His leadership will also mark an era of enhanced transparency and collaboration to galvanize members, volunteers and stakeholders in support of PMI’s work -- ensuring that we are communicating the impact and value of project management around the world.”

Sunil brings more than three decades of valuable global leadership to PMI, with a solid track record of setting strategies, delivering large scale transformation agendas, and meeting growth and profit challenges for international organizations.

“Technology is transforming the way the world conducts business at lightning speed. I look forward to working with the team at PMI to deliver on a bold, new multi-year initiative designed to sharpen the organization’s strategic direction, enhance its technological capabilities to embrace shifting workplace trends, and deliver unparalleled value to our members, volunteers, chapters and project professionals,” Sunil said. “As a global business leader for large and complex companies around the world, I have seen firsthand the power that professional project management brings in making individuals and their organizations successful.”
