“Aarish brings many strengths to AIS and I’m excited to have him join our team to scale up our ability to serve new clients. AIS is committed to being a trusted partner to our clients as they navigate the most complex challenges associated with enterprise cloud adoption, governance, modernization, and operations,” said Larry Katzman, President and Chief Executive Officer for AIS. “Aarish has a demonstrated history of growing consulting businesses with a focus on service delivery excellence.”

Before joining AIS, Gokaldas served as the Market Lead for Parsons Corporation’s Space and Geospatial Solutions Market, managing a market of 600 people whose support cut across the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community clients. Gokaldas joined Parsons via its acquisition of OGSystems in January 2019. As CGO, he drove OGS to a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) in excess of 20% over its final five years prior to acquisition. Gokaldas holds a BS in Science, Technology and International Affairs from Georgetown University, and an MA in International Security from Georgetown University’s Security Studies Program.

“I am thrilled to join AIS and lead their growth strategy,” said Gokaldas. “As enterprise cloud consumption contracts make their way through the respective procurement and legal systems, AIS is already engaged with clients – via our DoD services contracts – to deliver successful cloud transformations. This is an organization with a stellar set of technical capabilities and rock stars from top to bottom, all of whom are laser-focused on customer delivery. I look forward to helping them extend that delivery – including a strong track record of app modernization and data intelligence across the three Microsoft cloud platforms.”
