Sharmila Ray

Senior Vice President, Product and Strategy

"I love to inspire teams to achieve their individual and collective best: for themselves, for the company, and ultimately for the end-user."

I started my career in the technology space and have always been fascinated by the dynamic nature of the industry. After spending more than a decade studying and serving carriers and distributors in the insurance industry, I am convinced there is still significant untapped potential for technology to pioneer this industry’s future. I hope to build on my passion for technology, understanding of insurance industry trends and stakeholder needs, to create alignment between what drives the best outcomes for our customers’ businesses and the solutions that Vertafore provides.
