In this expanded role, Poonian is now responsible for aligning organizational and departmental objectives with the company’s vision and mission to drive greater organizational efficiency, rapid growth, and scalability.  Under his leadership, iBase-t has grown the total number of Solumina users by more than 100 percent, and has expanded its customer base internationally into Belgium, while growing the company’s established presence in India and France.
