RELATED TOPICS​

Exactpro, a software testing services provider for financial market infrastructures, has appointed Jagath De Silva as CEO of its new subsidiary in Sri Lanka.

In his new role with Exactpro, De Silva will spearhead the company’s growth in Sri Lanka with the aim of making use of the leading local talent and harnessing the potential of the new market.

De Silva brings over two decades of fintech and delivery experience to Exactpro, having previously held a number of senior executive and technological engineering roles throughout his 20-plus years at the Virtusa Corporation. He was a founding member of the Quality Assurance practice of Virtusa, and also held the position of Software Quality Engineering Head of Sri Lanka from 2014, where he led a team of 800+ Software Quality engineers until his most recent role as head of the Global Tech Factory, an extended engineering arm of their Global Technology Office.

De Silva sits on the advisory committees of both the Sri Lanka Association for Software Services Companies (SLASSCOM) Technology forum and Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology (SLIIT) Business School.

De Silva’s appointment follows the announcement of Exactpro’s expansion into Sri Lanka in July, enabling Exactpro to continue strengthening support for global clients, including major exchanges and firms in the UK and US. Exactpro will also bring new capabilities to the local market, including the ability for specialised testing and engineering quality into software systems. By engaging at the grassroots level with universities and youth programmes, Exactpro aims to acquire, build and nurture world-leading talent.

Iosif Itkin, CEO and co-founder of Exactpro, says: “We’re thrilled to welcome Jagath to the expanding global Exactpro team. Jagath will be able to utilise his impressive industry and leadership experience to spearhead Exactpro’s new delivery centre in Sri Lanka to the benefit of our international clients and the local business community.”

De Silva, CEO, says: “I look forward to leading Exactpro’s expansion into Sri Lanka and providing a great opportunity for over 100 local software testing specialists. As the financial sector undergoes further transformation and faces new challenges, assuring system quality has become a boardroom issue, and Exactpro is well placed to meet this challenge being the industry leader in testing services in the global financial market.”
