Venkat Thumula Founder and CEO

As founder and CEO of Genzeon, Venkat Thumula provides the vision and leadership to help realize our highest potential: for our employees, our company, and most importantly, our customers. He understands that creating maximum long-term value for our customers requires a combination of technical expertise, innovation, and a customer-centric approach founded on a solid understanding of their business domains. He has used this approach to build exceptional teams with deep technical and functional expertise in healthcare and retail management and make Genzeon a trusted business partner providing IT and digital transformation solutions.

Before Genzeon, Venkat spent a decade at Allscripts, a Fortune 500 healthcare IT provider. He led the design and development of several significant products and was instrumental in their adoption and implementation at some of the leading hospitals in the U.S.. Beyond the global team leadership and technical experience he gained; he developed invaluable understanding and insights into the end-user perspectives in the industry. He began his career shadowing doctors and nurses in the hallways of hospitals, where he learned their needs and functions firsthand. He came away with a conviction that this knowledge was the other essential part of any genuinely transformative technology solution.

Venkat earned an MBA, Leadership in Healthcare from Yale University, a Master of Science in Computer Science from the University of South Alabama, and a Certificate in Business Essentials/Entrepreneurship from the Wharton Business School of the University of Pennsylvania. He enjoys spending time with family, giving back by mentoring young people, playing Racquetball, and of course, following the Philadelphia Eagles and the 76ers.
