Twitter’s Head For Asia Pacific Aliza Knox Resigns
Twitter’s struggle with dropping sales and reducing user base is something that is giving the company sleepless nights. Twitter miserably failed to reinstate its shareholder’s trust despite so many of its efforts. Company’s top executives who once shaped the firm also put their papers and left.
In another massive blow to the world’s top most micro-blogging website, Aliza Knox, who headed Asia Pacific operations of Twitter has formally tendered her resignation from the post. She ended up her 5 year stint with the company for exploring further opportunities.
Knox successfully created a strong foothold for Twitter in Asia with an office in Singapore that currently spans nine locations with over 100 people strong workforce.
In its official statement Twitter said:
“She pioneered Twitter’s Asia Pacific business (outside of Japan), championed our expansion into new markets and businesses such as Indonesia and China export advertising, set up our Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore, and led our diversity initiatives across the region.”
Twitter, in past, had witnessed resignation of several high-profile Asia-based executives in 2016. Managing Director for Southeast Asia, India, Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region Parminder Singh, India head Rishi Jaitly, China head Kathy Chen and Australia country boss Karen Stocks are among a few.
