In 1999 Sreedhar Veeramachaneni started a humble IT Solutions firm built on teamwork, family and collaboration.
Chief Executive Officer
In 1999, driven by a steadfast commitment to provide an avenue for clients to receive affordable technology, Sreedhar Veeramachaneni impassionedly acted to make his vision of creating a value-centric IT services and solutions company a reality when he founded System Soft Technologies. He was originally joined by a small but cohesive group that worked tirelessly to pool their individual talents, share ideas and learn best practices. From the inception, Sreedhar adhered to a strict pledge to hire the best of the best–only bringing on those associates with advanced technical skills, and who embodied strong core values. With the unyielding support of his team, Sreedhar has steadily captained the company’s growth to a present day level, and he cites integrity and dependability as having formed the bedrock for the continued growth of System Soft Technologies.
Today, Mr. Veeramachaneni is recognized as an imaginative and innovative veteran of the IT services and solutions industry. His path to success, however, was first paved in India, where he pointedly pursued his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering. With his degree in hand, Sreedhar started out as an Engineer in Training at Skansen Engineering, a division of the multi-national Swedish firm, Alfa-Laval. There, under the tutelage of his supervisor, Mr. Ray, he acquired indispensible knowledge and practical experience, and quickly advanced to the role of project coordinator. After Skansen, Sreedhar took a bold step and migrated to Canada with the intent of advancing his career, but engineering positions were scarce. Sreedhar subsequently moved away from manufacturing and elected to attend graduate school to study computer science at Alcorn State University. Then, with a growing ambition to apply his new skills and education, Sreedhar began working in IT, and secured a position at a banking institution. From that experience, Sreedhar recognized that the technology marketplace was ripe for growth. It would soon become evident that Sreedhar was destined to leave his footprint on the burgeoning world of Information Technology.
When you construct a solid foundation and marry it with proven methods, processes and people, there are no limits to success! This is the truism to which Sreedhar Veeramachaneni subscribes–and it is his unwavering aim to perpetuate–as System Soft Technologies advances as an organization.
