NEW DELHI: Former IBM India head Karan Bajwa has been appointed by Google as Managing Director of Google Cloud in India.

Google Cloud has customers ranging from Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories, Hero Motocorp, ICICI Prudential, L&T Finance, LIC HFL, OYO Hotels and Wipro in India and has been trying aggresively to shore its market share in the country.

Earlier this month, the company also announced plans to expand its presence in India by launching a cloud region in Delhi, adding to its Mumbai region which was opened in 2017.


Google competes with the likes of Microsoft, IBM and Amazon Web Services in India in the Cloud business.

Rick Harshman, Managing Director of Google Cloud in Asia Pacific said, “Karan is a veteran in the industry with a proven track record of building and growing successful enterprise businesses. His experience will be a tremendous asset to Google Cloud’s business, our partners and our customers as we embark on this next phase of growth.”

Bajwa will be responsible for driving all revenue and go-to-market operations for Google Cloud’s extensive solution portfolio that includes Google Cloud Platform and G Suite. He will also advise the local developer ecosystem and India-based Global System Integrators (GSIs).

“I’m very excited about this new challenge and I look forward to extending Google’s global momentum in India. Leveraging cloud computing technology to modernize and scale for growth is on the agenda of almost every enterprise CEO and CIO and Google Cloud is committed to help every organization accelerate their digital transformation,” said Bajwa.

Earlier this year IBM appointed Sandip Patel, who most recently was at the helm of IBM Boston’s Insurance unit, as the managing director of its India and South Asia(ISA) operations.
