Based in Mumbai, he began his 17 year career as a software engineer and then moved into a technical support role before his move into sales. Harshad has spent the last 11 years specifically working for software companies in the photo industry.
Says Ghude “I have been very aware of Taopix for many years and always regarded them as one of leading suppliers in the photo industry. After a conversation with Taopix CEO, James Gray, I was introduced to Commercial Director, Steffen Haaga. I was looking for a new challenge and Steffen was also looking for an experienced Business Development Manager for parts of Asia and Australasia. My location and expertise were instrumental in Steffen offering me the role.”
“Since joining Taopix, I’ve been impressed with their professional and very structured approach to business and their impressive, successful network of direct and indirect channels. I feel very much at home here and am really enjoying learning more about the platform and the team.”

Print service providers, pro labs and photo gift retailers across my territories ought to take the time to take a closer look at Taopix if they’re serious about growing their personalised photo businesses or considering entering this lucrative market. I’m convinced that with the growth of 4G networks and improved internet speeds across my region, the opportunity to sell high margin photo products on any device has never been greater.”
