Sharat Reddy

General Manager, Marketing & North America Sales

LinkedIn Profile

I’ve always considered myself an adventurer, and curiosity has driven that pursuit. It’s taken me to new places, taught me new languages, helped me pursue new ventures, and created incredible opportunities. It’s not without risk, but I’ve always been comfortable with ambiguity in the interest of learning.

My educational pursuits highlight my commitment to curiosity and thought – I have a BA in Philosophy with a focus in Environmental and Biomedical Ethics, and an MBA in Sustainable Business. My degrees are set on a foundation of environmental and social justice.

I’ve spent time in various roles across non-profits, startups, and Fortune 500’s. I’ve started my own company, worked on the cutting edge of healthcare, and ran global programs at Microsoft. Those experiences give me a diverse background and an incredible advantage at Xinova, where our business is not focused on one industry or one service, but a diverse array of innovation. At Xinova, my curiosity is satisfied by the big problems we solve.
