Duolingo, the language learning app, has announced the appointment of Karandeep Singh Kapany as the company’s first official representative in India. He will act as the Country Marketing Manager and lead growth, marketing, and operations in the Indian market.
Kapany is a senior management executive with over 11 years of experience across multiple industries and geographies, he also has a vast background in brand marketing. Prior to joining Duolingo, he led marketing efforts for stalwarts like Tanishq, HolidayIQ and Verse (Dailyhunt and Josh).
Kapany said, “In a country as diverse as India which has 22 official languages, 121 spoken languages and countless regional dialects, language plays a crucial role in everyday life. To some, language learning may be a step towards the future and to others it is a way to stay connected to their roots. Whatever the reason be, we are thrilled to partner with Indians in their journey to master a new language. I look forward to my role at Duolingo and believe the growth we’ve seen in India thus far is only the tip of the iceberg.”
