“HubSpot is at a very exciting stage, especially here in APAC where growth is largely fuelled by SMBs. There is a huge opportunity for us to help SMBs adopt the right marketing, sales, and customer services strategies that will enable them to not only grow fast, but to grow better by adopting the inbound methodology and the HubSpot platform.
I am looking forward to working with the team in APAC and making HubSpot one of the best and most desired places to work in the region” said Shahid.
