Iron Mountain, which has a global client base of 220 thousand organizations and operates in 45 countries, has appointed Mr. Hitesh Gupta as its Managing Director for Iron Mountain India. In this role, Hitesh will steer Iron Mountain’s rapidly growing business in India. Hitesh joins Iron Mountain from Writer Information Management where he served as CEO for close to seven years.
Commenting on the new appointment, Ted Prittie SVP for Emerging Markets at Iron Mountain said: “Growing Iron Mountain’s presence in India underscores our commitment to deliver on Iron Mountain’s strategy of expansion through acquisition and to serve our customers locally, nationally and globally. Appointing Hitesh Gupta brings unique and invaluable experience of the Indian market to Iron Mountain that will help us deliver on our plan for aggressive growth in order to help our customers address their storage and information management challenges across the country.”
Iron Mountain, which specializes in storage and information management services, has been operating in India since 2006. Over that time, Iron Mountain has acquired record and information management companies NAX and Safehouse, and the records and tape management business of ITCL, India’s largest independent corporate trustee and fiduciary service provider. These strategic acquisitions and the recent global purchase of Recall have increased Iron Mountain’s customer base from 700 to 2,200 customers in India and doubled revenues in the past year. The company’s footprint has expanded to support more companies in more territories over the same time period, with a three-fold increase of storage space in its country-wide network of facilities from 3.9 to 12 million cubic feet.
