New Delhi: Mobile chip maker Qualcomm on Monday said it had appointed Sunil Lalvani, former MD of BlackBerry for India and SAARC, as the president of its India operations.

He succeeds Avneesh Agrawal, senior vice-president and president of Qualcomm India and South Asia. Agrawal, who has been granted 159 US patents, is moving on to pursue his entrepreneurial ambitions. Lalvani’s appointment will be effective 27 July and he will report directly to Cristiano Amon, executive vice-president and co-president, Qualcomm Inc., the firm said in a statement.

With over 20 years of experience, Lalvani has also worked with EMC Corp., Nokia, Cisco Systems and SITA Equant Network (now Orange Business Services). “I am pleased to welcome Sunil Lalvani as vice-president (of Qualcomm) and president of Qualcomm India. His broad industry experience and extensive leadership experience will enable us strengthen existing strategic relationships, identify new opportunities for business growth and build new relationships in India," Amon said.

Lalvani joins Qualcomm at a time, when the company is undertaking a massive restructuring globally. Last week, Qualcomm announced that it would slash 15% of its global head count and eliminate about $1.4 billion in spending as it looks to increase resources in “lower-cost regions". Qualcomm has five engineering centres and offices in India in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai.
