I am confident that with Pathmal at the helm, more and more multinational enterprises in the region will look to us to meet their cloud networking, hybrid WAN and business collaboration needs. Furthermore, Tata Communications is a business that values greatly our ‘DRIVE’ company culture, and we see our employees’ success as a key driver for our business success. That’s why it’s so great to see talented, ambitious individuals like Pathmal rise through the ranks and become one of our regional leaders.”

This unique combination puts us in an ideal position to address our customers’ increasingly complex and rapidly changing technology needs.”
