The DXLabs Team
AAFIA RAHEEM, TECHNICAL BUSINESS ANALYST
A self-confessed serial snacker and avid video gamer, Aafia is also the founder of a green tech start-up. She lists company culture as the reason why she joined DXLabs, and we’re lucky to have this budding IT star amongst us.
CHATURA HEENDENIYA, SENIOR SOLUTIONS ARCHITECT
With an extensive background as a software developer working with leading insurance companies, Chatura now joins DXLabs as a solutions architect. He once won a trip to the US for his whole family after winning an annual award for the best “one team” employee. When he’s not winning awards, he’s cooking up a storm in the kitchen – who knows, he might be our next MasterChef?
CONNOR HUGHES, CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER
As DXLabs CTO, Connor brings over 20 years of experience in technology leadership and enterprise software development within Australian and European start-ups, and large corporates. Passionate about solving business problems, Connor was excited by the disruptive nature of DXLabs digital transformation services. Connor’s other passion lies in mastering sports, from playing rugby for over 25 years, to representing Australia in cycling, to more recently paddling from Molokai to Oahu in the World Surf Ski Championships in Hawaii. This competitive spirit drives Connor to help organisations disrupt existing solutions to achieve growth and value.
DEBMITA GUPTA SAHA, TECHNICAL BUSINESS ANALYST
A technology enthusiast, Deb has spent the past 7 years working in IT across finance, real estate, telco and energy, supporting various regions across the globe. As an avid art lover she fills her spare time immersed in creative hobbies, which can also be seen in her creative and passionate approach to her work.
DIVIJ MEHRA, TECHNICAL BUSINESS ANALYST
Divij is a true life-experience collector – having travelled to 35 countries and worked in retail, accounting, web development and teaching. Hungry to learn, Divij signed up to join DXLabs because of the people. “I wanted to surround myself with the very best – especially being in a supportive workplace that would provide me with ample learning opportunities.”
EVA SURYAPRANATA, TECHNICAL BUSINESS ANALYST
Eva is passionate about digital transformation and delivering business solutions, so after spending 16 years in the CRM space working for the government, various financial institutions and telcos, joining DXLabs was a fresh change. A keen skier, you can find Eva chasing snow when any holiday comes her way.
FIONA VELLA, COMMERCIAL DIRECTOR
Prior to joining DXLabs, Fiona spent 14 years working in the life insurance industry across Australasia. She made the switch over to the technology sector after meeting with Luis and hearing about his vision to make a significant difference to businesses through approaching change pragmatically. Fiona counts motherhood as her biggest achievement to date, and with the way she juggles her job and family life, we can’t agree more.
IRFAN SHAIK, APPLICATION SUPPORT ENGINNER
Between playing badminton and piano, reading psychology journals and hosting intimate dinner parties, Irfan is the Application Support Engineer for Decisions in Australia. Having recently worked in media, Irfan brings a rare technical talent to the team including the ability to pass Masters of IT subjects with only two days of study and limited food intake! Here for all of your Decisions questions, Irfan looks forward to helping you whenever is needed.
LUIS NEJO, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER & FOUNDER
Luis is the founder of process and experience automation specialists, DXLabs. Luis has led technology innovation in the Banking, Insurance & Contact Centre industries for over 15 years and is recognised for his customer centricity, provocative thought leadership and an ability to demystify complex, multi-disciplinary business problems. When he’s not leading the charge at work, you can find him getting his Lego nerd on with his kids.
MARZIA HEMANI, TECHNICAL BUSINESS ANALYST
Marzia is truly passionate about converting problems into solutions – she has spent more than eight years working as a technical business analyst across a myriad of industries including telecommunications, health and education. Her work speaks volumes about what a go-getter she is, and we love having her positive energy (and green thumb skills) around us!
ZACHARY LEMURA, TECHNICAL BUSINESS ANALYST
Whether going down YouTube rabbit holes or listening to podcasts, Zac has a healthy obsession with learning, especially about topics and things he didn’t even know existed! This has helped him accelerate his career since starting as an intern with American Express. Joining DXLabs in October 2019 as a Technical Business Analyst, with experience in creating a number of functioning applications, across different platforms, we are excited to watch Zac build creative, functional and new solutions for DXLabs and our customers.
