Logically continues international expansion with executive hire for India

Logically continues international expansion with executive hire for India

Logically has appointed Sagar Kaul as VP of India Operations. Mr. Kaul brings extensive experience in operations and business development to the Logically management team.

The hire signals the company’s rapid growth, and is the latest step in its strategy to help governments, social media platforms and consumers in India and Asia debunk harmful misinformation and deliberate disinformation through a combination of artificial and human intelligence.

Kaul brings nearly 16 years of experience in business development, operations, editorial and expertise in the area of disinformation, fact checking and threat analysis. He will be central to the company’s growth plans in India as well as helping the company’s expansion into other Asian markets. He joins Logically after four years of leading an India-based company, Metafact, that worked to build and disseminate an AI tool for tackling misinformation within the country. Kaul has a strong understanding of the Asian landscape and will bring that expertise with him in leading Logically’s strategic plans for the region. 

Logically has been steadily building its operations in India since 2017 where the company has tripled in size in the last two years. In addition to its two offices in Karnataka, the company worked on the 2019 Lok Sabha general elections in which the company analysed nearly one million articles and identified both state and non-state actors who were trying to influence the election outcomes through disinformation campaigns. More recently it has also been supporting government authorities to surface and debunk misinformation related to Covid-19. In 2020, Logically won recognition by the Government of India in the AatmaNirbhar Bharat App Innovation Challenge for the most innovative news app in India.

Founder and CEO of Logically, Lyric Jain, comments:

“It’s an important time for Logically as we continue to grow quickly and the need for our services is ever greater. Sagar will play an essential role driving the business forward and expanding our operations and capabilities ahead of important events such as the Indian State Assembly elections next spring, and protecting the rollout of any future Covid vaccination campaign against anti-vax actors. Sagar’s mix of sector and commercial experience makes him a strong asset for Logically, and I very much look forward to working with him."

 

VP of India Operations, Sagar Kaul, comments:

“Lyric has successfully identified and created a solution through Logically to address one of the biggest threats of our times to our democracy, security and businesses globally, and has paved the way for using AI to mitigate this problem. I believe in the vision he has for the company and will work towards establishing its presence in India with further expansion plans into Asia.”
