The ex-boss of telecom giant Vodafone Arun Sarin will join Truecaller advisory board followed by a capital investment in the company, said a statement from Truecaller.
With his global experience and network, Arun Sarin will be focusing on supporting and providing required strategic direction at a time when the industry is going through a massive transformation.
Over the last few years, Truecaller have grown at an exponential rate both in terms of business and user base and received funding from companies like Sequoia Capital, Atomico, and KPCB.
“Having run a global mobile company I know operators do not like having calls that are not being picked up in their network. It is a waste of resource and it is chewing up the network capacity – that translates to lost revenue. Truecaller gives the consumer the right piece of information so they can complete the call. That is where I see a huge potential for Truecaller to be part of the bigger eco-system. This should be a gift from every operator to their customers.” said Arun Sarin in a statement.
