Former Alight APAC Head Joins Darwinbox, Expected To Help Drive Global Growth

Darwinbox announced today that Shaswat Kumar has been appointed to the executive leadership team as Senior VP of Global Customer Success and Delivery.

Formerly the Asia Leader at Alight Solutions, Kumar comes with two decades of multi-geographical and multi-cultural experience in helping businesses with their HR transformation journeys. In his role at Alight, he helped to establish the firm as the preferred partner for HR and business solutions and was responsible for crafting and executing regional expansion strategies that positioned Alight as a dominant player in the region.

Before Alight, he was a practice leader and partner at Aon, specializing in HR transformation for large clients across the Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa. He was part of the Aon Hewitt HR Effectiveness Group in the early 2000s, at a time when HR transformation was still a very new practice.

Now, Kumar’s appointment comes shortly after Darwinbox was named to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud HCM Suites 2021, making it the youngest and only Asian firm on the list. His addition to the leadership team is expected to contribute significantly towards fast-tracking Darwinbox’s growth.

“Under Shaswat’s leadership, we strongly believe we will be able to build a high-growth organization that can scale globally. Leveraging his experience to drive and demonstrate value realization to enterprise customers through HR transformations, he will be instrumental in building our reputation as a trusted advisor for our customers,” said Rohit Chennamaneni, Co-Founder of Darwinbox.
