New York, NY – January 07, 2015
An announcement was made today by privately held Exusia, Inc. that they had expanded their leadership team to include industry veterans Peter Gifford, Alex Zhao and Dolly Takkhi to further solidify their organizations in the United States and in India.
Peter and Alex were two of the first ten employees in well-known Knightsbridge Solutions, LLC that grew to become the largest privately held data management consulting firm in the United States prior to being acquired by Hewlett-Packard (HP) in 2006. They bring a combined 45 years of experience to Exusia and will be focused on client management and solution delivery in the Midwest and Southern regions of the United States.
Prior to joining Exusia, Peter co-founded Launchpoint, a provider of cloud-based analytic solutions and services for healthcare enterprises where he served as their VP of product development, IT operations and as the firm’s Chief Security Officer. Peter adds to Exusia’s leading information management expertise bringing experience in everything from integration, warehousing and governance to security, architecture, and visualization, to compliment his deep industry knowledge in healthcare, financial services and insurance.
Alex joined Exusia in September having spent the previous sixteen years as a Senior Principal with HP/Knightsbridge and Clarity Solutions Group, where he worked on strategic projects in the US, Canada and China. During that time Alex had the opportunity to work with and advise companies across several industry verticals, including financial services and insurance.
Dolly Takkhi joins Exusia from State Street as the Director of Operations in India. Dolly’s responsibilities encompass all aspects of the firm’s Global Efficiency Practice spanning the Operations, Legal, Human Resources, Recruiting and Finance functions in India and globally. In this role, Dolly will leverage her extensive client delivery, project, transitions and managerial experience to develop corporate strategy and to maximize the efficiency and efficacy of Exusia’s operations wherever possible and in furtherance of Exusia’s rapid growth plans.
“This is really a proud day for Exusia and a great way to kick off 2015 for us as a company as it further reinforces our objective of becoming leaders in information innovation, management and analytics” says co-founder and CEO, Trevor Silver. “As a firm we are really honored to have Peter, Alex and Dolly on our team now as we continue to expand our capabilities to meet our clients’ near term and strategic goals. This group expands our experience in Healthcare as well as in Big Data, Analytics and Cloud Computing solutions”.
Exusia grew 250% from 2012 to 2013 and has grown another 300% from 2013 to 2014. During 2014, Exusia also doubled its client list, established new business in Canada and South Africa, and expanded its delivery operations in Pune, India.
