Hi, I’m Rizwan Khan.
I Help Businesses become Intelligent by Leveraging Modern Technologies.
After graduating in Computer Science and Engineering, I started my journey into technology as a software engineer. I progressed into more senior roles as a technical architect and later as head of engineering. I spent the first half of my career in Silicon Valley and then with big consulting firms Accenture and CTS. From CTO advisory, I transaction into the CTO role and worked for many prominent organizations in the last ten years. I earned my MBA in Technology Management and Executives Leadership from Kellogg Northwestern to solidify my business and management skills. In my CTO and technology leadership advisory roles I have been providing technology due diligence, building teams, defining and executing strategies, and delivering technology platforms in highly visible industries, including start-ups, enterprises, and highly reputable industry associations.
Why this Blog?
I am a big believer in sharing and giving back to the community. I started this blog to share my experiences and knowledge from the field in small tips. These tips are meant to provide direction/guidance to business leaders, especially non-tech CEOs, as they explore, build, and manage technologies for their respective businesses.
I am a husband, father, mentor, coach, and board member of many organizations, including healthcare, education, logistics, manufacturing, retail, and technology. I am part of many start-up incubators where I provide advice and guidance to entrepreneurs. Outside work, I enjoy traveling, reading, cycling, and volunteering.
