Eicher Motors Ltd has appointed Rudratej ‘Rudy’ Singh as the President of Royal Enfield. He will be reporting to Siddhartha Lal, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Eicher Motors Ltd, and will be based out of the company’s corporate office in Gurgaon.

I welcome Rudy to the Royal Enfield family and look forward to working closely with him, making Royal Enfield a truly global brand,” said Lal.

Singh will be responsible for building thought leadership for the brand and leading commercial business for Royal Enfield. This will include global sales and after sales, brand and marketing, new product strategy, creating and growing new business opportunities such as apparel, accessories and other adjacencies.
