Virtusa CEO named 'Business Leader of the Year'

The Worcester Business Journal (WBJ) has named Virtusa Corporation CEO Kris Canekeratne as one of its Business Leaders of the Year (in the large business category).

"I am delighted to have been named WBJ's Business Leader of the Year. This recognition is a direct reflection of the dedication and hardwork of our global team members and their commitment to our clients," said Chairman and CEO at Virtusa, Kris Canekeratne.

"Central Massachusetts has been home to Virtusa since our inception and has provided us with excellent infrastructure and easy access to talent, all key enablers of our growth platform."

The Worcester Business Journal recognised Canekeratne for his role in driving continued success at Virtusa and for helping transform the IT industry.

"Over the past eight years, Virtusa experienced significant growth across industries such as banking and financial services, insurance and healthcare under Canekeratne's leadership," a spokesman for the company said.

The Worcester Business Journal stated, "As customers shift toward more online and mobile services, Virtusa could be on the brink of another boom."

"The Virtusa story is very compelling as a company that has stayed ahead of the curve of change in information technology," said editor of the journal, Rick Saia. "That takes great foresight, and it's something Kris Canekeratne has shown since he founded the company. He seems to have that combination of engineering and business acumen that is elusive in many people."

"As the IT industry transforms to capitalise on new opportunities, Virtusa continues to lead in mobile, social and other emerging technologies. Virtusa enables its customers to build and deploy new solutions that drive business transformation," he said.

The journal also recognised Canekeratne for spearheading Virtusa's award-winning sustainability efforts and community involvement.
