Ashutosh Gupta to replace Mahesh Narayanan as LinkedIn's country manager
LinkedIn has announced the appointment of Ashutosh Gupta as country manager for India.  He replaces Mahesh Narayanan, who was country manager for India from January 2019 to June 2019. 
 
Gupta will take up the role on 2 September 2019. He will be relocating from LinkedIn's Singapore office to Mumbai. He had joined the company in 2013 to 
lead LinkedIn’s Marketing Solutions (LMS) in India. In 2016, he moved to Singapore to build LMS’s online sales organisation for Asia Pacific and China, a role he continues to hold. 
 
He said, “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. 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. I am excited and humbled to take on the role of country manager to drive LinkedIn India into its new decade."
 
Ashutosh will report to Olivier Legrand, MD, LinkedIn, Asia Pacific. 
 
Legrand said, “I am confident that Ashutosh’s strong understanding of the company’s business, his seasoned leadership experience, and deep market experience will drive forward the right strategic plans for India. As a sophisticated sales leader who has worked across regions, Ashutosh is highly skilled at building businesses at scale and evangelising the value of LinkedIn to members and customers. We look forward to partnering with him to foster the India brand.”
