Pearson names Vinay Kumar Swamy as Country Head for India

Vinay Kumar Swamy

Vinay Kumar Swamy has been appointed as the new national head for India by the educational corporation Pearson.

Swamy has worked with Pearson for more than seven years, and in his new position, he will guide the company’s transition to being a digital-first online learning, skilling, and assessment business, according to a statement from Pearson. Siddharth Banerjee, who worked for Pearson as the Managing Director and SVP, India and Asia, has succeeded him.

India is a crucial market for us because of the country’s growing English-speaking population and the high level of demand for its students and skilled labour force around the world.

According to Marlene Olsavsky, Senior Vice President of Pearson’s High Education International division, “Swamy’s deep knowledge of the sector and his experience at Pearson will be a strategic lynchpin in our mission to accelerate digital learning and workforce upskilling in the region.”

According to Swamy, the government, businesses, and consumers in India are all adopting a digital-first attitude and desire that is causing paradigm upheavals in the education industry.
