Former Microsoft India MD Rajan Anandan To Head Google India

Google has brought in Rajan Anandan to head the Google India business, as VP (India Sales and Operations). Anandan takes over from Shailesh Rao, who, until recently, had dual roles – that of MD and Head of Sales for India, and MD (Japan and Asia-Pacific) for Media and Platform Sales at Google. Rao will remain in Gurgaon, but will now focus full time on the more important Media and Platform Sales business for Google, responsible for driving Google’s display sales in the region. This was inevitable.

Anandan, interestingly, joins from Microsoft India, where he was MD until August 2010. Prior to joining Microsoft India, he was Vice President and Country General Manager at Dell India. Anandan is an angel investor, and a member of the Indian Angel Network.

According to his profile at IAN, he has so far invested in the following companies: Authorgen, Druvaa, Viedea, Hungryzone, Digilogues, Innoviz, Taxspanner and Exclusively.in. Add to that his recent investments Authorstream and BuyThePrice.

As MediaNama had reported recently, Google India Private Ltd reported revenues of Rs. 779.34 Crore and a profit after tax of Rs. 97.96 crore from Jan 2009 To March 2010.
