Intuit, a Mountain View, California headquartered provider of business and financial management solutions, has promoted a vice president (VP) as its India site leader, effective Monday.
Saurabh Saxena will take on the new role of leading India operations, in addition to his current role as VP of product development for a small business and self-employed clients, at the company.
Saxena will take over from existing managing director of Intuit India, Sanket Atal. Global customer relationship management (CRM) giant Salesforce, last week, announced its decision to rope in Atal as its new India managing director (MD).
Intuit, which services small businesses, consumers and accounting professionals, offers products that include the tax preparation application TurboTax, personal finance app Mint, and the small business accounting program QuickBooks.
“Today, Intuit’s India site is a thriving Intuit microcosm with over 1,000 employees driving innovation for our global products and services, aligning with our strategy to become an AI driven expert platform,” Intuit said in a statement, which added that Saxena assumed the new leadership role with over 13 years of experience at Intuit.
Saxena currently leads the product suites of QuickBooks (QB) Online Advanced, QB Desktop, QB Enterprise, Point of Sale, and Intuit Market, the statement added. Prior to joining Intuit, Saurabh worked at Intel.
