Great Learning has announced the appointment of Aparna Mahesh as chief marketing officer. She moves from BankBazaar where she was chief marketing officer.
Mohan Lakhamraju, founder and CEO, Great Learning, said, “The professional learning and higher education space is growing rapidly with digital skills becoming increasingly essential for professionals’ students. The need of the hour is to embrace lifelong learning and continuously upskill to build a successful career. We are confident that Aparna, with her experience of building brands and leading marketing functions, is the right person to amplify our message and take it to a newer and much larger audience. We are pleased to welcome her onboard as we build on our mission of providing high quality education to professionals and students in India and beyond.”
Mahesh said, “The speed at which things are changing today is mind boggling and staying contemporary by constantly upskilling is a necessity for survival. Covid has only accentuated this need and today 'learning' is at the centre of our collective consciousness, whether it's picking up entirely new knowledge & skills or going deeper into certain domains. I am thrilled to join Great Learning, a company that is committed to making professionals and students future-ready. I have tremendous respect for the vision of the founders and found a strong alignment with their values. The future belongs to those who learn continuously, and I am excited to be part of this journey.”
