LinkedIn gets new India head in just 6 months


Microsoft-owned professional networking platform LinkedIn on Monday named Ashutosh Gupta as Country Manager for India, replacing Mahesh Narayanan who was appointed to the post barely six months ago.

Gupta's appointment will be effective from September 2, 2019, the company said, adding that Narayanan's tenure ended in June this year. 

Gupta brings with him two decades of experience in the Internet and IT & Software Services industries across firms such as Google, Cognizant and Infosys. 

He joined LinkedIn in 2013 to lead LinkedIn's Marketing Solutions (LMS) in India, where he scaled the enterprise business. 

In 2016, he moved to Singapore to build LMS' Online Sales Organisation (OSO) for Asia Pacific and China. 

"India is a strategic market for LinkedIn, and its developing economy and dynamic jobs market is ripe with opportunity to add value to our members and customers," Gupta said on his appointment.

"I also look forward to forging deeper government relationships to inform policy-making with actionable data on jobs and skills, and make LinkedIn an integral part of the national agenda," he added.

Gupta will report to Olivier Legrand, LinkedIn's Managing Director for the Asia Pacific region and will join the company's APAC senior management team. 

He will relocate to India from Singapore to assume his new responsibility. 

"In addition to his country manager role, he will continue to lead the LMS Online Sales Organisation for Asia Pacific and China," said LinkedIn, which has 57 million members in India.
