Voice&Data - - PEOPLE -

Af­ter Twit­ter In­dia head Rishi Jaitly, mi­cro-blog­ging web­site MD, Par­min­der Singh has re­signed from the com­pany af­ter a three-year stint. He dis­closed this move on his so­cial me­dia ac­count-twit­ter. Singh was the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at Twit­ter for In­dia, South East Asia, and the Mid­dle East and North Africa re­gions. Singh had joined Twit­ter from Google in Novem­ber 2013. At Google, he was lead­ing the com­pany’s Dis­play Ad­ver­tis­ing busi­ness for the Asia Pa­cific re­gion. Prior to Google, he had also worked at IBM, Ap­ple and HCL, ac­cord­ing to his LinkedIn pro­file.

Twit­ter In­dia head Rishi Jaitly had re­signed from the com­pany af­ter spend­ing four years at the pop­u­lar mi­croblog­ging web­site.

At the global level, Twit­ter’s COO Adam Bain has also called it quits af­ter a six-year stint with the mi­cro-blog­ging site. Bain joined Twit­ter in 2010 and has been the man-in­charge of the com­pany’s en­tire rev­enue busi­ness be­com­ing COO last year at the same time that founder Jack Dorsey was named CEO.

CFO An­thony Noto will take over Bain’s COO role. Noto will han­dle both jobs tem­po­rar­ily, but Twit­ter has al­ready started a search to hire a new CFO to report di­rectly to CEO Jack Dorsey. A source within the com­pany de­scribed this search as one of Twit­ter’s “top pri­or­i­ties.”

Noto’s re­spon­si­bil­i­ties will in­clude the com­pany’s live con­tent busi­ness, ads, and data, plus global part­ner­ships and busi­ness de­vel­op­ment.

The news comes in amidst a rough patch for Twit­ter, with the com­pany lay­ing off 9 per­cent of its work­force last month af­ter fail­ing to find a buyer.
