Salim Hemdani

Group VP, Experiences and Platforms

For 13 years I have been developing and deploying digital experiences. I’ve spent eight of these years with Razorfish. I love solving hard client problems on a ubiquitous medium — the Internet — because its ability to provide a level playing field to everyone around the world fascinates me. Even more fascinating is that I live and breathe this digital world, despite the fact that my first encounter with television was at age 11; my first computer was at 19.

I started with Razorfish as a developer. Ecommerce and community development are my fortes — building cutting edge experiences is my passion. My principal is simple — “Engineering enables experience.” In other words, “Let’s build an experience that is not constrained by technological limitations.” At Razorfish, most of my time has been spent on-site with clients, learning their processes and culture. Digital consulting requires a unique blend of expertise, adaptability and agility. I have learned a lot working with brands like Microsoft, AT&T, Nike, Dell, Best Buy, Costco, Fujitsu America, Nintendo, Safeco and Wells Fargo. I have also worked with several start-up companies.

I currently serve as group vice president of experiences and platforms. I oversee the creative, user experience, delivery and technology disciplines for Microsoft business and also act as executive sponsor for all digital experiences executed by my team of incredibly talented and passionate people.

I am an executive MBA graduate from the University of Washington in Seattle and I earned my engineering degree from VNIT Nagpur in India. I am proud member of Beta Gamma Sigma International Owner Society.
