CEO / Founder
Sharad started working in computing at the early age of 14, writing complex computer programs. By the time he entered the High School of Telecommunication Arts and Technology, where he continued excelling in the field of Computer Science, he was adept in a variety of programming languages. Sharad then attended City College of New York, School of Engineering where he completed his studies in Mathematics and Computer Science and Engineering.
By the time he received his graduate degree in Computer Science, Sharad understood intimately how a business can be adversely affected by system downtime, inefficiencies and lack of qualified IT staff.
His dream became to build a business and model that created a real “partnership” with mid-market companies; one where a bold, different IT Services Company could provide IT infrastructure efficiency, stability, security, dependability and technical expertise as a real part of another company’s IT team. That happens only when you truly understand their business.
Before embarking on that journey however, Sharad worked on Wall Street with M A Schapiro, PaineWebber/UBS, and eBond – engineering and administering several financial and trading systems. He also spearheaded efforts to successfully mitigate the Y2K bug from a key system used to run a trading platform. Upon receiving his graduate degree in Computer Science, he launched SRS with his particular vision and unique blend of discipline, integrity and transparency.
Transforming passion into reality, SRS has since expertly served numerous businesses with IT initiatives, migrations and digital transformation strategies even serving as a firm’s dedicated IT team if desired.
Sharad credits his success to his late father, a mathematician, and a statistician and computer scientist, for instilling in him a deep curiosity and love of discovery, mastery and perseverance at a very early age.
