Al Jazeera (Twitter’s new CEO is latest on list of India-born US tech honchos, ripreso da Bloomberg) sottolinea come la nomina di Parag Agrawal al vertice di Twitter costituisca la prosecuzione di una tendenza in atto: l’Asia si conferma come la regione dei talenti manageriali, non solo nelle Big Tech.
Scrivono Vlad Savov e Saritha Rai: Twitter Inc. on Monday became the latest Silicon Valley titan to appoint an Indian-born chief executive officer, joining the likes of Microsoft and Google in recognizing the Asian country as one of the world’s richest pools of tech talent. The appointment of former Chief Technology Officer Parag Agrawal to the top spot at Twitter amplifies the role played by immigrants in the world’s largest technology companies. He joins Satya Nadella of Microsoft Corp., Shantanu Narayen of Adobe Inc., Arvind Krishna of International Business Machines Corp. and Sundar Pichai of Alphabet Inc. among the highest-profile leaders of U.S. firms from Indian origin. Between them, that group of executives pilots companies with a combined market value nearing $5 trillion. Outside of tech, Indra Nooyi led PepsiCo Inc. for 12 years and Ajay Banga is executive chairman of Mastercard Inc. after a decade as CEO.
