Parminder Singh, who led the Twitter business in India, Southeast Asia, Middle, Middle East & North Africa (MENA), had recently announced his decision to quit the online news and social networking service.
“An update. After leading Twitter in Asia’s most exciting markets (India/SEA/MENA) for 3 yrs, time to move on to new passions,” he said in a tweet on 2 Nov 2016.
In a follow-up tweet, he said: “Next steps — explore disruptive models to add value to Digital Content in Asia & step up pace to use technology for good!.”
Parminder, who has an MBA from Panjab University, joined Twitter in November 2013, from Google.
His last post at the search engine, which he joined in 2007, was as director of its Asia Pacific online media sales.
Following this, the micro-blogging website has appointed Maya Hari as its new Managing Director for South East Asia and India, who will be reporting to Aliza Knox, Vice President, Asia Pacific, according to one media report.
Calling Twitter “a vital force for good” and that “the world needs it”, Singh revealed his intention to help a content-based start-up in Asia after he completes his term at Twitter, the report added.
