“Sury’s leadership will help chart and guide the contours of the strategic partnership. Sury understands the changing dynamic of tech, startups, and STEM education in fostering stronger partnerships between Washington and New Delhi,” said Mukesh Aghi, president and CEO of USISPF.

“I am confident that, with his inputs and expertise, we will explore newer avenues and deeper areas of collaboration between the United States and India,” he said.

An industry veteran of 40 years, Kant leads various important initiatives between the US and India in his role at Tata Sons Private Limited. He advises many companies across the Tata group on their business strategies in the US, helping them further expand and chart new horizons.
