5 Jun 2023

Vaishali Kasture to take over as interim leader of AWS India & South Asia


Puneet Chandok, the head of Amazon Web Services (AWS) India and South Asia, has resigned from his position. Chandok had been leading AWS India since June 2019.

Vaishali Kasture, who currently heads enterprise, mid-market and global businesses at AWS India & South Asia, will take over as the interim leader. The change will be implemented with effect from August 31.

Chandok's departure comes as AWS announced its intention to invest 1.06 trillion rupees ($12.87 billion) in India by 2030. This substantial investment reflects a doubling down on previous commitments, aiming to meet the increasing demand for cloud services in Asia's third-largest economy.

Amazon has not yet commented on the reason for Chandok's departure. The news regarding his departure was communicated to a wider group of Amazon executives on Tuesday.
