In his earlier role as Vice President of the iWay cyber café chain business, Siva brought a deep insight and understanding of consumers, and executed initiatives to grow business revenues through innovative services, products and promotions in synergy with our portal strategies. While we will see the result of these efforts going forward, I believe that he will bring a fresh perspective to how we grow our portals and online advertising business both in India and overseas. With his rich experience in building brands, understanding of media, marketing and consumer behaviour, I am confident he will play a key role in further strengthening and growing our portal business in tandem with our access strategies."

The Net is the most exciting medium of our times, and it will be our intention to maximize the opportunities presented by this versatile medium for compelling and relevant online content for Indians, to add to the quality of their lives. This includes extending the leadership we have in broadband content with www.sifymax.in, our popular portal www.sify.com, our city-centric broadband portal strategies, and www.samachar.com, the most popular site for non-resident Indians.

I believe this will be the most exciting and challenging phase of my career, and I look forward to making a difference to Sify‘s pioneering efforts for exciting India-centric online content in synergy with our access businesses," he added.
