Sunny will lead the efforts, working with our local stakeholders and partners,” it added.
Guglani, who assumed charges on Monday, holds a degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering from Panjab University, India and a Master’s Degree in General Management and Finance from LUISS Guido Carli, Italy.
