Magma Design Automation, a provider of chip design software, has appointed Alok Mehrotra as MD of the company’s India operations.

Most recently Mehrotra served as director of sales for synthesis platform developer Synfora.
"Managing our presence in India is a complex task, one that requires focus on both the indigenous engineering community and on supporting multinational customers with key installations here," said Rajeev Madhavan, Magma’s chairman and CEO. "Alok’s background makes him well suited to this role - he has many years managing sales and support in India and elsewhere around the world, and he has the experience to work with our employees in India to continue the work that has contributed significantly to Magma’s success."
