With our products helping businesses in every time zone there is, and a team of colleagues spread over 16 offices worldwide, I look forward to helping take Euromonitor’s communications to the next level across all our markets.”
Hari joins Euromonitor following a spell at British tech unicorn and money transfer giant Zepz/WorldRemit, where he led the communications department as its global director of PR & communications. Hari helped take the organisation’s public relations through market expansion and client growth, a US$292 million Series E funding round, and a pre-IPO news cycle.
Born and raised in Mumbai, Hari started out as a journalist in the city with a two-year tenure at the local tabloid Yuva.
Over the past 15 years, Hari has helped manage EMEA communications from Paris for NYSE Euronext stock exchange-listed fintech major Ingenico and later served as associate director of communications for Europe's biggest education incubator/network Global University Systems, which also has a large operation in India with offices in Hyderabad and Gurugram.
