  • Apple Reportedly Looking to Hire its First Government Affairs Officer in India

    Citing a LinkedIn post, The Economic Times is reporting that Apple is looking for a New Delhi-based senior manager well versed in India’s governmental apparatus who will represent the company on key policy issues. This hire is part of an overarching plan where the company is looking to aggressively target the growing market.

    More information regarding the move can be gained from an identical listing posted to Apple’s own corporate jobs website from June. The potential hire will “take the lead on key policy issues, representing Apple’s position with policy makers and within trade associations” and “develop and maintain relationships with key stakeholders.”

    Candidates that are ideal for the job should have existing relationships within the Indian Government and be experienced at driving trade association activity. The position reports to Apple’s Senior Director of Government Affairs for the EMEIA region. For those of you who didn’t already know, India is one of the many burgeoning economies that tech companies such as Apple are looking to gain ground in.

    According to Apple’s recent earnings report which was released earlier this week, sales in the Asia Pacific region, which includes India, rose 26% year-over-year to $2.95 billion. The performance was only bested by growth in China.

    We’ll have to see how Apple’s efforts pay off by waiting patiently.
