Globetouch has appointed Arun Sarin as chair of its board of directors. Sarin will play a key role in guiding the Board and the wider company team as Globetouch continues to leverage the huge potential of the connected car and IoT markets.
Sarin brings more than 30 years’ experience of leading some of the world’s largest telecommunications companies. He served as global CEO of Vodafone PLC from 2003 until 2008, holding a Director position from 1999 to 2008. Prior to joining Vodafone, Sarin served as a director for AirTouch before becoming president and COO. Since retiring from Vodafone, he has taken on board positions with Cisco Systems, Accenture, Charles Schwab and Blackhawk Network Holdings, and has previously served on a number of boards for major global brands, including Safeway and The Gap.
“By building a unique global virtual ecosystem of network operators to support the connected car and IoT verticals, Globetouch is right at the centre of the key opportunities in connectivity. This is a market that offers unlimited growth, and I am keen to join the bold team at Globetouch and be part of the next wave of success,” said Sarin.
“The mobile market is a dynamic and competitive arena, and to have a chair with such a high profile and depth of experience to lead our board is both an honour and a hugely valuable asset,” said Globetouch CEO and board member, Riccardo Di Blasio.
