Gagan Saksena will scale Wizeline’s world-class engineering and enterprise Artificial Intelligence research teams
I’m happy to share news that Gagan Saksena has joined Wizeline as Senior Vice President of Technology and Engineering.
I’ve known Gagan for 15 years and he is, without a doubt, one of the best technology and strategic business leaders in Silicon Valley. He’s served as an adviser to Wizeline since the early days. In his new role, Gagan will be focused on leading engineering initiatives to support scale, quality and security for our growing list of enterprise customers.
If you’ve had the occasion to meet Gagan, you’ll know that he’s one of the most modest people in technology — you’d never guess that he’s worked on some truly foundational products in Silicon Valley.
Gagan started his career in Silicon Valley as a principal software engineer at Netscape, where he worked on one of the world’s first consumer Web browsers. In 2003, he accepted an engineering management position at Google, which is where he and I first met. While at Google, Gagan played a critical role in scaling the company’s content monetization platform, AdSense.
Later in his career, Gagan was also founder and CEO of Ideascopic, a real-time analytics company serving brick-and-mortar stores. Following Ideascopic, he served in executive positions in numerous startups to help them grow and scale.
Please join me in welcoming Gagan!
