Founder & CEO

Piyush is responsible for providing strategic direction and enabling the Kyra team to execute his long-term vision. Understanding that Kyra's people are its greatest asset, his goal is to create an employee-driven, client-centric culture of innovation, trust, and integrity.

Before founding Kyra, Piyush held various technical and executive positions with a fast-growing technology company that grew from 50 employees to over 10,000 in ten years. This experience, along with his family’s five-generation tradition of entrepreneurship, has given him the necessary skills to lead Kyra from a start-up to a business with long-term sustainable growth.

He also served as a Research Affiliate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. A believer in lifelong education, he began his MBA studies at the University of Michigan. Due to a company transfer and a great opportunity in the Sunshine State, he finished his business education at the "Michigan of the East."  He is a graduate of Harvard Business School’s Owner/President Management Program.

Piyush believes strongly in getting involved in the community where he lives, works and raises his family. He lives in Lakeland, FL with his wife, Rupal, and their two children, Ryan and Kyna.
