Sunil Dutt bids adieu to Samsung; headed to HP as VP & Country Head, PSG

After a stint of two years, Sunil Dutt Samsung India’s Country Head, Mobile Business, has bid adieu to the organisation. Dutt is currently serving his notice period and his last day at Samsung would be October 31, 2009. Confirming the development, Dutt informed that his next destination would be a newer domain with Hewlett Packard, where he is joining as Vice President and Country Head for the Personal Systems Group.

In conversation with exchange4media, Dutt said, “I’ve had an exciting two years with Samsung and it has been a very satisfying experience. Whether it was brand, distribution, revenue, profitability or consumer trust, we have achieved on all counts very successfully. I am also very content that I leave the company in very capable hands.”

He added, “However, right from the beginning, for me it has always been about exploring new opportunities and challenges. Every time, I feel I am too comfortable I seek a newer challenge, and that is the opportunity that HP presented – the opportunity to learn a lot about an industry that is new to me. HP is a leader in its domain, and a very respected brand to work with, and so I look forward to my experience ahead with them.”

Prior to Samsung, Dutt has worked in some of the most renowned corporates in India, including five and a half years with Nokia, a year with Barista, five years with Whirlpool, four and a half years with Wipro, and eight years with Philips.
