Nevales Networks, an innovator in delivering comprehensive and affordable cloud-based managed security services, to the emerging businesses on a ‘Pay As You Use’ model, today announced its international expansion plans of entering the US market. The India headquartered Nevales Networks have started their operations in Silicon Valley and are shifting their headquarters to US as well. To support Nevales’s efforts in this region, Kaushik Thakkar, Silicon Valley-based IT entrepreneur and co-founder would lead the Operations as CEO, while Ravishankar steps down as CEO. Ravishankar will take on his new role as COO and will be responsible for India operations and South East Asia expansion.
Kaushik Thakkar is a seasoned Business and Technology Executive with an international background and strong commercial focus. He has hands-on experience building ventures from inception to companies with global presence and setting up business in Asia, Europe, Latin America and US. In addition to Nevales, Kaushik was a part of the founding team as well as board for PortWise. Kaushik also actively supports upcoming entrepreneurs and is early investor in Plingm and Nevanta Media, among others and is also on the Board of Directors of Mara Online.
Mr Kaushik Thakkar, CEO of Nevales Networks said, “It gives us immense pleasure to take Nevales Networks to Silicon Valley. We have with our India team built a strong technology product for the global market and with Silicon Valley headquarters; we would be able to target US and other international markets. We are in talks with few of the prospective global partners in US who would associate with us and help us reach the right audience in the market. Like India, US also have lots of start-ups and emerging businesses would require our cost effective solution. We foresee a huge growth in the coming years.”
In addition to Kaushik and CTO Johan Rydell based out of California, Nevales plans to add product marketing and business development functions among others in the Valley.
Nevales Networks started its operations in 2010, founded by Silicon Valley-based IT entrepreneur Kaushik Thakkar, along with Sunija Rishi, a marketing specialist and Ravishankar, an experienced Banker. With their core concentration on emerging businesses, in short span of time they received overwhelming response and acceptance in the market. As their next level of planning they have started their operations in US and would also shift their HQ to Silicon Valley. Nevales Networks is one of those successful Indian companies who have taken the strong step of expanding and offering their unique product and service overseas.
