With pride, we present to you Parag Agrawal, an IIT-Bombay alumnus and the current CEO of Twitter. Replacing Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s co-founder and former CEO, the Indian-American has added another Indian name to the list of global business leaders, reported Times Of India.

Tweeting a screenshot of an email that he’d written to the company, Jack shared the news of his resignation. He said that he trusts Chief Technical Officer (CTO) Parag Agrawal and will help him with the transition.

In a tweet expressing his gratitude towards Jack and announcing his new post at the San Francisco-based company, Agrawal penned, “I am honoured and humbled. And I’m grateful for your continued mentorship and your friendship. I’m grateful for the service that you built, the culture, soul, and purpose you fostered among us, and for leading the company through really significant challenges.”

As for Agrawal, he has been with Twitter for the past decade and promoted from his post as CTO to the CEO. He studied B Tech in Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Bombay and completed his PhD from Stanford University, reported Hindustan Times.

It’s indeed a proud moment that more than half-dozens of global giants are led by India-born personalities. People online praised Indians and highlighted the fact that other countries, especially the USA, are benefitting greatly from Indian talent.

Kudos to the likes of Agrawal making every Indian beam with pride. Naam roshan kar diya!
