Appointment of Ashok Reddy as CEO of KX
FD Technologies announces the appointment of Ashok Reddy as Chief Executive Officer of KX, reporting directly to Group CEO Seamus Keating.
With an established track record of building and growing global technology businesses, Reddy joins KX at an optimal moment, with growth in annual recurring revenue accelerating and the signing of a landmark strategic partnership agreement with Microsoft earlier this year positioning KX for further growth.
“The market opportunity for KX is considerable,” said Reddy. “Real-time analytics is one of the most exciting spaces in technology today, and the opportunity for KX is evidenced by the growing number of new customer agreements in industries outside our core financial services base. I’m looking forward to leading the business, using my experience in developing and implementing strategies that deliver rapid growth to create value for stakeholders.”
Reddy has more than 20 years of experience leading teams and driving revenue for Fortune 500 companies. He spent ten years at IBM where he led the end-to-end delivery of enterprise products and platforms for a diverse portfolio of global customers. During his tenure, he more than doubled revenue and created a DevOps category that exceeded $350m in new revenue.

At CA Technologies, Reddy delivered growth in revenue and profitability, focused on the world’s largest financial services customers and cloud-based DevOps and AIOps product lines. A similar role at semiconductor firm Broadcom saw Reddy establish the company’s first enterprise software division and the formulation and implementation of a new business model that drove growth and more than tripled net margins in less than a year. Most recently, Ashok was the CEO of Digital.AI, driving rapid revenue growth and establishing it as the leader in AI-driven DevOps value stream management.
Commenting on the appointment, FD Technologies CEO Seamus Keating said: “We’re delighted to have Ashok join as CEO of KX. His track record of success in enterprise software, driving product and commercial strategies is a perfect fit as we look to accelerate our growth following a transformational year for the business.”
