Geometric has grown significantly in the last couple of years, with a marked increase in its global employee base, said Ravi Gopinath, MD and CEO who announced the appointments today.

Desai, who has 24 years of experience in the HR field said Geometric functions in a knowledge economy where human capital forms the backbone of all activities. Maintaining a leadership position in a niche area as PLM requires a high degree of technical competence, and intellect amongst employees.
