Puneet Chandok, AWS India and South Asia’s President of Commercial Business, is set to depart from his position after four years of service, according to insiders familiar with the development. His tenure at the Amazon’s cloud computing division will end on August 31, 2023.
Before his venture with AWS, Chandok carved his leadership trajectory with industry titans McKinsey & Company and IBM Global Services. However, his decision to step down from AWS comes amidst the company’s bold declaration of investing a whopping $12.7 billion into India’s cloud infrastructure by 2030.
Stepping into Chandok’s shoes, Vaishali Kasture, the Head of Enterprise, Mid-Market, and Global Businesses for AWS India and South Asia, has been announced as the interim leader of commercial business, a move effective immediately.
The shift in leadership follows closely on the heels of AWS’s ambitious plans aimed at satiating the burgeoning demand for cloud services across India. The last few years have seen a significant increase in cloud adoption across a wide range of industries and business sizes in the country. AWS, a dominant player in this realm, boasts a diverse portfolio of clients, including the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Aarogyasri Health Care Trust, Ashok Leyland, Axis Bank, HDFC Life, and Titan.
