Sanjay Singh is Akamai India Managing Director

BY A BUSINESS CORRESPONDENT

8 August, 2005: Bangalore, Karnataka, India, (Business Wire India): Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKAM), the leading global service provider for accelerating content and business processes online, announced the appointment of Sanjay Singh to the role of Managing Director of Akamai India. Mr. Singh will lead Akamai's India operations and further establish awareness for Akamai's Internet content delivery and application acceleration services.

Mr. Singh brings an extensive background in international business to his new role. In addition to serving as Managing Director of Akamai India, Mr. Singh will also act as Akamai's Vice-President, Global Account Management. Mr. Singh began his career with Akamai more than six years ago, during which time he has held various positions of responsibility. While working in different roles within the Company, Mr. Singh has consistently focused on customer acquisition, retention and ensuring customer satisfaction.

“Sanjay's strong leadership skills and experience managing different cross-functional teams within Akamai make him the ideal person to manage Akamai's India operations in Bangalore,” said Paul Sagan, president and CEO of Akamai. “I am very confident in Sanjay's ability to drive productivity and to establish the India operation as a successful entity within Akamai's overall business strategy.”

On accepting his new responsibilities, Mr. Singh outlined his vision of Akamai India as the technology company best positioned to help usher in the broadband era in India and unleash the largely untapped potential of the Internet for Indian retailers, government and the media. Mr. Singh will be further charged with solidifying Akamai's leadership position in the new `Demand Economy,' the rapidly emerging market for broadband commerce, and the exchange and consumption of information, data, and entertainment.

“I am very happy to have been chosen to lead Akamai's India operations. I personally see the role of the Internet expanding to absorb new business and revenue generation models, which will prove to have far-reaching and long-lasting effects on the Indian economy. The biggest hurdle for businesses to effectively leverage the Internet has been resolution of issues related to performance, availability, reliability and security. Ensuring a consistently satisfying user experience with the utmost attention to security is something enterprises today can not ignore.”

Mr. Singh adds, “Akamai delivers a large percentage of the world's Web traffic, and roughly 85 percent of the world's Internet users are within a single 'network hop' of an Akamai server. Our global platform makes us the proven choice for customers who are looking for a fast, secure and reliable method for conducting business online.”

Worldwide, the purchasing behavior of hundreds of millions of consumers is being determined by the Internet, and this economic force still lies largely untapped in the Indian sub-continent. 

Akamai is the leading global service provider for accelerating content and business processes online.
