Parminder Singh, Managing Director of Twitter in India, followed former Twitter India Head Rishi Jaitly’s suit and stepped down from his post to move in with new passions. His resignation was also made known to the public via Twitter two days after Rishi Jaitly’s public announcement. Singh was the Managing Director for Twitter in India, South East Asia, the Middle East and the North Africa. He had joined Twitter in November of 2013, before working with Google India as its Business Head, where he later took over the role of the director of the online media sale for the Asia Pacific region.

Singh’s LinkedIn profile shows that he has also worked with the IBM, HCL and even Apple. Singh went on Twitter and thanked his colleagues and his followers and users of Twitter for their continued support. He said that hew as fortunate to have worked with some amazing clients, partners who drove him to innovate. He said that he would forever treasure the experience and the friendship.

He informed that Maya Hari will take on the mantle of managing Twitter India after his departure, whereas Benjamin Ampen will take over the Middle East and the North region. Singh praised them and said that both were great professionals and have previously worked closely with him.

This is the second resignation, by a top Twitter India official in a matter of 3 days. Although, both of them have been respected officials who have already worked with respectable organisations before and hence, must not be questioned, it has to be seen if the trend continues.
