His background in the corporate arena includes working at Fortune 500 multinationals in the US and India. In the policy and political realm, Joshipura has managed a US Senate election campaign, worked on Capitol Hill as an adviser to US Senators and Congressmen, and been the President of an international industry association.

“I am honored that MR and the Board have placed their faith in me. It is my privilege to work for this organization, whose mission and values I truly believe in, and whose members I enjoy interacting with daily. Indiaspora has achieved a lot since its inception in 2012, and I look forward eagerly to working with and leading the team to even greater heights moving forward,” said Joshipura.
Rangaswami stated, “The Board is very pleased with Sanjeev’s performance at Indiaspora since he joined us 18 months ago. He has really helped take the organization to a new level, and we plan to continue professionalizing and institutionalizing Indiaspora with him in this leadership role.”
The Indian-American community and leading Indians have demonstrated great support for Indiaspora’s mission, events and activities. In 2017, Indiaspora instituted a membership model, in which we invite prominent Indian-American and Indian leaders in diverse professions, to become members of the organization. We have included a remarkably high caliber of individuals as members, and we plan to continue growing our membership strategically. In keeping with our growing membership, new projects, and expansion of geographic scope, we plan to recruit more staff in 2018, significantly adding to our team’s capabilities.
