Two-wheeler major Hero Honda has created two new senior positions to lead the strategic growth initiatives of the company. Atul Sobti, Senior VP-Marketing & Sales, has been promoted as Executive Director-Business Operations, and KK Agrawal, Senior VP, Operations, is the new Executive Director-Manufacturing and Logistics.
Pawan Munjal, Managing Director, says, by creating two new positions in the senior strata, the company will be able to effectively leverage on cross-functional integration. “Given the consistent performance of the company, both Sobti and Agarwal deserved appropriate recognition,” he adds.
Sobti, who joined Hero Honda in 1998 as Senior VP-Marketing & Sales, will now be responsible for various functions like sales, marketing, finance and HR. Agrawal, on the other hand, will now take charge of manufacturing, materials and quality management. He joined the company in 1993 as General Manager-Operations.
