As co-founder of TA Digital in 2000, Rohmetra shepherded TA Digital to tremendous heights as one of the world’s premier digital transformation agencies, serving hundreds of clients around the globe.

“I am honored and grateful for the privilege of leading TA Digital for over two decades,” said Rohmetra. “As one of the founding members, I had an incredible journey with an opportunity to scale the organization from a team of two to see it become one of the leading global digital transformation agencies.

“After having many accomplishments over the years, I have decided to retire and pass on the baton to Dr. Alkhafaji to take the company forward to greater heights with the same passion and enthusiasm. I am confident that under the leadership of Dr. Alkhafaji, TA Digital will continue to excel and deliver incredible value to its clients.”

Dr. Alkhafaji joined TA Digital in 2017 and helped oversee the expansion of TA Digital to its current state. He will work with TA Digital’s global leaders to ensure a smooth transition and achieve aggressive growth plans during the company’s next phase.

“It has been an honor and privilege to work alongside Rajiv for seven years; what an amazing journey it has been,” said Dr. Alkhafaji. “I am thankful for Rajiv’s dedication and impact on TA Digital, but above all, I am thankful for his friendship. I hope to be an effective steward to this great organization and continue this heritage of excellence for our people, our clients, and our partners.”

TA Digital will continue to operate as an integral part of the Credera Network of agencies and help drive digital transformation to clients everywhere.

“I want to congratulate Rajiv on founding and building an amazing business that has made a positive impact on so many people and clients,” said Justin Bell, Global CEO of Credera.
