Tata Comm Appoints Pathmal Gunawardana Head Of Americas Business

Tata Communications, a leading global digital infrastructure provider, has named Pathmal Gunawardana as its Head of Americas. In his new role, Gunawardana will be responsible for accelerating customer adoption of Tata Communications’ hybrid WAN, cloud enablement and business collaboration services across North and South America.

The company said this appointment reinforces the company’s growth strategy in the U.S., which focuses on leveraging its global technology capabilities and partnerships with the world’s leading cloud players to support multinational enterprises’ digital transformation.

“As businesses become more and more dependent on cloud and mobile applications to operate effectively on a global scale and stay competitive in the digital economy, we’re seeing growing demand for our capabilities,” Gunawardana said. “We have a differentiated value proposition in the U.S. market, which consists of the reach of our global network and the cloud connectivity, mobility and UCC services it underpins; our strategic partnerships; and our knowledge of regulatory issues across emerging and developed markets. This unique combination puts us in an ideal position to address our customers’ increasingly complex and rapidly changing technology needs.”

Pathmal Gunawardana has been with Tata Communications since 2015, serving previously as the company’s Vice President of Sales for the Americas. In this role, he was responsible for driving the development of near and long-term go-to-market strategy in both the service provider and enterprise segments in the region. Prior to joining Tata Communications, Gunawardana was Head of Global Mobility Vertical Sales at Juniper Networks. He has also held positions at Nokia Siemens Network, Alcatel Lucent Technologies and Bell Labs.

At present, the U.S. is Tata Communications’ largest market outside of India, and the company is seeing increasing adoption for its business collaboration and mobility expertise, as well as its IZO™ SDWAN, IZO™ Internet WAN and IZO™ Hybrid WAN cloud enablement services. These services enable businesses to build an innovative enterprise network that combines the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the public Internet with the resilience and reliability of a private network.
