He will drive all aspects of the business including supply and demand and bring the entire suite of mobile offerings into the programmatic full stack solution of C1X. NM will report to Rammohan Sundaram, MD & SVP of APMEA.

Speaking on the appointment, Sundaram said, “Having known someone over the last 10 years, it is indeed my pleasure to welcome Narayan Murthy into the leadership team of APMEA.

Narayan Murthy adds, “The start-up adrenalin got me to accept the role with C1X, the mandate is challenging and I am looking forward to ensuring the growth of the business by hitting the ground running and having worked with Ram in the past at Tribal and Yahoo, I know the pace is going to be like a hundred-meter dash and I am up for it. Our product offering at C1X is unique and one of its kind and I am looking forward to rolling my sleeves up again and getting this kick started across Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa.”
