Kris Puthucode, Founder & CEO
YouTube video, which has a watermark of the year 1997, starts streaming with a question asked from the background: ‘Hey, who are you?’ The camera shows a fairly bald, nerd looking man who appears to be in his early 30s, introducing himself as ‘Jeff’ and talking about selling books through the internet and the bijou business plans he has in mind. You might have guessed it right; the one talking is the world’s richest man and the founder of amazon.com - Jeff Bezos! While ‘everything IT’ hosted a paradigm shift with the dawn of the new millennium, engendered was a bunch of self-made leaders who were the ambassadors of genuine change and the limitless possibilities of technology. Most of them not only pioneered the industry, but also created the market themselves by making a tangible difference in customers’ lives. Right from the beginning of the digital age, Krishnan (‘Kris’) Puthucode, the Founder & CEO of Software Quality Center (SQC), has been a torchbearer of making that difference within the small & large scale organizations the world over by helping them adopt the best practices across their business functions, right from Sales & Business Development to Delivery and Service.
