Nikhil Gandhi, TikTok's head in Middle East, Turkey, Africa (META), and South Asia, has quit.
"After much reflection on my time here at ByteDance, and looking at my future goals, I have made the difficult decision to leave my role in the company. Working with TikTok, I have seen our app shepherd in a new era of connection, communication, and cultural appreciation,” said Gandhi in an official statement.
Sources have confirmed that Daniel Habashi will expand his role from TikTok GM of Canada to now also serve as interim TikTok GM of META (Middle East, Turkey, and Africa) and South Asia.
With over two decades of experience, Gandhi has worked at organisations like Times Network, The Walt Disney Company, UTV, and Viacom 18.
