About The Speaker

Rukesh Patel

Rukesh is a transformation leader with global experience in managing complex and mission-critical platforms in Fintech, Payments, Lending, Travel, and FMCG. He has been a part of a technology team at American Express, Westpac Bank, Lloyds Banking Group, PriceWaterHouse, and Woolworths. In 2015, he moved to Mumbai and worked as CTO for Jio Platforms and Edelweiss Financial Services. He is currently leading the technology transformation for Financial Systems and Software. Rukesh started his career working on multi-threaded signal processing algorithms for image and speech recognition. He strongly believes technology should be beautiful and non-invasive - simple and easy to use, and the users should be able to get in and out to get things done fast using tools that are fit for purpose. Culture is more important than strategy in running an organisation and attaining agility in everything we do is critical as nothing is predictable in our current world. A self-transforming thinker who believes there is no bar to achieving anything in life. A Gemini who is never bored; always debating anything and everything with his twin self :-)! Lately, Rukesh is passionate about helping NGOs, teaching or helping Indian startup scale up.
