Maneesh Dhir elevated as International Operations Head of AOL

Time Warner’s Internet unit AOL has promoted Maneesh Dhir as its International Operations Head. His new designation would be that of Executive Vice-President. Dhir will now be responsible for the company’s overseas business opportunities in Europe, Asia and the Americas. Dhir will report directly to AOL President, Ron Grant. Dhir will be working from the company’s Bangalore office.

In his previous assignment as AOL’s Senior Vice-President and Country Manager in India, Dhir had led all of the company’s operations, including technology development, back-office operations and call centre operations.

Dhir began his career with Sun Microsystems as a software engineer. He later co-founded Sun’s server appliance business. He then moved to Kiva Software, a pioneer in application server technology, which was acquired by Netscape in 1997 for $190 million. At Netscape, Dhir was the VP-GM of the Application Platform division managing a diverse portfolio of platform and application products, including the Netscape Web Server and e-commerce applications.

Post the acquisition of Netscape by AOL, Dhir was briefly part of AOL’s West Coast operations before moving to Bangalore, where he has now applied his experience at home and abroad to launch and nurture all three of AOL’s Indian operations.
