Rajan Anandan to lead Google India

Google has brought in Rajan Anandan to lead its India business as vice president of India sales and operations.

Most recently Anandan was managing director of Microsoft India, responsible for all aspects of Microsoft’s software, OEM and services business in India. Prior to joining Microsoft, he was the vice president and country general manager of Dell in India.

Daniel Alegre, president, Japan and Asia-Pacific operations, said, "We always hire the best talent available. India is an important growth country for Google.  We were voted the best company to work for in India and we are hiring across functions. With Internet users growing at 50% year-on-year, a strong leadership team will ensure that Google captures this tremendous opportunity.  We are happy to have a leader of Rajan’s seniority and calibre to manage and lead it to the next phase of growth.”

Shailesh Rao, who has been covering two roles, that of the Japan and Asia-Pacific managing director, media and platform sales and managing director and head of sales, Google India, will remain in Gurgaon and move full-time to the former to deliver on the exciting growth plans for that business.
