“Under his guidance during the last six months, Surebridge has confirmed its industry leadership by achieving profitability despite a challenging environment in IT services. The strategic initiatives that he is putting into action are expected to drive Surebridge growth over the next several years,” said Al Dobron, Providence Equity Partners and member of the Surebridge board of directors.

Most recently, Boni served as CEO for Prime Response, where he expanded and globalized the European applications software company.
“The outsourcing industry is a dynamic market with tremendous opportunity, particularly in the mid-market space,” Boni said. “Surebridge has steadfastly managed the growth of its business of providing quality solutions to middle market companies, which has been integral to its achieving profitability.”
Boni succeeds Surebridge founders Pradeep Khurana, former chairman, and Stephanie Khurana, former CEO, both of whom remain on the company’s board.
