The company said some key milestones achieved during his leadership tenure in India include the launch of Hindi language to help members unlock greater value from the platform, the member-base in India crossing the 100 million members mark highlighting the ‘growing relevance’ of the platform for professionals, and ‘substantial’ expansion of the marketing solutions business enabling marketers to tap into the platform’s full potential for greater business impact.

“We thank Ashutosh for his decade of dedicated service and wish him all the best for the future. As we continue to grow and scale our business in this strategic market, our APAC and India leadership teams will lean in as we finalize the appointment of a new country manager for India,” the company said in a statement.

LinkedIn has around 120 million members in India. The rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is set to impact more than half of the jobs in India where an increasing number of professionals are embracing AI skills more than any other country, said Tomer Cohen, chief product officer at LinkedIn in an interview to ET last month.

Cohen said India is also among the top five countries with the most AI talent, and Indians are using AI skills three times more than the global average.
