About Nirmal

I am an experienced operating executive and Co-Founder of RockON. RockON provides individuals with personal branding tools to proactively develop, manage, and market themselves. I have devised the science behind RockON’s brand value calculations and ratings which are designed to add credibility to personal branding. My critical input is vital to the platform’s development. I am often the standard bearer in keeping my team focused on its mission. I draw on my innate technical know-how, training sensibilities, and leadership experience as inspiration for guiding my high-tech team of engineers on the application architecture, design and infrastructure.

During my 16 year career, in a relatively quick arc of success, I went on to entrepreneurial management and executive officer positions in IT in several notable companies in India—and one startup in the US. That startup was Tescra Inc., I serve as the Managing Director and Vice President of Global Delivery with Tescra which delivers professional services, consulting, IT staffing, and IT outsourcing in the implementation of EAI, and Business Process Management solutions. In 2008, Tescra was identified by Inc. magazine as one of the 500 fastest growing private companies worldwide. It also garnered the distinction of being one of the top 100 minority-owned businesses in the U.S. Tescra delivers services in the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Africa and India with multi-million dollar engagements.

I also have prior experience in the B2B e-commerce space and IT training in senior management positions.

New projects excite me and I live by the motto “A man must do what he can until his destiny is revealed to him”. Anything that is fresh and new, no matter how small, brings out my passion for solving problems and building solutions.

I have a B.S. in Chemistry, from A.M. Jain College in Chennai, India.
