In an effort to strengthen global presence and focus on targeted growth segments, OmniActive Health Technologies has moved its global sales and marketing headquarters from Mumbai, India, to Morristown, N.J., relocated key executive team members to North America, and hired a new vice president of global marketing.
Abhijit Bhattacharya, president of OmniActive Health Technologies, has relocated to the Morristown office, where he will lead the global business, and drive focus on market innovation and growth. Hiren Doshi, head of OmniActive (U.S.) and vice president, will continue to lead the U.S. operations and take responsibility for worldwide sales development. Chief Technology Officer Jayant Deshpande, Ph.D., will now be located at OmniActive’s International Research and Development Center, which opened March 2012 in Prince Edward Island, Canada. Dr. Deshpande will continue to lead OmnIActive’s global R&D teams to significantly expand OmniActive’s product portfolio.

Lynda’s creative marketing and business development leadership is a welcome addition to our executive team,” stated Hiren Doshi, vice president, OmniActive Health Technologies.
