The CRM major said Atal will be instrumental in driving the next phase of growth for Salesforce in India focusing on operational execution.

Salesforce, a leading business software supplier, has invested significantly in India over many years, adding more tech jobs, expanding its office space and partner ecosystem to support its customer base.

India is home to the second highest Salesforce workforce outside of the US with over 4,000 employees across Hyderabad, Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru.

The Salesforce Centre of Excellence (CoE), which went live in 2016 in Hyderabad, has been instrumental in fueling innovation globally, building end-to-end solutions for customers including some of the latest industry clouds – Consumer Goods, Manufacturing, Financial Services for Insurance and Hyperforce – built at the CoE.

Atal will report into Arundhati Bhattacharya, CEO and chairperson of Salesforce India.
