April 11, 2022

How this Aerospace Engineer ended up becoming Chief Technology Officer at Walmart It’s been a real pleasure to follow Suresh’s meteoric rise through the executive ranks of Microsoft, Google and Walmart over the past 15 years.

As someone who was raised to hold education in high regard, learning—whether formal or self-directed—has guided Suresh’s career from interning at IBM Research to becoming Global CTO and CDO at Walmart today. Just as impressive as his career path are the principles and values that guide his decision-making at every turn.

On this latest podcast episode, Guru and Suresh discuss many interesting topics, from why life doesn’t always work out as planned to how to balance risks when running product experiments—but you won’t want to miss Suresh’s “3 innings of retail” and why he’s well-positioned to disrupt the industry as we know it.
