Digital officers of India, unite!

Digital officers of India, unite!

A group of senior executives in India’s digital sector are looking to create a group of chief digital officers (CDOs) or equivalent in the country.

“The idea is to meet up, discuss common issues, exchange views, and really build this function,” Jaspreet Bindra, SVP and head of digital transformation at Mahindra Group, says on LinkedIn.

“For the core group, we are looking at CDOs/equivalent: working on digital transformation of the company’s businesses from ‘legacy’ to ‘digital’. Later on we will certainly have people involved in digital marketing, digital technologies, start-ups, digital consulting firms etc,” he explains.

“I will be working with Internet and Mobile Association of India [IAMAI] on this.”

Bindra is calling on CDOs and other digital execs in India interested in this initiative to get in touch with him on LinkedIn.

Bindra joined Mahindra in mid-2015 from where he was CEO. He is also a start-up mentor and angel investor.
