“Digital transformation isn’t just about digitising a channel or embracing more digital channels. It is linked to every area of the business and should assist anyone to think and act digitally for the issues they are accountable for, including sales, marketing, operations and customer service.

“It is focused on analyzing what drives “moments of truth” (instances when customers form an impression towards a company) to be able to come up with effective strategies that enable a true omnichannel and unforgettable customer experience.” 

A balance of long-term thinking and speed of innovation is required to be successful. This is embedded in GrowthOps Asia’s strong data culture which enables them to lead clients towards successful digital transformation.” Devinder commented.

“We expect our clients’ priority in 2023 to be on building trust, scalability, generation proliferation, personalisation, and the proper expertise and skills. I’m confident that we can provide this by cultivating data-driven behaviors across the organisation,” he added. 

Bringing with him a proven track record in defining and executing the data analytics roadmap and providing business insights to meet aggressive revenue goals & facilitating improvement of digital maturity in all business focus areas, Devinder joins a strong senior award-winning analytics team, including SEO and Analytic Director Nitesh Shrivastava and will report to Regional Head of Performance Marketing and Singapore General Manager, Shaad Hamid.

“Data is the lifeblood of any organisation’s digital strategy as it plays a crucial role in strengthening their overall business strategy. Our focus in GrowthOps Asia is to turn data into actionable insights for our clients which they can use to effectively steer their business in the right direction and make informed decisions, and Devinder is one of a few strategic hires we are making to become a leader in this domain,” comments Shaad Hamid, General Manager of Singapore and Regional Head of Performance Marketing.
