Bajwa will now be spearheading all regional revenue and go-to-market operations for Google Cloud, including those on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Google Workspace.

In his new role, Bajwa will report to Rob Enslin, President of Sales, Google Cloud.
Speaking about Bajwa’s promotion, Rob Enslin said, “Since Bajwa joined us in March 2020, Google Cloud in India has grown from strength to strength. He’s advanced the digital transformation journeys of many large Indian organisations across industries and successfully expanded our partner community. He brings tremendous management and sales experience with him to this regional role, and we’re thrilled to have him at the helm of our APAC business.”
Referring to his new responsibilities, Bajwa said, “With the disruptions of 2020 behind us, a true test of 2021 will be how companies re-platform and build on the cloud not only for resilience but agility and innovation, and I’m excited for the opportunity to lead Google Cloud’s business in APAC to maximize this next phase of growth.”
