The Board of Antara Senior Living announced the appointment of Rajit Mehta as Managing Director & CEO of Antara Senior Living.

Mehta was the MD & CEO of Max Healthcare till recently. He will also take on a Group level position overseeing Max India’s New Growth Initiatives as well as Max Group’s Human Capital function as an Advisor.

Antara’s Board also approved the ascension of Tara Singh Vachani, the Company’s current executive leader and MD, to the position of Executive Chairman.

As MD & CEO of Antara Senior Living, Mehta will spearhead Antara 2.0 - a rejuvenation strategy, which aims to take the organization to a new scale of growth and operations. In this role, he will report to Tara, who has passionately nurtured Antara since it was just a nascent idea, into India’s premier senior living organization today with a mindful culture and a highly talented team.

His primary focus will be on Antara’s operations and future growth. Additionally, given his diverse professional experience, Mehta will provide leadership and oversight to new business initiatives and Organizational & Human Capital matters across the Max Group. For his Group responsibilities he will be reporting to Analjit Singh, Founder & Chairman, Max Group and Mohit Talwar, Vice Chairman, Max Group.

P Dwarakanath, a widely respected professional, who has been leading the Group’s Human Capital function since the last 12 years, has expressed his desire to demit office in Dec 2019 and will gradually transition his responsibilities to Mehta.

Mehta will continue on the Boards of Max Life and Max Skill First as a Non-executive Director and will be a special invitee to the Max India Board.

This new work portfolio marks yet another reinvention for Mehta, who has worn several hats during his time as a Max Leader. He was a founder member of Max Life and was instrumental in helping the company become an admired, profitable and well-run organization. During his tenure at Max Life, he excelled in several roles from Executive Director, Human Resources to Chief Operating Officer and took on additional responsibilities as the Chief Transformation Officer providing oversight to an aspirational change agenda which resulted in significant revamp of the operating model and enhanced value creation.
