Looking back to 2001, he founded iTech US, an Inc. 500 award-winning software consulting and business process outsourcing firm, steering it to become the third fastest-growing technology company in the United States and fastest in New England. iTech US is projected to be a $100 million dollar company in 2016 with its 1,200-employees spread across its international headquarters in Burlington, Vermont and offices in Texas, New Jersey, Canada, and India.

Prior to venturing into IT, utilizing a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering earned at the University of Akron in Ohio, Kishore worked as a research and development engineer at Enerfex, a technology think tank, where he developed a unique, patented technology to capture greenhouse gases and reuse them as industrial refrigerants.
When Kishore isn’t cultivating his teams of passionate thought leaders within the IT scene, as a licensed private pilot he enjoys playing in the clouds, community service, and being active in Dallas based Health Wildcatters. Furthermore, he is a devoted family man who places great value in spending time with his wife and two children.
