The new office combines the current area offices of Southeast Asia and India. By gathering its resources and expertise under one roof, WWL hopes to create better synergies and a holistic leadership leading to an improved service for its many customers.

Heading the new South Asia office will be Gur Prasad Kohli, currently Head of WWL India. Kohli was a Captain until he joined the company in 1987.
