The business-orientated social networking company LinkedIn has appointed sales veteran Ashutosh Gupta as its new country manager for India. He replaces Mahesh Narayanan, who was LinkedIn’s country manager for India from January 2019 to June 2019.
Gupta, who takes over the new role from September, will report to Olivier Legrand, LinkedIn’s Managing Director for the Asia Pacific region and will continue to lead the LMS Online Sales Organization for APAC and China.
“India is a strategic market for LinkedIn, and its developing economy and dynamic jobs market is ripe with opportunity for LinkedIn to add value for our members and customers,” said Gupta who will relocate to India from Singapore.
He brings over two decades of experience in IT & Software Services and has worked at firms such as Infosys, Cognizant and Google and joined LinkedIn’s Marketing Solutions (LMS) in 2013.
LinkedIn has over 630 million users worldwide and more than 57 million registered members in India.
