Wrigley India appoints Deepak Iyer as MD

Wrigley, a subsidiary of Mars Inc, has appointed Deepak Iyer as Managing Director of its India operations, effective January 3, 2013. This appointment follows the departure of Gautam Sharma, the former Managing Director of Wrigley India, who resigned from the company to pursue a new career.

Iyer will be based in New Delhi and operate out of Wrigley India’s headquarters located in the National Capital Region. In his new role, Iyer would be responsible for developing the business strategy to drive growth across various functions and brands of Wrigley India.

Commenting on the appointment, Michael Yeung, President, Wrigley Asia Pacific, said, “India is one of the top 20 geographies of Wrigley globally and India has got a huge potential as an important growth engine to fuel the growth of our region. We are excited to have Deepak join Wrigley India. Given his extensive experience and solid track record, I am confident that our India business will achieve new heights under Deepak’s leadership.”

Iyer brings with him a wide spectrum of experience in sales, marketing and general management functions with leading global companies, in both manufacturing and corporate sectors. Before joining Wrigley, Iyer had spent 16 years in PepsiCo, where he handled a portfolio ranging from sales and general management functions. His most recent assignment with PepsiCo was in the capacity of Senior Franchise Director for Africa based in Beirut, Lebanon.

Kranti Gada joined the family business at Shemaroo in 2006 after a successful stint of over two years in marketing at Pepsi Co. She has been associated with the company for 12 years.
