Orion Innovation appoints former Curaleaf CFO as its new finance leader

Edison-based Orion Innovation said Ranjan Kalia has joined the company as chief financial officer, effective Monday. Kalia succeeds Jeffrey Robinson, who will continue to play a key role supporting Orion’s finance organization.

With more than 25 years of technology and financial leadership, Kalia joins the company from Curaleaf Holdings, where he served as chief financial officer. Prior to Curaleaf, Kalia was executive vice president and chief financial officer of Virtusa Corp., a global provider of digital strategy, digital engineering and IT services and solutions, where he led the company’s finance team and advised the CEO and board of directors on development of business strategies, capitalization strategies and mergers & acquisitions. Kalia played a key role in Virtusa’s growth from $100 million to more than $1.2 billion in revenue before the company’s sale to a private equity firm for a significant premium.

“We are pleased to welcome Ranjan to Orion and our executive leadership team. Ranjan brings deep technology industry expertise and over two decades of experience leading financial operations at high-growth multinational firms with a track record of delivering strong results and stakeholder value,” Raj Patil, CEO and president of Orion, said.
