Qualcomm Names New Head In India

San Diego-based Qualcomm said this morning that it has named Sunil Lalvani as its new Vice President and President of Qualcomm India, replacing Avneesh Agrawal, who is departing the company. Lalvani was previously at BlackBerry, where he had most recently been managing director of India and SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation). He also has served at EMC, Nokia, Cisco Systems, and SITA Equant Network (now Orange Business Services). Qualcomm did not say what former Qualcomm India president Agrawal--who had been at the company for 21 years--will be doing, but said he is pursuing "entrepreneurial ambitions."
