Shashwat Sharma elevated to COO of Bharti Airtel

Shashwat Sharma has been reportedly elevated to the post of Chief Operating Officer at Bharti Airtel, said the telecom company on its website and its filings to the Bombay Stock Exchange.

His appointment is in line with the changes the telecom company has made to its management board, said a news report citing the filings. Sharma was heading the Marketing and Consumer Business for Bharti Airtel, and was Chief Executive of Airtel DTH, its linear TV distribution business.

Amit Tripathi will be filling Sharma’s position as Director of Marketing and Customer Experience and will join the board. He has been with Airtel for 13 years and has served as the Chief Executive for the telco’s Kerala and Tamil Nadu markets previously.

In the changes that took place over the last week, Sharma replaces Sunil Taldar, Director of Operations for the India Business, heading transformation for the telecom company’s Africa business.
