Arvind will lead all aspects of the company’s information security strategy, architecture, operations and governance. He will also be responsible for continuing to drive industry best practices for security compliance to support and enhance Mitel’s wider business objectives and the needs of its customers and partners.
Arvind joins Mitel with more than two decades of experience within the financial services, retail and product development industries.

Arvind’s extensive experience working with global organisations to architect advanced security and compliance models will deepen Mitel’s continued commitment to risk management and cybersecurity best practices and enable us to further strengthen the relationships we have with our partners and customers.”
Arvind added, “it’s an exciting time for the communications and collaboration industry as organisations continue to adapt to a ‘work from anywhere’ environment and accelerate their adoption of cloud technologies. Mitel has established itself as a long-time leader in digital transformation. Together with the team, I am excited to continue delivering and supporting best-in-class communications solutions that our customers can trust to not only help them stay connected but that provide peace of mind when it comes to ensuring security and mitigating risk.”
