Hitasha Chandnani

Growing up in Malaysia, living in a home of Chilean and Indian background and moving to the UK for further education, I gained a 1st class honors degree in Management and IT at Lancaster University.

This sparked my curiosity in technology and created three passions that have shaped my career in IBM: Creating innovative solutions that solve complex business problems, creating environments of inclusions and building bridges between my company, its people, partners, and clients.

The solutions I have created solve the most challenging problems organisations face by bridging together IBM and its strategic partners. Utilising my skills in strategy and digital transformation, I lead the mobile propositions for our newly formed venture with Vodafone. This includes combining Vodafone’s next generation 5G network with IBM’s mobile technology to create innovative solutions that redefine user experience and business processes in the palm of users’ hands. Presenting alongside senior executives to clients as an equal, I have been embracing my own identity and adding value with my “cultural” perspectives. The skills I have gained help companies in strategic partnerships understand the significance of blending cultural values to work together and achieve the same goal.
