Apple India Headquarter Has A New Leader, Hoping To Boost Sales In This Market

Apple has appointed a new head of Apple India as a new attempt to boost sales in this market after a year with market share shrinking.

Apple has got a new leader for its Indian headquarter, that is Ashish Chowdhary. According to Apple’s confirmation, the new head will take his position from January 2019.

Chowdhary joined Nokia in 2003 and worked as the COO (Customer Operations Officer) for this Finnish phone maker. He also worked as the head of Indian Nokia Networks till 2007, then Managed Services Head of Nokia Siemens Networks. Continuing his career in Nokia, Chowdhary then headed the customer operations at Nokia Networks for Africa, Asia and Middle East (EMEA).

The National Network (TNN) reported that Apple aimed to find a new head with certain understanding of India and global operations. At the age of 53, Chowdhary graduated from the University of Delhi, India with a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. He also got a master’s degree from the Emory University, Atlanta, majoring Computer Science and Philadelphia’s Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, majoring Business Administration.

Hopefully, having Chowdhary as the new head of Apple India will help Apple improve its market share situation in this country. Apple hasn’t had a good year in India since its market share here shrank. Meanwhile, new Apple India’s head will remain his position as the head of Customer Operations at Nokia Networks as well as a member of Leadership Team at Nokia Group till 2018 ends.

Till then, Apple India will still run under Michel Coulomb’s leadership, who replaced Sanjay Kaul’s position in India last December.

This is another attempt from Apple, aligning with Tim Cook’s vision to expand its market share in the Indian market. Last month, in the earnings call, Apple CEO said he has faith in India. He believes in this market and its consumers, as well as the company can perform well there. Cook admitted that the currency weakness has recently become an obstacle for the brand, but these are only “speed bumps” in a much longer journey.
