Intel today announced that Nivruti Rai will be the new India Site General Manager.
The company said it will have two leaders from now — Nivruti Rai and Debjani Ghosh, managing director, South Asia — to represent Intel in India.
Nivruti Rai, who has been with Intel for the past 20 years, will replace Kumud Srinivasan who is relocating to the U.S. after the completion of her assignment in India.
Nivruti Rai has held several technical and business management positions across different functions both in the US and India. Based in Bengaluru, Nivruti Rai is vice president and director of R&D, in Platform Engineering Group (PEG), Intel Corporation.
“Intel India is a key design site for Intel with facilities in Bengaluru and Pune involving engineering capabilities across the computing spectrum from servers to IoT and wearables. India also presents us with opportunity to innovate and design relevant products and solutions to grow technology adoption in the country,” said Nivruti Rai.
Nivruti Rai will partner with Debjani Ghosh, vice president Sales & Marketing Group, managing director, South Asia to represent Intel in India.
Debjani Ghosh will continue to be responsible for establishing new growth areas for Intel in the South Asian region. Debjani Ghosh will continue leading strategic engagements with governments and industry to establish policies and initiatives that accelerate the adoption of technology in the region.
Intel India has more than 7,500 employees. Intel India is Intel’s largest non-manufacturing site outside the US and the presence of two senior leaders at the helm in the country reiterates Intel India’s strategic importance to Intel Corporation.
