Salesforce recruits former SBI Boss hired as India CEO: Report

In most villages in India, men are tasked with prime responsibilities to run the family as they were considered as the sole breadwinners and you don’t often see many women going to offices as they are forced to sit at home and do household chores. On the contrary, men go to offices, stress a lot and work without seeing clock needles to earn wages either daily, weekly or on a monthly basis.

Women have very limited opportunities to study and were always inferior to men. They never really had the liberty to do what men were doing and hence they became homemakers. However, in the male-dominated society, some women are braving against all odds to become successful in life.

There is nothing in this world that can stop women from doing many many good things in life. They are bound to achieve at a very young age and also they are destined to get better and brighter when they become old. To achieve phenomenal things in life, a strong vision with intensity, tenacity and will power is just enough to drive one forward.

Case in point, Arundhati Bhattacharya who is one of the country’s best-known former bankers has been roped in by the US cloud-based service provider Inc as its India chief executive officer, a source in the know of developments with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

However, Bhattacharya declined to comment, while Salesforce did not quickly respond to a request for comment.

Bhattacharya had earlier headed the State Bank of India (SBI), which is the country’s largest lender, and was also the first woman to lead the 200-year-old bank. She retired from State Bank of India in 2017 after spending four decades in several roles. This sums up the essential Arundhati Bhattacharya for you.

“She is a hugely credible name who comes with a wealth of experience and will help Salesforce expand in India,” added that source, who is aware of the new appointment.

Bhattacharya, 64 years old, will be based in Mumbai and join in April, the source added in a statement. She is currently chairman of SWIFT India which is part of a global payments network.

Salesforce offers an array of cloud storage and digital services to clients in India. Salesforce sees India as one of its fastest-growing regions. In January, Salesforce co-founder Parker Harris met with India’s trade minister in the national capital and also briefed him on the company’s growth plans.

It is worth mentioning here that Salesforce will create more than 500,000 job opportunities and $67 billion in new business revenues in India through 2024 as per 2019 report by International Data Corporation. It should be noted that the Indian government has also partnered with the company to work towards skills development.
