Dexis has appointed Sudhakar Kesavan, former chairman and CEO of ICF and two time Wash100 Award recipient, to the company’s Board of Directors, Dexis reported on Monday. Kesavan served with ICF for more than two decades.

“Sudhakar’s background is so relevant to a socially-focused professional services firm such as Dexis,” said Mihir Desai, founder and CEO of Dexis. “His approach of doing well and doing good aligns clearly with ours. He loves to scale up high potential organizations, and what better than a firm active in 80 countries that is seeking to expand its impact?”

With ICF, Kesavan led the company’s extended period of expansion, including spearheading multiple acquisitions and growth in annual revenues of more than $1.5 billion. Kesavan also led the effort for ICF to become the first professional services firm to achieve carbon neutral status.

Previously, Kesavan served as a member of the Rainforest Alliance, and as chairman with the Northern Virginia Technology Council. Kesavan currently serves as chairman of ABM Industries’ Board of Directors, as well as a member of the Board of Trustees with Inova Health Systems. He is also a member of the External Advisory Board with MIT Institute for Data, Systems and Society.

“I am impressed by Mihir’s success in founding and building a mission-oriented business,” said Kesavan. “His ambition in continuing to grow the services offered by Dexis to deal with complex social challenges worldwide is admirable and entirely possible. This is a group of people eager to grow a sustainable and exciting organization. I am pleased to join the Board and help take the firm to the next level.”
