IDP appoints Neeraja Krishnan to lead its Digital Campus
International Education specialists IDP have announced the appointment of Neeraja Krishnan as Director of its Digital Campus in Chennai, India.
With Neeraja’s appointment, IDP will have a team of women leading its tech operations in India, working alongside more than 400 digital and technology experts who are shaping the organisation’s digital growth.
Neeraja brings more than 27 years of experience in the IT industry and joins the four current team leaders: Amudha Kannan - Director of Digital Technology Services, Devi Muralidharan - Delivery Director, Nisha Murthe - Director of Client Care and Nanditha Nagaswamy - Director of People Experience.
When Neeraja joined IDP, she said she was drawn to the bold ambitions of the company, as well as its global and inclusive culture.
“Women have been leading and contributing to the development of the IT industry for many years now but are underrepresented in many industries. Our IT team is a fantastic example of how better representation in IT leadership can drive a more knowledgeable, passionate and experienced operation.
“I’m excited to lead a team of industry experts. Our combined knowledge of the latest technology innovation and understanding of our customers will help drive the company’s success, and support more students in achieving their dreams”, said Neeraja.
The Digital Campus is driving IDP’s next phase of digital transformation, which includes its student-centred app IDP Live and a ground-breaking new service that fast-tracks students through to receiving an offer.
Andrew Barkla, Chief Executive Officer at IDP, said that Neeraja’s experience and vision will take the Digital Campus to new strengths, as it expands IDP’s connected community and global platform.
“We are delighted to welcome Neeraja to our global network and senior leadership team. We are proud that 50 per cent of our Digital Campus technology specialists are women, and now with an all-women leadership team, this demonstrates our commitment to improving leadership opportunities for women, as well as creating sector-leading career pathways in IT.
“Under Neeraja’s direction, our Digital Campus will help fulfil our strategy of unlocking new opportunities for our customers and clients through leading technology solutions and trusted human support. IDP’s expert teams across the world will together drive the rebound and acceleration of our industry.”
