Both appointments are effective from 1 June 2024, the company said in a statement.

In his new role, Bhavya is responsible for Avanade’s strategic direction and priorities, accelerating business growth, expanding the company’s market-leading position, and creating an inclusive culture across Avanade’s most diverse regions that include Asia-Pacific, Japan and Latin America.

Under his leadership, Avanade’s Southeast Asia business has experienced double-digit growth, recognised as an inclusive employer, and named Microsoft’s leading partner in the region.

Bhavya is an alumnus of the Harvard Business School, holds a master’s in business administration (MBA) and a Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics and Communications. He also sits on the board of International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR), a global non-profit organisation whose mission is to empower rural people to build resilient communities and attain socioeconomic equity through creative and community-led action.

Pamela Maynard, CEO, Avanade said: “I am thrilled that Bhavya Kapoor is taking on the role of Area President for Growth Markets at Avanade.
