Elevating Digital Department with New Hire at Ballards

Ballards LLP is pleased to announce the addition of Bal Siyan to its digital department as a Digital Consultant. With an impressive background spanning various sectors of the industry, Bal brings a wealth of experience and expertise to further enhance Ballards’ capabilities in delivering cutting-edge solutions to their clients.

Bal’s journey in the digital realm began with a placement at Prudential in London, where he quickly immersed himself in the world of work and discovered his passion for technology. This early fascination with IT propelled him forward, leading to a diverse career journey that encompassed roles in solution architecture, sales, consultancy, and more.

Over the years, Bal has held pivotal roles at prominent organisations such as a large housing organisation, TSG, Siemens, and Hutchinsons, amassing a wealth of experience and a reputation for his keen problem-solving abilities. A notable aspect of his career is his role as a trainer, demonstrating his commitment to sharing knowledge and fostering growth within the industry.

Bal Siyan’s enthusiasm for technology extends beyond the professional sphere. A devoted enthusiast of automobiles and Formula 1 racing, he’s been tinkering with cars since the tender age of 11. His affinity for challenges and innovation resonates perfectly with his vision for digital transformation.

When asked about his passion for digital transformation, Bal expressed, “The thing that excites me the most is finding the gaps in technology or systems and for me to sit down and find a more efficient solution. I enjoy the process of finding that solution and, more importantly, presenting those findings back. For me, that’s what Ballards encompasses all in one; it’s something new and exciting, taking customers on a journey.”

Looking ahead, Bal predicts a rapid shift towards cloud technologies. Drawing parallels with the evolution of physical servers, he believes that major players like Google and Microsoft will consolidate smaller applications into their ecosystems, ushering in a new era of efficiency and integration.

Sean Devlin, IT and Digital Transformation Partner at Ballards, stated, “Bal’s diverse background and innovative mindset align seamlessly with our ethos of driving digital transformation forward with our clients. We are excited to welcome him to the Ballards family and I’m confident that his expertise will contribute significantly to our ever-growing set of digital transformation services.”
