For Tech Alpharetta’s first Driving Innovation podcast episode of 2022, guest host Felipe Smolka, now a partner with EY, and Chairman of the Board of Tech Alpharetta, interviews Romil Bahl, President and CEO at KORE, and a transformational tech leader.
Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Alpharetta, KORE, which went public in the fall of 2021, is a pioneer in delivering mission critical IoT services and solutions. The company helps eliminate the time-consuming need to identify, evaluate, contract, and manage multiple network connectivity providers, equipment manufacturers, and professional services organizations as companies build out IoT solutions.
Bahl joined KORE in 2017, bringing 30 years of experience delivering high growth among SaaS and IoT companies. He is passionate about merging strategy and innovation together. Bahl has risen to complex challenges where he has crafted growth strategies, tapped new emerging markets and energized global teams – with many successes coming within turnaround environments.
Prior to KORE, Bahl earned an MBA from The University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the Directorate of Marine Engineering and Technology in Kolkata, India. He was CEO of a data analytics-focused public company and held leadership roles at A.T. Kearney, Infosys and Deloitte. He also previously served as EVP and GM of Global Industries for CSC and as President and CEO of Lochbridge, a leading technology consulting and solutions provider in the IoT and digital enablement space.
Bahl’s leadership approach reflects his deep expertise in creating and leveraging teams that are driven to innovate and excel. This direction has been integral to KORE’s success, including the company going public in 2021.
