Orion Innovation has quadrupled in size and revenue in less than five years, under the leadership of CEO Raj Patil. After successfully executing an organic growth strategy fueled by aggressive M&A combinations, we now have a global footprint of over 4,750 associates.

On March 24 at 6pm EST, join CEO Raj Patil and former CEOs V. “Bala” Balasubramanian and Guy DelGrande for the Special Interest Group of Tech CEOs Fireside Session on Zoom webinar. The session will be moderated by Charter member Anjan Lahiri. He is the founder and CEO of Navikenz Inc.

Raj will share insights into a successful growth strategy and explain how we have emerged as a leader in the new breed of digital transformation players. Former Cabeus and Tekmark CEOs Bala and Guy will also share insights into pre- and post-acquisition activities and their contributions to the growth of an integrated platform.
