BlueCloud Appoints Former AWS Global Corporate Strategy Lead, Akin Uslu, as Chief Delivery Officer
Veteran IT account executive will deliver technology solutions in new markets and ensure that BlueCloud’s diverse range of services are performed to the highest standards
BlueCloud, a digital transformation company and global leader in data-driven solutions, today announced the addition of Akin Uslu as the company’s first Chief Delivery Officer. Uslu will lead BlueCloud’s global delivery across practices and also serve as a part of the executive leadership team, working to strengthen the company’s core values of innovation, customer service, and employee engagement.
In his new role, Uslu will work closely with BlueCloud’s delivery teams and portfolio customers to understand their goals and achieve business outcomes that increase shareholder value. Uslu will also collaborate with channel partners to evaluate new market opportunities for current solution offerings, establish program strategies that align with BlueCloud’s growth goals, and promote the company’s borderless delivery model, which provides clients access to top global IT talent.
“We are thrilled to welcome Akin to the BlueCloud team during an exciting next phase of our growth journey,” commented Kerem Koca, CEO and Co-founder of BlueCloud. “Akin’s experience working with household enterprise accounts across a range of industries will help streamline our delivery strategy as we continue to expand our services, verticals, and client portfolio globally.”
Uslu has over 20 years of IT consulting experience executing client and delivery management for major software companies, chip manufacturers, and large retail enterprises. Before joining BlueCloud, he was the Global Corporate Strategy Lead at Amazon Web Services, playing a critical role in developing growth strategies to expand the company’s presence in new markets through partnerships with global system integrators. Uslu worked with AWS executives, service teams, and GSIs to evaluate new market opportunities while assessing competitive dynamics and engagement strategies that leverage the strengths of AWS and its partners. He was previously a client executive for Slalom and Avanade, where he was instrumental in managing its Microsoft account.
“I’m excited to join a company like BlueCloud that operates ahead of the curve, poised for major growth with its strong technical talent and senior leadership,” said Akin Uslu. The firm is also enthusiastic about breaking the mold in terms of how consultancy services are delivered. “The technologies we deliver are constantly changing, so there’s no reason the methods we deliver should remain the same. I look forward to innovating with BlueCloud to create a new standard as the industry shifts towards these new work models.”
