Solutions, the CommScope, Inc., division that is a global leader in
wireless communications systems and products, has promoted Navin Vohra
to vice president of sales, Asia Pacific.
Vohra previously served as Andrew’s vice president of sales for India
and SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) countries.
In his newly expanded position, which is effective immediately, Vohra
will be responsible for leading all of Andrew’s customer-facing sales
activities in the Asia Pacific region, including India but excluding
China. The China sales organization will continue to be led by Chinnee
Tong, vice president of sales for China.
Both Vohra and Tong, along with other regional wireless sales leaders,
report to Ben Cardwell, the former head of wireless sales for
Asia-Pacific who recently was promoted to senior vice president for
global wireless sales.
With more than 20 years experience in the telecommunications industry,
Vohra joined the company in 2005 from UTStarcom (formerly CommWorks, a
3Com company), where he was director of business development and head
operations for West and South India.
"We are delighted to have Navin heading up our Asia Pacific region,"
said Cardwell. "He has provided astute and decisive leadership by taking
Andrew to a market leadership position in India. Under his helm, the
India team greatly expanded customer relationships and tripled its
annual wireless sales. His wealth of expertise in strategy, sales and
marketing, and business development will be a huge asset to Andrew and
our customers going forward."
Vohra joined Lucent Technologies India in 1996 as account director where
he was instrumental in securing a major infrastructure project for a
nationwide CDMA-1X network. Prior to joining Lucent, Navin accumulated
