’s Chairman and CEO, Brian Bonar.
Her experience includes helping to build the independent testing business for CA Technologies, Aztec (acquired by MindTree), and Infosys. Anuradha has made key contributions in these companies and others such as VeriFone and Cybercash, that has included organization building, service portfolio creation, business planning, and enabling sales and global service delivery teams.

She actively encourages second careers for everyone, and supports them with technological impetus, networking support, and go-to-market backing. Additionally, she consciously inspires younger professionals and budding entrepreneurs – a quality she picked up from her mentors.
