Founder and CEO, Sprinklr
Ragy Thomas is a technology visionary, entrepreneur, and investor who has played an instrumental role in the evolution of two business-critical channels for the enterprise: social media and email. As founder and CEO of Sprinklr, he is empowering companies to reimagine their customer-facing operations – the front office – to manage consumer experiences across every touchpoint.
Prior to founding Sprinklr, Ragy was the president of Epsilon’s Interactive Services from 2006 to 2008, and the CTO of Bigfoot Interactive, an email marketing leader that Epsilon acquired in 2005. Ragy earned his M.B.A. in Finance and Information Systems from New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business and his Computer Science Engineering degree from Pondicherry University in India.
He serves on the board of directors at Kenscio, a digital marketing services company he co-founded in 2009, and Cloth, a mobile fashion application company.
This week, Sprinklr celebrates its 14th anniversary. What a journey it has been. We’ve come a long way from when I first started in my spare bedroom at home in New Jersey. Sprinklr now has 26 offices in 19 countries around the world.
