Ex-Google Business Head - Play Store/ Ad mob | Advisor | Angel Investor | Mentor|

With 13 years at Google, I set up 2 multi million dollar businesses in India from scratch, Google Admob, and Google Play, where I led partnership, growth, strategy, prioritization and execution. I have been an advisor to CXO’s of top digital brands like Tesla, Disney, Airbnb, Uber, Nexon,Amazon,KING,Supercell,Flipkart,Ola,Hotstar,Zee5,MakeMyTrip,Sequoia,Byjus, Zomato, PayTM, among others.

The AdMob business grew several folds under my leadership, becoming one of the largest revenue generators and the fastest growing Admob market globally. I won several awards for my transformative initiatives/launches in India, some of which were scaled globally.

Single handedly leading the charge for Google Play for the first 2 years, I was able to evolve the Google Play platform to a business, growing the largest Android market globally several fold.

I have expertise in content, distribution, design, quality, digital growth and overall health of digital platforms. I have spoken at over a 100 events globally advising companies on building and growing their online footprint.
