KUALA LUMPUR, June 3: Avanade, one of Microsoft Corporation’s leading solutions providers, has announced the appointment of Bhavya Kapoor as its new area president for growth markets.

Most recently Avanade’s Southeast Asia Managing Director, Bhavya takes the reins from Rodrigo Caserta, who assumes a new role as Avanade’s global technology business group lead.

Both appointments are effective from June 1, 2024.

In his new role, Bhavya is responsible for Avanade’s strategic direction and priorities, accelerating business growth, expanding the company’s market-leading position, and creating an inclusive culture across Avanade’s most diverse regions that include Asia-Pacific, Japan and Latin America.

Bhavya reports into Pamela Maynard, CEO of Avanade, and joins Avanade’s global Executive Committee.

Bhavya joined Avanade in 2021 as Avanade’s Southeast Asia managing director. With over two decades of experience in business management, technology and consulting, he spearheaded Avanade’s Southeast Asia business to achieve double-digit growth, recognised as an inclusive employer and named Microsoft’s leading partner in the region.

On his new role, he said: “Growth Markets is an exciting confluence of the world’s most dynamic and diverse territories – and I am humbled and honoured to lead our people and business into the next chapter of growth.

“These regions are brimming with exceptional talents and organisations with immense potential, and I am eager to embark on this journey together with our people, clients, communities and ecosystem partners. Together we will empower individuals and businesses to make a genuine human impact through the power of AI, data, and human ingenuity.”
