As Equifax’s product architect leader for Mortgage, Vansantha Kandikuppa works very closely with Equifax’s business and development teams to translate product/business requirements into valuable technology solutions. She navigates a myriad of stakeholders while effectively managing and mentoring both on- and off-shore resources. During the pandemic, Equifax was laser-focused on massive technological transformation, migrating all of their technology solutions and products to the cloud; Kandikuppa was at the helm leading these efforts.
In addition to this gargantuan effort, she helped them completely rewrite and replace their customer-facing product portal and enhance several mortgage products, all over the course of 12 months. In her day-to-day role, Kandikuppa manages several teams across three different business units, ensuring they are all set up for success and have her full attention whenever they need it. She embraces the philosophy that failures are stepping stones to excellence.
