Paramount hires industry veteran to run affairs
Security reseller brings in ex-MindTree Middle East boss to handle operational matters
Security integrator Paramount has bolstered its top tier of management by appointing industry veteran G. Ramaswamy as its chief operating officer.
Ramaswamy boasts more than two decades of IT market experience, spanning technical support, sales, channel management and business development roles.
As COO, he will be responsible for all day-to-day operational matters, including strategy co-ordination and execution, resource management, operational quality and efficiency management.
Prior to hooking up with Paramount, Ramaswamy worked with several large IT suppliers. He initially started out at Indian IT services outfit Wipro before moving across to PC vendor Compaq. He then joined Sun Microsystems, managing the storage vendor’s iForce Partner Programme in India.
For the last seven years, Ramaswamy has worked for outsourcing firm MindTree, where he established and ran the company’s Middle East operation for three years prior to taking on a European role.
Premchand Kurup, CEO of Paramount, believes Ramaswamy’s addition will help take the company to the next level.
“He is well respected in the industry for his knowledge and problem solving capabilities,” said Kurup. “Paramount has ambitious business plans in the region and a highly experienced executive like Ram will play a key role in driving our business forward.”
Paramount has offices throughout the Gulf and specialises in providing enterprise-focused information security services.
