CANBERRA, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QuintessenceLabs, the leader in quantum cybersecurity, announced that its Founder and CEO was appointed to the prestigious Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council, a body of the world’s most influential leaders and decision makers who represent 22 countries and a wide cross section of industries. Dr. Sharma joins other global CEOs, who together, lead companies that employ more than 11 million people, and generate $3.86 trillion in annual revenue.
The Wall Street Journal CEO Council is an exclusive, invitation-only group of the world’s top business leaders who network and connect to discuss issues that shape the future of business, and drive the next era of industry, policy, and global economy.
Dr. Sharma’s track record of successfully driving growth in emergent technology sectors, as well as personal and professional achievements and honors, provide a backdrop for him to contribute to the dialog of this exclusive community. Dr. Sharma joins other WSJ CEO Council members such as Arvind Krishna, CEO, IBM; Bernard Mensah, President, International, Bank of America; Punit Renjen, CEO, Deloitte; and Gregory Hayes, Chairman and CEO, Raytheon, among others.
“I am grateful to the Wall Street Journal CEO Council for this prestigious invitation. I am excited and honored to join such an incredible group of executive thought leaders,” said Dr. Sharma. “QuintessenceLabs is at the forefront of developing powerful and innovative quantum cybersecurity solutions to safeguard leading enterprises and agencies. The opportunity to exchange ideas with and gain insightful perspectives from industry leaders in the WSJ CEO Council will be invaluable as we execute on our mission to keep the world’s most valuable data safe. Given the rapid march of digitalization, and significant progress in technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution such as Quantum, AI, IoT and 5/6G, it is imperative that we robustly protect sensitive information assets, today and into the future,” said Dr. Sharma.
There has never been a more critical time to connect with fellow leaders, hear how they’re handling the current volatility and share experiences. The WSJ CEO Council membership will allow Vikram to contribute his own unique perspective to drive and influence the biggest discussions and decisions shaping global business — including the impending cyber risk of quantum technologies.
Furthermore, Dr. Sharma has also recently been welcomed into the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Global Future Council (GFC), the world’s foremost community of experts dedicated to promoting innovative thinking to shape a more resilient, inclusive, and sustainable future.
