The College of Engineering Guindy Alumni Association of North America (CEGAANA) named Sundar Vaidyanathan its 2020 Chairman of the Board. Vaidyanathan is the CEO and Co-Founder of Karsun Solutions, an enterprise modernization firm specializing in innovative software development, cloud solutions and advanced analytics. It serves customers at agencies including the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Aviation Administration and General Services Administration.
CEGAANA’s aim is to unite the CEG Alumni as a community. The association strives to make networking, reaching out, or even just catching up with fellow CEGians as easy as possible. CEGAANA also exists to support CEG alumni’s educational and career management goals.
Vaidyanathan is a graduate of the College of Engineering Guindy (CEG). As the CEGAANA Chair, he is committed to making the organization a self-sustaining entity. His ultimate goal is strengthening collaboration between students, the college and the alumni network. To this end, he envisions maturing the association’s organizational processes, operational infrastructure and leadership succession plans so it can continue to evolve.
He has also taken the lead in refining best practices in other IT industry organizations. As a board member of the non-profit organization the American Council of Technology – Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC), he transformed the association to meet metrics-based outcomes. In addition to previously serving as Vice Chair at Large on its Industry Advisory Council’s Executive Committee, he also served as both a Vice Chair and Chair of its Partners professional development program and expanded leadership within ACT-IAC’s Small Business Alliance. In addition to his work with ACT-IAC, he held various roles in other organizations including AFFIRM, AFCEA, NVTC and PSC.
Following Vaidyanathan’s lead, several Karsun executives hold leadership positions or participate in mentoring/professional development programs through industry associations. The in-house Innovation Center hosts monthly knowledge-sharing events. Here every team member has the opportunity to act as a subject matter expert. The Innovation Center also sponsored senior capstone projects at nearby George Mason University. Flowing down, employee-led teams give back to their local communities through neighborhood clean-up, donation drives and running clubs.
