The company has made three new senior appointments to lead its marketing, talent acquisition and legal functions.

Upali Dasgupta steps into the role of marketing director to build out Meltwater's marketing function, manage its strategic brand direction and drive business growth via integrated marketing programs. She brings over 18 years of rich experience, spanning a range of roles at leading technology brands across Asia-Pacific, including Hootsuite, LinkedIn and Sitecore.

Alissa Sargeant has been appointed as the head of talent acquisition, with over a decade of experience in HR roles at companies including Thermo Fisher Scientific and NCR Corporation. She will lead Meltwater's efforts to ramp up talent recruitment across the region, powering up the business for a new phase of growth through exciting new initiatives.

Rounding out the new hires is Anthony Herman, who joins the team as head of legal, bringing nearly two decades worth of experience in technology and commercial law at companies like SAP and ClickSoftware.

Dasgupta will be based out of Meltwater's APAC headquarters in Singapore, while Sargeant and Herman are based in Sydney and Melbourne, respectively.

The new hires come amidst a period of strong growth for the company, following a series of key acquisitions and client wins in the past year.

"Over the past few years we've seen exponential growth within the APAC region, and these senior appointments will play a strategic role as Meltwater navigates its next phase of growth," Meltwater APAC executive director David Hickey says.

"We are excited to be expanding our capabilities, and will continue to offer high-quality, bespoke and integrated solutions catered to localised needs for our current and prospective clients."
