Microsoft India Chairman and Corporate Vice President Ravi Venkatesan has resigned, Microsoft said on Thursday.

Mr. Venkatesan has decided to pursue opportunities outside Microsoft, Microsoft said in a statement.

A successor will be named in the near future and Mr. Venkatesan will partner Microsoft International President Jean-Philippe Courtois to ensure a smooth transition with his successor, the statement adds. “Mr. Ravi came to Microsoft India at a critical time. He has since architected our growth, making this among the fastest growing markets for us. He has laid a strong foundation which, I believe, will help us continue our business successes,” Mr. Courtois said.

Sanket Akerkar will continue to lead overall sales, marketing and services businesses as the Sales and Marketing Head for India, while Hemant Sachdev will continue to lead the Consumer and Online business. — PTI
