Telecom Lead India: Cisco has appointed Anil Bhasin to lead its Services division in India and South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) region.
Bhasin began his Cisco career in 2001, as the head of its Banking and Finance (BFSI) and Commercial business for the Western region, where he doubled the revenue for both businesses. Based in Mumbai, Bhasin will report to Glen Cox, vice president, Cisco Services, Asia Pacific, Japan and China.
In his new role, Bhasin will oversee the build-up of momentum for Cisco Services, driving smart services adoption and helping customers and partners plan, build, and manage Cisco technologies and solutions for success. Cisco’s differentiated smart services are critical to this progression, by providing customers with insight into their network’s behavior and status, and proactively addressing potential issues.
“Continued momentum around our collaborative partner approach and smart service capabilities remain vital to the health of our Services business and Cisco’s growth overall,” said Cox. “I look forward to Anil and his team’s success as we continue to build and evolve our Services business over the next year.”
“Cisco Services is a critical component of our evolution from an IT product to a technology solutions company. I look forward to leading this team and ensuring that Services continues to be a strategic asset and a competitive advantage for Cisco,” added Bhasin.
