As part of the ‘India 2.0’
project, the Volkswagen Group plans to sustainably strengthen its position in
the Indian market. The Volkswagen Group in India is restructuring its
management as a result of which Gurpratap Boparai, currently Managing Director
of Skoda Auto India Private Ltd., will also become Managing Director of the
Volkswagen India Private Limited (VWIPL) with effect from 1 January 2019.
In the future, all Group
brands will continue their operations under the leadership of Boparai with a
common strategy in the Indian market. The restructuring of the Volkswagen Group
companies in India is planned for next year, subject to regulatory approvals.
The Volkswagen Group is
placing the responsibility for implementing the ‘India 2.0’ project in the
hands of the newly formed management team. The aim of this measure is to make
more efficient use of existing synergies and to establish more agile
coordination processes so that decisions can be made more quickly and flexibly.
Pavel Richter, Technical
Director of Production in the ‘India 2.0’ project will lead production
responsibilities for the Group in India. As part of the restructuring Dr.
Andreas Lauermann will be moving to the Volkswagen Group by end of the year to
take on new responsibilities.
