With Singh’s departure, Twitter has split the INSEA and MENA regions. While MENA has been aligned to EMEA managed by Benjamin Ampen, INSEA has been aligned to APAC region managed by Maya Hari. Hari has been elevated to the Managing Director role for SE Asia & India. She had joined Twitter in 2014 as Senior Director, Product Strategy & Sales - APAE (APAC + LATAM + MENA). Prior to joining Twitter, Hari had stints with Samsung as Director Content & Services, Conde Nast as Director, Digital (Internet & Mobile), Microsoft, Google, e.t.c.
