A classically trained singer, sustainability enthusiast and explorer of uncharted locations on the world map, Binu Jacob – Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer at Experion Technologies – makes wearing many hats look effortless.
Binu is a visionary, with a proven track record for driving growth. He has over 30 years of professional experience, and under his skilled and watchful eye, bringing together a core group of technocrats as co-founders, Experion has grown from a team of 10 working on a few select projects to a 1,500+ member team that has worked with over 500+ clients across 36 different countries.
There’s never a dull moment around Binu, whose ability to weave interesting anecdotes is only rivalled by his passion to illustrate how Experion is making real-life differences to companies’ world over.
Binu’s professional journey began as an Indian Air Force officer maintaining surface-to-air missiles and radars at multiple strategic locations. He has built successful business lines around enterprise software products, as well as grown early-stage software product companies, before wielding the reigns at Experion. He has also held multiple leadership positions and led teams at Dimensions Cybertech and IBS Software Services. He has dabbled in the Education sector as well, having taught Corporate Strategy to MBA students at The University of Lincolnshire and Humberside, UK at their Dubai campus. Binu has a Master’s degree in Management and Systems from IIT Delhi, and an Engineering degree in Applied Electronics and Instrumentation from the College of Engineering, Trivandrum. He is also a former Secretary and Board Member of the Group of Technology Companies (GTech) - the industry body of Information Technology (IT) and Business Process Management (BPM) organizations in Kerala.
Binu’s visionary outlook to life extends well beyond the confines of Experion’s success – having grown up in a village where only farm-fresh vegetables from the backyard wvere served on the table, he is an advocate for sustainable living. He’s also an artist, skilled in pencil sketching, and a cross country road-trip maniac who has pursued nature’s finest views all over the world – from Africa to New Zealand and most countries in between.
Apart from his responsibilities at Experion, the artist in him is currently crafting his own personal masterpiece – an ecovillage for minimalistic living that brings together his vision for the environment, sustainability, community living and agriculture bringing together like-minded friends.
