Putting all speculations to rest, Girish Bapat, Vice-President, Sales and Marketing (South and West), LG, has put in his papers. The industry had been abuzz with rumours of Bapat quitting LG for quite some time.

Bapat, who was inducted by the Korean major as VP, Marketing, last year, was promoted as VP, Sales and Marketing, South and West, in March this year. At the time of quitting the company, Bapat was handling the Southern and Western markets and was based in Pune.

Commenting on his stint with LG, Bapat said, “It was an excellent experience. I will cherish the phenomenal exposure that I got there.”

Bapat had joined LG in August 2005. Prior to that he was with Mahindra and Mahindra, where he was heading the marketing division looking after the international business (Europe, Middle East) and had spent around seven years there. He began his career with Godrej, where he spent nearly 11 years.

Meanwhile, LG has seen some top-level exits in the last few months, starting with Salil Kapoor (Head of Marketing Services and Brand). Recently, Deba Ghoshal, Head, Product Marketing (DDM), had also quit the company.
