Piyush Srivastava

Co-Founder & CEO

Piyush has a diverse work experience of 4 decades. Starting as a lecturer in economics, he moved to journalism and sales & marketing before he found his professional roots in NIIT Education and later NIIT Technologies.

While working in a technical education environment during the mid-eighties, acquiring professional knowledge like computers was a ticket to employment. He experienced a vast knowledge gap between the output from education institutes and the demands of industries. He managed initiatives in bridging the skill gap by training. He led the expansion of NIIT Education that will eventually result in NIIT producing an entire generation of computer literate young professionals.

His strong sense of the necessity of relevant education in our economy was one of the key reasons he was part of the core group that set up the prestigious NIIT University in Neemrana, Rajasthan.

In the last twelve years, he contributed to the growth of NIIT Technologies by enabling the organization to expand its software development capabilities and leading the technology intervention in the organization's operations.
