Nissan India appoints Deepa Thomas as Vice President, Communications & CSR

Motor India Private Ltd. (NMIPL) announced the appointment of Deepa Thomas as vice president, Communications and CSR, effective immediately. Thomas will have responsibility for all of Nissan’s communications in India including product and corporate matters, and CSR activities, as the company continues to strengthen its business operations towards further growth in India.

Thomas will report to Guillaume Sicard, President, Nissan India Operations. She will initially be located in Mumbai and will move with the company to its new head offices in Delhi once operations begin there later this year. Thomas succeeds Dr. Lavanya Wadgaonkar, who will move to a new position within Nissan; this will be the subject of a separate announcement at a later date.

Sicard said, “We are delighted to have Deepa on board at Nissan. She brings a proven track record of success and her deep experience in India and abroad will help us continue to spread the word about our innovative and exciting cars, and move our business forward. India is an important engine of growth in the region and for Nissan globally, and Deepa’s leadership will help us tell the Nissan and Datsunstory to more and more customers. I would like to thank Lavanya for her excellent contribution to Nissan journey in India and wish her success in her new leadership role.”

Thomas has over 19 years of communications experience and knowledge gained in external and employee communications. Before joining Nissan, she led the communications function for several Mahindra Group companies as general manager, Group Communications. Prior to that, she spent 10 years with eBay India in a series of communications roles with increasing level of responsibility. Her career has also included positions with firms in the global skincare industry and on the agency side.
