Ranjith loves to build great products with long-lasting appeal. Let’s take, for example, Hightail. Ten years ago, he helped create a simple way to send large files that grew into a service used by 45 million people and 150,000 companies worldwide. Now, Ranjith has returned to the company he co-founded, to lead it into the future.
Most recently, he was CEO of consumer engagement platform PunchTab, another business he founded and built. He remains on the board of PunchTab.
Aside from starting Hightail and PunchTab, Ranjith has held marketing positions at Verisity Design and built sales engineering teams for an algorithms-to-silicon company, Celoxica. He was also a software systems engineer at open-source software distributor, Red Hat.
Ranjith has a bachelor of engineering in computer engineering from McGill University, is a charter member of the C100 (an organization supporting Canadian entrepreneurs) and is an active member of entrepreneur network TiE Silicon Valley.
