Twitter’s overseas operations took yet another hit, as managing director of Southeast Asia, India, the Middle East and North Africa Parminder Singh is leaving the company.

Twitter’s overseas operations took yet another hit, as managing director of Southeast Asia, India, the Middle East and North Africa Parminder Singh is leaving the company.

Earlier this week, vice president of media for the Asia-Pacific region, Middle East and North Africa Rishi Jaitly made a similar announcement.

Singh announced his move in a series of tweets (embedded below):

Twitter issued the following statement on its restructuring in the region, as reported by TechCrunch:

We thank Parry for his contributions and leadership over the past three years at Twitter. He has been instrumental in setting up a strong business foundation across Southeast Asia, India and MENA, including some of our most promising emerging markets.

He has built and developed strong local teams across multiple geographies and established cross-functional operations that will have a long term impact on our business.

Parry felt now is an appropriate time for him to pursue other passions and work on his next adventure to help a content-based startup in Singapore and India. Over the next month, he will be closely involved in transitioning the business to the new leadership for continuity and momentum.

As part of our sales restructuring process, the MENA region will now be part of our EMEA business, while Southeast Asia and India remain part of our Asia-Pacific business, headed by Aliza Knox, our vp of Asia Pacific.

Maya Hari is our new managing director of Southeast Asia and India, reporting to Knox. Maya previously managed Twitter’s ads product strategy and adoption for Asia-Pacific, MENA and Latin America.

For India: Taranjeet Singh continues to be Twitter’s business head for India and remains the key client contact for Indian brand marketers and advertisers.

We wish Parry all the best and will continue to invest in these important regions to make Twitter the best way to see what’s happening right now around the world.
