New York headquartered robotic process automation (RPA) firm UiPath has elevated Manish Bharti to president for the India region.
Bharti joined UiPath India at its inception to lead the sales function and moved up to serve as senior vice president for global accounts. In his new role, Bharti will be responsible for scaling UiPath by looking at overall business and technology units within the company’s India operations, UiPath said in a statement.
He will also take on additional responsibilities from Rajeev Mittal, managing director-India, who is moving on to pursue other opportunities.
“Manish is a business builder with proven experience of setting up and scaling complex technology businesses across North America, Asia Pacific and India. In his previous role at UiPath, Manish has led several of our key customer relationships across the globe and we are confident that he will steer UiPath’s growth by offering customers a seamless experience and helping them accelerate their digital transformation journey,” Daniel Dines, UiPath co-founder and CEO said.
UiPath said that Bharti will primarily focus at scaling RPA implementations across diverse industry verticals which include banking and financial services, technology, manufacturing, retail and healthcare leading engagements with global Fortune 500 companies for deeper adoption of RPA.
An alumnus of Harvard Business School and the Indian Institute of Management, Bengaluru, Bharti has over 22 years of global sales and delivery experience. He has worked with companies such as Digital Domain India, HTL Technologies, SkyTech Solutions, Mahindra Satyam, Metabyte and Automation Anywhere among others.
The company has also elevated Raghunath Subramanian, previously CEO of UiPath India, as the non-executive chairman of UiPath Entities in India, the statement added.
“I would like to thank Raghu for building our India business from scratch. He has been instrumental in building developer and academic momentum for the UiPath platform and championing India as the RPA talent pool of the world,” Dines said. Subramanian will continue to be associated with the company as non-executive chairman for UiPath India, Dines added.
Subramanian has over 20 years of experience in the technology sector. He has worked with companies like Gateway Research and Consulting Services, GTL, HCL Technologies, Indus Management Consultant, Exl Service and Hexaware Technologies.
Last month, UiPath launched its next-generation RPA platform, which it claims will help companies scale their automation programmes at high speed from a single platform. In April, it had closed a growth funding round worth $568 million led by Coatue Management.
