Jacob, who has an unmatched ability to weave interesting anecdotes taping his expertise spanning 30 years in the profession, will be speaking at Techspectations 2023, Manorama Online’s flagship digital summit to be held in Kochi on February 17.
A perfect team player, Jacob has been able to bring together a core group of technocrats as co-founders under whom Experion has grown from a team of 10 working on a few select projects to a 1,500-strong organsation that has worked with over 500 clients across 36 different countries.
Experion’s product engineering wizards work out of three development centres in India – Thiruvananthapuram (Technopark), Kochi, and Bangalore, and six global offices across Europe, Australia, and North America.

He has built successful business lines around enterprise software products and has mouled early-stage software product companies, before wielding the reigns at Experion.
He has also held multiple leadership positions and led teams at Dimensions Cybertech and IBS Software Services.
He had a stint in the Education sector as well, having taught Corporate Strategy to MBA students at The University of Lincolnshire and Humberside, UK, at their Dubai campus.
