    Anand Timothy Co-Founder and Director: Sales

    Anand is one of the co-founders of eNyota Learning, handling Business Development and Marketing. He has helped grow the company from a 5-people team in 2007 to an 150-people team in 2016. Responsible for new client acquisition, working with existing clients to expand business opportunities, and the overall marketing function, he has helped set up and grow our client base in the US, UK, Europe, and Australia. With a unique background in both sales and project delivery, he is able to connect customer needs to sensible and sustainable solutions rather than simply focusing on sales. In addition to his sales and marketing responsibilities, he also oversees the technology side of the business and R&D teams at eNyota.

    Anand has over 18 years of experience in developing and delivering digital solutions to customers. Early in his career, he was a Production Manager, leading a team at a large eBook publishing company called Versaware. He started his career in eLearning in 2001 in sales in Maximize Learning (now acquired by Aptara Corp.) and Brainvisa Technologies (now acquired by Indecomm Global). He has held positions in Sales, Project Management, and Account Management before starting eNyota Learning. He has worked with training organizations of Fortune 500 companies to delivery eLearning solutions.

    The work mantra that resonates with Anand the most is one borrowed from the late Steve Jobs. Steve said, “That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

    Anand strongly believes in the days of companies diversifying without having specialist knowledge in a particular domain and designing complex solutions are numbered. The companies that are able to focus on solving specific problems and can offer options that are simpler than existing solutions will eventually succeed. Simple solutions that can solve problems for many more people will be the next wave to replace legacy systems.

    Outside of work, Anand is an avid football (soccer) fan. He ‘very passionately’ (as he calls it) follows the English Premier League and his favorite team – Arsenal!
