Kanjlia brings more than 25 years of experience developing and commercializing products for some of the most prominent financial institutions and fintechs in the country. Prior to Alkami, he served as the CPO at Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), where he unified functionality across major product lines, including payments, lending systems, and development platforms.

For five years, he led the DC Chapter of Asha for Education, a nonprofit dedicated to helping fund early childhood education among underprivileged communities in India. He currently serves as a national board member for BUILD, which uses entrepreneurship-based, experiential learning to ignite the potential of youth in under-resourced communities and equip them for high school, college and career success.
