In yet another milestone, we have shed our
all_engineers tag on the company by bringing on-board one of the most seasoned software salesman of our times.
Please welcome Ravi Datanwala as our VP (Sales, India) – linkedin.com/in/ravidatanwala
I am extremely excited to bring Ravi on board – not only for his 18 years of diverse experience; but also, because he can write
SQL queries! Yeah, you heard that right – so unusual for a sales exec with such experience. However, unlike most of us, he doesn’t use foul language. That was sort of a disappointment, but we still hired him because he agreed to a massive paycut. That’s Ravi for you – level headed, tons of valuable experience and clear on his goals – basically all things we stand for.
Our enterprise sales story in India is now known to one and all. We take immense pride in powering customer engagement on some of the largest e-commerce players in this country – Flipkart, MMT, Jabong, Snapdeal, HomeShop18, Yatra, Freecultr, Healthkart, Zivame .. you name it! Take a look – webengage.com/customers-and-testimonials. Ravi has promised me that he will add all the remaining ones here :-). Ravi will head sales efforts in India and help us plan to move into other geographies.
Ravi will be adding a few members to his outreach team in months to follow. If you are keen, make sure you get in touch with him – ravi [at] webengage ]dot[ com.
Finally, I get the much needed respite. I am currently in the US on a month long business development trip. With Ankit and Ravi at helm of affairs – respectively on tech and sales, I can now focus on growth and product which were otherwise overshadowed too much by operations.
