Sriram Sundararaman

Technical Account Lead

I am an avid learner, technophile and a passionate IT professional with over 20 years of industry experience across various technologies, domains and clients. Since having begun my career on my birthday, I have been fortunate to have played a multitude of roles from being a programmer to an architect to a delivery leader. Over the last few years, I have become deeply involved in enabling digital transformation and cloud adoption for several clients in the healthcare, media, entertainment and sports industries. In 2021, I had the opportunity to join PeerIslands and move to Cayman Islands with my family. Since then, the journey has been wonderful with a lot of experience, learnings and interactions. I am an ardent admirer of the diversified heritage, religions and culture that is synonymous with India. Besides being a technologist, I love travelling, running, exploring new places and a big-time foodie of all kinds of cuisines.
