"Anil has led some of the biggest technology MNCs in India and his experience will be invaluable as we continue our charter to help companies solve their most complex business and technology challenges. I look forward to working with Anil to deepen our customer engagement, expand our strategic partnerships, and deliver advanced solutions to help companies in India accelerate their data-led innovation," Karan Bajwa, managing director at Google Cloud India, said.

He will coordinate all software development support efforts for Google Cloud in the country, according to a company statement.

"...Anil Bhansali has joined Google Cloud to help grow and scale our software development support efforts in India so we can continue expanding and advancing Google Cloud services," Amit Zavery, Vice President of Engineering at Google LLC, said.
