Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, has appointed Anand Sanghi as president of its Asia market operations. The Asia Pacific business is comprised of three strong teams in China, India and Asia, where Sanghi will report directly to Stephen Liang, Emerson Network Power Asia Pacific president.
In his new role, Sanghi will assume full leadership and general management responsibility for Emerson Network Power’s Asia organization covering Australia and New Zealand, South East Asia, Japan, South Korea, and Pakistan.
The appointment is indicative of Emerson Network Power’s business in the region which has seen steady growth through the years despite fluctuations in the economy and the company’s core IT&C markets. It also reflects the company’s confidence in its strategy in the region, as it continues to expand with new customers, partners, and geographies.
“Asia is an exciting market with sophisticated and demanding customers, we have a terrific team and I am proud to be part of it,” commented Sanghi. “With the recent global acquisitions of Avocent and Chloride, we are best positioned to support communications and computing infrastructure needs with the most innovative and efficient products, solutions, services and true Data Center Infrastructure Management. This provides a solid foundation for Emerson’s industry leadership and continued growth in Asia.”
Sanghi joined Emerson in 1994 as a business planner for Copeland, now part of Emerson Climate Technologies. He held several roles of increasing responsibility in Copeland and was later promoted to director of planning and business development in Emerson Electric in Asia Pacific based out of the corporate office in Hong Kong. He moved to Emerson Network Power in Asia Pacific in 2001 as director of planning, then product management, service and marketing. Most recently, Sanghi was vice-president of operations for Emerson Network Power in Asia.
“Anand has been a key contributor in the success of Emerson and Emerson Network Power here in Asia,” said Liang. “His skills at understanding customer needs, technology and cross-cultural management should give us the strong leadership required to lead a dynamic and diversified Asia organization.”
Sanghi has an MBA from the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad and a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical & Electronics Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. Sanghi is married with two small boys, and is based in the regional headquarters in Manila.
