Bengaluru headquartered mobile advertisement platform InMobi has appointed Jayesh Ullattil as its vice president (VP) and general manager (GM) for India.

He will be a part of the Asia Pacific leadership team led by Vasuta Agarwal and will be based out of Bengaluru, a statement said.

Ullattil will be responsible for growing the mobile advertising and marketing business for the company across its portfolio of products, including programmatic and performance businesses, as well as data and online research platforms.

Ullattil has over 20 years of experience across diverse industries spanning fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), technology, media and entertainment, and digital media. Prior to joining InMobi, he served as VP of sales at over-the-top streaming service Hotstar. 

Ullattil has also worked at consumer brands such as Perfetti Van Melle, Nokia, Henkel and Blackberry.

He holds a B.Tech degree in Biomedical Engineering from Cochin University of Science and Technology, and PGPM in Marketing from Management Development Institute. 

He also pursued an executive education programme in digital and social media strategies from Indian School of Business.

"India is one of the most exciting and fastest-growing mobile markets across the globe and this is an opportunity to have an immediate and large impact on the future of the adtech industry,” Ullattil said.

In April, InMobi rolled out a revised compensation structure for its employees due to loss in business during the Covid-19 lockdown.
