Yahoo! India ex-CTO, Dr Prasad Bharat Ram, to head Google India’s R&D operations

Google Inc has hired Dr Prasad Bharat Ram, former CTO at Yahoo! India, to head engineering and site operations at the company’s R&D centre in Bangalore. Dr Ram, whose appointment is effective immediately, will head the engineering operations and product innovation at the centre.

“Dr Ram brings to Google a wealth of experience in technology development and organisation building as well as a deep knowledge of the local Indian market,” said Alan Eustace, Vice-president of Engineering at Google. “Under the leadership of Prasad, the Google India R&D centre will develop even more innovative products and technologies for millions of Google users in India and around the world.”

In a statement, Venkat Panchapakesan, CEO, Yahoo! India R&D, said, “Dr Prasad Ram has decided to move on from Yahoo! India R&D due to personal reasons. We value his contribution to our organisation and wish him success.”

Prasad has over 15 years’ experience in computer science research and engineering, and has worked extensively in software and online industries. He began his career as a research scientist at Xerox PARC and has a B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering from IIT-Bombay and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

Commenting on his new assignment, Dr Ram said, “It is a great opportunity to join Google and be involved with a company that places such great value on innovation and creativity. By building on the already strong talent that exists at Google Bangalore, the centre will continue to build innovative global products as well as to bring new ideas to better serve our Indian users.”

Bangalore was among Google’s first global engineering offices, which now include Tokyo, Japan, Zurich, Switzerland, Beijing, China, Moscow, Russia and Sydney, Australia.
