Piyush Mehta, Board Member

CEO at Data Dynamics

Piyush has over 25 years of entrepreneurial experience, with the past 20 focused in software and technology services. Currently Piyush serves as CEO and a Board Member of Data Dynamics, Inc., a company he founded in 2012. Piyush is committed to building software solutions that drive value for his customers. He believes that a customer-centric focus is a must, and thus builds an internal team culture with a “customer-first” mindset.

Piyush is focused on driving balance sheet value for his shareholders, while ensuring that the company is efficient with its capital. This has allowed him to build organizations with “boot-strap” funding, relying on organic sales to help drive growth rather than a constant dependence on external funding.

Often called the “Dean of Data,” Piyush has established alliances and partnerships with key industry leaders within the data management field. His extensive global experience includes areas such as business strategy, treasury and finance, investor relations, acquisitions and divestitures, and operations.
