Sanjeev KosarajuChief Executive Officer

Jaipal Reddy KadaariChief Revenue Officer

Paresh Masade Founder & Managing Director Paresh, an alumnus of NITIE, is a mechanical engineer by education and a coder by passion. Paresh opted out of the placement process at NITIE to start Coherendz. He built Coherendz from the ground up, led it to grow from strength to strength and continues to nurture its growth. He has developed an incredible knack of bringing out the best in everyone around him. Passionate about everything he does, he is an avid follower of technology and there isn't much that he doesn't know about web development. He drives the technology team and makes sure customer success is the focus of everything we build. He is a foodie and is lucky to have a wife who loves cooking for him. He enjoys music with great lyrics and once in a while he also tries his hand at poetry. You should try getting him to confess his age and this deep thinker will claim to be 23 years old forever.

Sanjeev Kosaraju Chief Executive Officer Our tall man, who is still a kid at heart, dropped out of IIIT-Hyderabad’s MS program to embark upon his entrepreneurial journey. Before joining Paresh in 2010, his experiences include his stints as Head – R&D Operations at Ken Comsys Pvt. Ltd. and Director – EdPro at Edserv Softsystems Ltd. Loved by the team and our clients alike, Sanjeev has been one of Coherendz's biggest pillars of strength. He brings the company's vision alive by taking care of its execution. He also leads product strategy and sales. He strives to add value to the company and the clients one step at a time. He dreams big and brings to the table his never quenching thirst to grow bigger by the day. Sachin is his GOD and he says, “One day I will meet him. And that day he will know me by my name.” He is an avid reader and an articulate writer. When he is not killing you with his silence, he is great to be around. Treat this big man with mirchi bajjis and he will be your pet! View Linkedin Profile

Yasaswy Peesapati Master Evangelist Yasaswy is a graduate from Vellore Institute of Technology and worked with Cognizant Technology Solutions before joining us. He is Sanjeev’s chaddi-buddy and both of them work together in taking Vaave around the world. He is the most detail oriented member of the team and an expert at problem solving. Being incredibly versatile and level-headed, he approaches every task with confidence and clarity. He loves working more with people and less on his computer. He is a hardcore Salesman at heart and practices his sales techniques on his poor wife. His beard is his style statement and ‘Rocking Baba’ his pet name. He enjoys indulging himself in a game of chess and digging into the dictionary to learn new words. If FC Barcelona is playing, be sure he is stuck to the screen. Guess where this dude takes his dog for a walk - the cremation ground! He says his dog likes the silence of the place. Creepy right? We know! View Linkedin Profile

Jaipal Reddy Kadaari Chief Revenue Officer Jaipal, the 'numbers man of Coherendz', has an MBA degree to his credit. He manages our numbers and ensures that they all add up. He keeps all accounts in order and the structure of the business tight and together. He is keenly interested in scalability of organizations and cannot resist a game of volleyball. He was Paresh’s classmate at college. He plays an active role in keeping the alumni association of his school active and cannot spend more than a fortnight without meeting his friends from school. His biggest dream in life is to complete a world tour before he is 45 years old! We can't wait to get him married. Help us find a girl, please? View Linkedin Profile

Sanoop Sreedharan Master Evangelist Sanoop worked with Amazon and Facebook before joining us. He takes Vaave around the world along with Sanjeev and Yasaswy. His amazing attention to detail helps him become a pro even at things he is doing for the first time. His discipline and style give away his fauji genes. He loves running, biking and travelling with his wife. He loves animals a little more than he wants to and is sweet enough to push himself an extra mile to help them - that’s how he saved a cat from near death and feeds a dog at the railway station everyday!

Srinivas Emani Master Impact Catalyst Srinivas, a former Teach for India Fellow, is our Impact Catalyst. He makes sure we deliver on our promises and inspires institutions to leverage the potential of their alumni networks. Sachin and Federer are his Gods. An explorer at heart, he loves reading and travelling. Every now and then, he tries discipling his diet but his sweet tooth always seems to get the better of him!

Nagarjuna Bhavanam Impact Catalyst Nagarjuna, our ‘Chief’, is a kid at heart and hands down the sweetest person in our team. He is our developers’ nightmare - our tester. “Nagarjuna is not letting us go. He is making us overwork”, is something we hear every other day, but you will never see him frown or raise his voice. He is extremely diligent with his work and sees the bright side in everyone. He is the first person to be at office every single day, a record we have never been able to break. Bread Halwa and Naga Chaitanya are his favourites!

Avinash Chapprapu Explorer Avinash leads the Data Research team which is the lifeline of our Sales. He is helpful and forgetful at the same time. He pushes himself to get better with each day. He dreams of joining the defence services and owning a Royal Enfield. He loves food and doesn’t call it a party without a bottle of beer. TT is his new found hobby and cricket the old one. He also has a permanent place in his galli cricket team - as the 12th player :P

Vamshi Kodali Impact Catalyst Vamshi takes care of Delivery and Support and he is the guy who ensures we deliver our networks on time. From setting up new sites, processing emergency requests from our clients, computer repairs, software upgrades to sudden photoshop work - he is our go-to guy. He is a perfectionist and enjoys learning new things. He prefers the listening and watching modes of learning, books are not his cup of tea. He is the only one at office who can get the better of his sweet tooth :P

Jeevan Daniel Evangelist Jeevan, an alumnus of IIT(ISM) Dhanbad, is the most recent addition to our Sales team. He works with Yasaswy and Sanoop in taking Vaave across the country. This ‘boxer’ has many awards to his credit and a contrastingly soft demeanor. He enjoys backpacking to new places alone. A true foodie at heart, he loves cooking and adores Gordon Ramsay. He dreams of building a social organization that supports the poor and the old.

Pratibha Gorrepati Explorer Pratibha works on the Data Research team. She makes work easier for our sales team by sourcing all the information they need and hands it over to them on a silver platter. This silent being misses home terribly but the want to grow into a strong, independent woman overpowers her longing to go back home. She loves listening to music and playing badminton. Biryani and Jr. NTR are her favourites!

Gavi G H Explorer Gavi works along with Pratibha on the Data Research team. He loves playing cricket and watching movies. His favourites include the likes of Blood Diamond, Black Hawk Down & Fast and Furious. You will hardly see him talking and even when he does he speaks in frequencies below the human hearing range. Take him on a Chicken Biryani date and he will be your best friend.
