Sudhakar Rao promoted as National Channels Director, Hitachi Data Systems
“Early to Bed, Early to Rise,” is Sudhakar Rao’s secret of success. This principle keeps him fit and fine, and enabled him to conquer goals successively. He always believed that a good ecosystem in the working place is very essential.

Rao joined HDS in 2001 as Regional Director of the western region of the company in India. His new responsibilities include enhancing the development of new markets through a 100 percent channel-centric approach. Rao has been instrumental in Hitachi Data Systems’ success in India. He has more than nine years of experience in the storage industry.

Prior to joining Hitachi Data Systems, Rao held positions at IBM and EMC. He persued Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics from Swami Vivekananda Education Society, Mumbai and did a Masters in Business Administration in Marketing from Somaiya Management College, Mumbai.

Xerox India appoints Ravi Venkatraman as Director, Xerox Global Services
In any interaction there is always learning, whether it is correcting a thought process, a new word or a new idea, believes Ravi Venkatraman. This has helped him to keep the myth aside, “To be a successful leader you got to know how to manage your people.” For him, leadership is ‘managing business by agreements.’ “Early in my career I realized that to eat an elephant, you have to have it one bite at a time,” says Venkatraman who has 19 years of industry experience.
