Sridhar Ramaswamy is an Indian-American computer scientist and executive. He has been the Chief Executive Officer of Snowflake Inc., a cloud-based data-warehousing company, since February 2024. He was the co-founder and CEO of the startup company Neeva, an ad-free, privacy-focused search engine until it was acquired by Snowflake. He previously led Google’s $115 billion advertising division.


He attended IIT Madras and received a bachelor’s degree in computer science. He moved to the United States in 1989 and received a master’s degree and PhD in computer science from Brown University.


Data cloud company Snowflake has appointed IIT Madras alumnus Sridhar Ramaswamy as its CEO and member of the board of directors with immediate effect. He succeeds Frank Slootman who retired as CEO. However, Slootman will continue to serve as chairman of the board.

Ramaswamy previously held the position of SVP of AI at Snowflake. Ramaswamy has been leading Snowflake’s AI strategy since joining Snowflake last year in connection with the company’s acquisition of search engine Neeva.

He led the launch of Snowflake Cortex, Snowflake’s fully managed service that makes AI simple and secure for all users to quickly drive business value. Before joining Snowflake, Ramaswamy co-founded Neeva in 2019.

“As the leading cloud data platform, Snowflake is at the center of the AI ​​revolution,” Slootman said. “There is no better person than Sridhar to lead Snowflake in this next phase of growth and drive further opportunities in AI and machine learning. He is a visionary technologist with a proven track record of running and growing successful businesses”.
