Washington, D.C. — Dexis announced today that Sudhakar Kesavan is joining the Board of Directors.

Mr. Kesavan served as Chairman and CEO of professional services firm ICF for over 20 years. During his tenure, Kesavan guided ICF through an extended period of expansion that included multiple acquisitions and growth in annual revenues of over $1.5 billion.

Kesavan was named a Tech Titan by Washingtonian Magazine and was inducted into the Washington Business Hall of Fame. Kesavan also led the effort for ICF to become the first professional services firm in the world to achieve carbon neutral status.

“Sudhakar’s background is so relevant to a socially-focused professional services firm such as Dexis,” said Mihir Desai, founder and CEO of Dexis. “His approach of doing well and doing good aligns clearly with ours. He loves to scale up high potential organizations, and what better than a firm active in 80 countries that is seeking to expand its impact?”

“I am impressed by Mihir’s success in founding and building a mission-oriented business,” said Sudhakar. “His ambition in continuing to grow the services offered by Dexis to deal with complex social challenges worldwide is admirable and entirely possible.” He added, “This is a group of people eager to grow a sustainable and exciting organization. I am pleased to join the Board and help take the firm to the next level.”
