In March 2020, Ahluwalia brought his long and illustrious career in the finance sector to an end and transitioned into the role of CEO & Co-Founder of KeeperHR, working alongside Dean to build out the company.
FREMONT, CA: J.P. Morgan Chase executive Vishal Ahluwalia is set to take up the role of CEO of KeeperHR, a new right-brain HR tech company. KeeperHR leverages a series of questions answered with Imagery to provide data-driven insights about people. The outcomes of this process, augmented by data analytics and behavioral science, can then be applied by organizations to build strong, cohesive teams with a diversity of thought, ultimately enhancing employee engagement and retention, while also facilitating research and data collection for continuous improvement of cultural insights.
"The idea of KeeperHR is to capitalize on what the incoming workforce is already doing—using digital media to express themselves, connect with other people, and share their passions digitally—and turn that into a tool for the hiring process." - Ritesh Patel, Chief Digital Officer - Health at Ogilvy. Dean Graziano, the founder of KeeperHR, carried cheeky images into the workplace to revolutionize the way employers assess soft skills. He has also founded companies like uZoom and Visible Technologies.
"I am excited to transition from JP Morgan Chase, to take over as Co-Founder & CEO of KeeperHR. During my 20+ year career going from managing over 1000 people in tea gardens at the age of 19 all the way to managing large global workforces in companies like UBS, and Credit Suisse, I recognize soft skills as a tremendous driver of a company's culture and overall success. KeeperHR gives organizations the power to leverage those skills. I am pleased to announce the foray and activities of KeeperHR in global markets and the launch of the platform in the B2C space," stated Ahluwalia.
Graziano added another feather to his cap in 2019 after having a successful pitch meeting with leadership and innovation expert Vishal Ahluwalia. Ahluwalia instantly knew that Graziano was onto something special. In March 2020, Ahluwalia brought his long and illustrious career in the finance sector to an end and transitioned into the role of CEO & Co-Founder of KeeperHR, working alongside Dean to build out the company. KeeperHR has been associated closely with firms like Vodafone, Ogilvy, Ernst & Young, First Abu Dhabi Bank, Merck, Geometry, and Capgemini, across the Banking, Telecom, Consulting, and Pharmaceutical industries.
