Mumbai: Twitter managing director, SE Asia, and senior director-business development, APAC, Arvinder Gujral has quit the company after an eight-year stint.
"After eight years it's time to say goodbye to the Blue Bird. From helping set up Twitter India in 2013 and running APAC BD to pivoting the SEA team to become one of the fastest growing revenue and audience markets for Twitter globally it's been an incredible ride," Gujral said in a LinkedIn post.
Gujral had joined the micro-blogging platform in 2013 as senior director-business development Asia Pacific. He was given the additional responsibility of leading SEA as MD in 2017. He launched the service in new markets in SEA besides expanding partnerships in the region with media companies, governments, agencies, and clients. He was also the founding member of Twitter India in 2013 where he helped set up India operations which today has three offices.
Gujral is an executive leader commanding over 22 years of experience in internet, media, telecom, tech consulting, and advertising. Prior to Twitter, he was at Aircel where he launched the brand nationally. Gujral was previously associated with companies like Infosys, FCB Ulka and iGATE. His next move is still unknown.
