Co-founder and CEO of Simplifai, Bård Myrstad is glad to see that the Indian office will be in good hands:
«We are very pleased that Vasim has accepted this new challenge to step up from the role of COO to the top spot. With her background and personal abilities, she is the ideal person to lead our Indian team in the exciting times ahead. We wish to thank Nitin Pednekar for having built Simplifai India from scratch into a disruptive and efficient technology powerhouse, in less than 2 years, and wish him the best of luck in his new project.”
– In India, especially in IT and AI companies, the number of female CEOs and women in managerial positions is in general still low. We are proud to be contributing in favor of gender equality and diversity, to be a part of change in the right direction. There shouldn’t be any hesitation or thought of having to compromise talent with a focus on diversity. Simply hiring the best candidate should be the only aim in any hiring process.
