Panasonic India elevates Manish Sharma as MD

Manish Sharma has been elevated as Managing Director of Panasonic India. He has also been appointed to the Board of Directors of the company.

In his new role, Sharma will be responsible for the strategic planning, business development and sales & marketing functions of Panasonic India across consumer and enterprise business, which caters to the B2B, B2G, and IT segments focusing on system solutions and industrial devices.

Sharma had joined Panasonic in August 2008 as Product Head for the Viera range of flat panel televisions and subsequently took charge as Director of Marketing in April 2010 and became the Managing Director of Consumer Product Division for the company in March 2012.

An official release quoted Sharma as saying, “I am very happy to take on the additional responsibility in the company. At Panasonic, the business-to-business segment accounts for close to 70 per cent of the company’s global revenue. We are sure that a strong and diverse market like India will present immense opportunities for the growth of Panasonic in this segment as well. Despite the consumer durables segment being challenging, Panasonic has successfully made inroads into almost each household in India; the business segment will be an opportunity for me to create a win-win proposition for both, brand Panasonic and the Indian enterprises.”

Sharma has 18 years of experience in industry knowledge and a strong grounding in all aspects of marketing, sales, business development, product support and customer service. He has worked on an extensive portfolio of electronic majors such as LG Hotline, Samsung India and Haier India. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering and is an MBA in Marketing.
