He worked at Woolworths for more than 16 years, with his other roles including program manager for eBusiness and program manager for source to settle.
Girish Kotwal, regional sales executive, MessageXchange, said, “My passion is to connect businesses through message information exchange, and I look forward to using my knowledge and creativity to help customers simplify and streamline their supply chains, procurement processes, and business management. Having previously been a customer of MessageXchange, I knew that the people and culture were closely aligned with my values, which also played a part in my decision to join the team.”
Amod Gholkar was previously the eBusiness manager at Woolworths, where he spent more than 16 years in various roles including business analyst, operations manager for GS1net on-boarding and logistics analyst. He has expertise in the logistics and retail sectors, and business process improvement.

I look forward to bringing my experience and passion to bear in helping MessageXchange’s customers improve their procurement and supply processes.”
