Cyan increases operations in India and appoints new Country Manager
Cambridge, UK – Cyan, an integrated system and software design company that delivers mesh-based flexible wireless systems for utility metering and lighting control, has appointed Shiv Kaushik as its Country Manager in India.
Mr Kaushik, who has more than 18 years of experience with leading IT companies, has joined Cyan to help build key relationships in the energy and utility sector in India. Kaushik has experience in this sector selling software-based solutions for companies such as Oracle, Wipro and Ferranti. While employed in senior business development roles in India, Kaushik worked with system integrators and utilities to manage the deployment of the IT based systems required for the implementation of energy management solutions.
Furthermore, Cyan has recruited two local senior field application engineers to provide additional customer and technical support in India.
In addition to the recruitment of field-based personnel, Cyan is also qualifying additional manufacturing facilities in the form of two India-based Tier-1 contract equipment manufacturers. Both manufacturers are global companies offering a comprehensive range of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) services and they hold ISO 9001 and other regulatory certificates. Part of the qualification process is a pre-production build to verify quality and performance. These additional manufacturing facilities will work in parallel with the current production in China to meet volume demands going forward.
John Cronin (pictured above), executive chairman of Cyan, commented: “We are pleased to welcome Shiv and the application engineers to Cyan. As demand grows for Cyan’s Advanced Metering Infrastructure solutions, it is necessary for Cyan to develop partnerships with industry leaders who can provide the knowledge and expertise. We are also pleased to be adding additional manufacturing capacity to meet local demand in India.”
