Even as Twitter rises in popularity in India, its leadership continues to see changes. Former Network18 Digital CEO Manish Maheshwari will take charge of Managing Director from next week.

 

Reporting to Maya Hari, Twitter’s Vice President and Managing Director of Asia Pacific, Maheshwari will be responsible for driving an integrated business strategy to accelerate Twitter’s audience and revenue growth in the country, overseeing Twitter India’s teams in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru.

 

Said Hari: “India is one of our fastest growing audience markets for Twitter in the world and our purpose is to serve the public conversation in India. We are thrilled to have Manish join us at this important time to take our Indian business to the next level. He has a successful track record of building strong digital businesses and leading teams in India, extensive experience working at the intersection of media and technology sectors, and a deep understanding of Indian consumer trends over the past 20 years. Under his leadership, we will continue to invest in India to empower all elements of Indian society to have a public voice to be heard through Twitter.”

 

Added Maheshwari: “The future of India is digital-first and full of possibilities with the world’s largest youth population and soon, the world’s largest workforce. I’ve been a Twitter user for more than 10 years now and I’m excited to lead Twitter India now to greater heights in the country. With premium Indian content on the rise in multiple regions across the country, I believe we are scratching the surface of what’s possible with Twitter in India. With our amazing teams across India, I’m bullish about the overall impact that Twitter India can create in the country and the influence of India on our global platform.”
