Global digital transformation company GFT is looking to ramp up its UK presence with the appointment of Priya Lakshmi as chief revenue officer. 

Lakshmi has a track record of driving revenue growth in the technology and consulting industry across financial services customers.

Joining the Stuttgart-headquartered firm from Amazon Web Services, where she held the role of senior manager for world-wide professional services, Lakshmi was responsible for the team that led large transformation deals across all geographies and industries.

“The pace of digital transformation across the banking, asset management and insurance industries over the past decade has been hugely impressive,” she said. 

“I’m looking forward to helping our clients embark on this journey with confidence by leveraging our deep expertise and strong collaboration across our partnerships.”
