Based in New York, Parameswaran is the Group Chief Financial Officer and president of Eros International’s North America operations.

Trump also announced his intent to designate Elaine L Chao to be Co-Chair of the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, the White House said in a statement on Thursday.
