Earlier, Kishore was senior vice-president at VivaKi Exchange, where he was responsible for new businesses and alliances. Commenting on his new role, Kishore says, "Mobile has great opportunity and as it's still a fairly new medium, my role at Mogae also involves educating and evangelizing about the medium.
