Andrey Purushottam joins Mahindra & Mahindra

Andrey Purushottam has finally decided on his next destination – the former Managing Director of Starcom is moving across the desk, joining the client’s side this time.

Reporting directly to Anand Mahindra, MD and Vice Chairman, Mahindra and Mahindra, Purushottam joins the organisation as Vice President – Business Development. He had quit his responsibilities at Starcom in early 2003.

Purushottam’s new role is necessarily corporate in nature. His responsibilities aren’t limited to a particular sector that Mahindra and Mahindra is currently present or will make its presence in the future but spans across. Throwing some light on his duties, Purushottam says, “I will be working on any initiative which involves existing businesses or developing new businesses for Mahindra and Mahindra.”

Speaking on why he joined the corporate, he explains, “One reason is the company itself. Mahindra and Mahindra, as a group, has huge ambitions and the wherewithal to achieve it. It values professionals and has successfully attracted quality talent. Most importantly, it lays emphasis on ethics that permeates through the organisation. The second reason is Anand Mahindra himself. In my meetings with him, he came across as a bright, articulate and an extremely dynamic person who allows his resources the freedom to operate.”

He explains that there were various opportunities that came his way but he was looking at something that was durable in the longer run and Mahindra and Mahindra fit the bill. As for how does he feel? “I am very excited,” smiles Purushottam.
