MUMBAI: Former Twitter Inc.’s India head Rishi Jaitly has been appointed as the chief executive officer (CEO) of Times Global Partners, a group initiative that supports the launch and expansion of emerging global digital companies in India. Jaitly will replace Puneet Singhvi who was till now the chief operating officer.

Satyan Gajwani, vice-chairman at Times Internet, the digital arm of The Times of India group, said they were thrilled to welcome Rishi. Under his leadership, both Twitter and Google in the last decade had grown from scratch, and were now involved in every segment of India’s business. This appointment comes as a part of Times efforts to increase partnerships investments in media platforms and global technology.

Jaitly was earlier serving as India head and then as vice-president, Asia Pacific, Middle East and North Africa, at Twitter for four years. He was a member of Google’s original Indian management team before joining Twitter. In a statement, Jaitly said his mission had always been to harness the power of technology and media to ensure they fully realised the untapped potential of people, communities and markets.

In 2015, he became the VP to lead the Twitter teams who drive strategic partnerships with the news, government, entertainment, sports, TV industries, and others in the mass and emerging media landscape. Jaitly tweeted, “ Building/leading @TwitterIndia, and expanding @TwitterMedia across Asia Pacific & Middle East, was the leadership experience of a lifetime.”
