While 2020 has been challenging on so many fronts, I wanted to take a pause to express gratitude and excitement for some of the great successes JIFFY.ai has achieved. Our company has had a transformative year. We proudly announced our Series A funding and launched our few brand this summer. And we are aggressively working on the next spectacular chapter of our growth story.
Since our funding announcement in June, we have been investing in our growth exactly as we outlined. One of the critical investments is in our leadership team. Over the last couple of months, we have added two savvy leaders who will strengthen our ability to build trust in the marketplace and accelerate innovation for our clients across the globe.
Algernon Callier (Al) – Head of Business Development
Al is an experienced leader, communicator, and builder across multiple business segments, with a focus on Digital Transformation, Innovation & Technology Strategy, and Brand Development. He is a founding partner of Reaction Global, a new Venture Capital organization founded by Stanford executive alumni and a named co-inventor on patents achieved for Facial Recognition technology. Al has been recognized as a winning honoree of the Digital Edge 50 Award from IDG’s CIO organization, among other towering achievements.
Mahesh Vaidya – Head of Strategic Development and Partnerships
Mahesh is a Wharton alumnus and a seasoned executive, having worked with innovative companies across sectors and investing successfully across multiple geographies and through economic cycles. He is a former General Partner of Epsilon Venture Partners, a VC and growth equity fund focused on technology opportunities in digital infrastructure across South and SE Asia. He had led investments in and served on the Board of companies such as policybazaar.com and Imanis Data. His stint with Intel Capital was successful in making it a top-quartile VC in India.
I am so pleased to have these exceptional leaders join us as our company continues to grow. The future is bright for a new era of intelligent automation, and JIFFY.ai is proud to be at the forefront.
