BAE Systems appoints Indu Anand as Head of Communications

BAE Systems India has brought on board Indu Anand as Head of Communications. She joins the company from Citigroup and replaces Guy Douglas, who is returning to the UK to take up new responsibilities at the company’s UK headquarters.

Anand, who reports jointly to Andrew Gallagher, Chief Executive and Managing Director, BAE Systems India, and John Neilson, Director of Communications, International, BAE Systems, will join the company’s India Management Board. She assumes responsibility for developing awareness of the global defence and security company’s business activities in India, which are based largely on mutually beneficial partnerships.

Commenting on the appointment, Andrew Gallagher said, “Effective communication, to a wide and varied stakeholder group, is critical to the successful build-out of BAE Systems India. Our strategic objective is to become an integral part of the India’s domestic defence and security industry and I am confident that Indu’s depth of communications experience from a range of sectors, including financial services, advertising and IT, will make a significant contribution.”

India is one of BAE Systems’ five home markets, along with Australia, Saudi Arabia, the US and the UK.

The company firmly supports the Government of India’s objective of procuring 70 per cent of defence equipment domestically. The company’s strategy focuses on serving the armed and security services as well as the local economy through the creation of high quality jobs, the development of innovative technologies and system integration skills, in partnership with India’s world class companies.

Headquartered in Delhi, BAE Systems India has partnerships with Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL), with which it has a Bangalore-based engineering services joint venture, BAeHAL, since 1993; and Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, with whom it joined hands to form Defence Land Systems India in 2009.
