Regional Director, India
Acquia, Inc.

Jacob is the country head for Acquia India where he manages all alliances, business development and services in the region. He is an experienced trainer, project manager, developer and scrum-master with 14 years of experience building great web experiences, seven with Drupal.

One of the early Acquians(2008), Jacob holds the distinction of working in the most departments. He has been an integral part of the Acquia Search and Drupal Gardens products, a recognized Drupal trainer and consultant and a solution architect.

Outside of work he tries to stay fit, drink beer (to counteract the exercise), go bowling, dance and play a bit of guitar and basketball. But mostly, he just plays with his three year old daughter Zoya (a.k.a the girl with the big blue eyes).
