Since joining GlobalLogic in 2008, Shashank Samant has transformed the company from a team of bright software engineers working with start-ups, into a global digital engineering services leader, helping Fortune 1000 companies achieve their digital ambitions. In Shashank’s time as President and CEO of GlobalLogic, the company has experienced explosive growth in size, reach, and revenue — all while developing a strong reputation and a culture that fosters engaged employees who are passionate about innovation and client success. In July 2021, GlobalLogic was acquired by Hitachi Ltd. and continues independent operations as a Hitachi Group Company.

Prior to joining GlobalLogic, Shashank was President of Ness Technologies, where he founded and built their product engineering services business and grew it to a successful IPO on the NASDAQ exchange in 2004. Prior to Ness, Shashank was the leader of product engineering for Hewlett-Packard’s Verifone line of business, a global innovator and leader in Point of Sale (POS) and payment technologies. Before HP, Shashank was instrumental in establishing IBM’s first India-based software engineering lab, helping globalize IBM’s R&D and software engineering. Shashank started his career at Citicorp, where he was part of the core team that developed the FlexCube banking technology that transformed retail banking. In addition to his operating executive role at GlobalLogic, Shashank also serves as a member of the Board of Directors at Office Depot (NASDAQ: ODP), a $10B retail leader based in the US, Rackspace Technology, (NASDAQ: RXT), a leading end-to-end multicloud technology solutions company, and the Herjavec Group, a leader in cybersecurity Advisory Services, Architecture & Implementation services.
