SINGAPORE & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Antuit, a global Big Data solutions company, today announced that Kumar Mahadeva, founder and former Chairman and CEO of Cognizant Technology Solutions, has joined the company’s Board of Directors. Mahadeva, who grew Cognizant into one of the world’s most successful technology services companies, brings strategic guidance and vision to Antuit as the company continues to grow its data analytics solutions business.
“Kumar Mahadeva has a phenomenal track record building global companies and propelling exceptional growth,” said Antuit CEO Arijit Sengupta. “We are pleased to welcome Kumar to the Antuit team and look forward to benefiting from the valuable perspective he will provide to our executive team.”
Mahadeva was the driving force behind the ascent of Cognizant which is now a Fortune 500 company with a $40 billion market capitalization. He has since founded Kubera Partners, a publicly traded equity fund investing in global companies seeking expansion into Western and Asian markets. Prior to establishing Cognizant, Mahadeva served as Chairman of Dun & Bradstreet India and China, where he led business development in the region. He has also held strategic senior positions at AT&T, McKinsey and Company and the British Broadcasting Corporation in London.

In January of 2015, Antuit secured an investment of up to $56 million led by Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), a leading global investment bank, and Zodius Capital (“Zodius’), an original founding investor, to support further global expansion through organic growth and acquisitions.
Mahadeva has a Masters degree in Electrical Engineering with first class honors from Cambridge University in England and holds an MBA with distinction from the Harvard Business School. He has worked in Europe, Asia and the US and currently resides in Greenwich, CT.
