Knowlarity, the world’s leading cloud communications company, has recently appointed Ajay Shrivastava, as its Chief Technology Officer. Ajay was the the Head of Technology at OYO Rooms before. Ajay has been a technical leader in start-ups as well as established global leaders such as Intel, Adobe, Microsoft, Expedia, SlideShare, LinkedIn and OYO. Considered a veritable tech wizard, he specializes in high-performance execution of technology and will be bringing this prowess on board at Knowlarity to further bolster its tech infrastructure.
At OYO, Ajay spearheaded the seeding and growing of OYO’s technology and team from scratch.
