Tata Motors have announced the appointment of Mr Ranjit Yadav as president of Tata Motor's Passenger Car Business Unit (PCBU) and Mr Neeraj Garg as the new vice president, Commercial for PCBU.

Back in July, we had reported that some of the top officials from Volkswagen India had called it quits due to diving car sales, including Mr Neeraj Garg - the then director of VW's passenger cars division who was solely responsibly for the company's six car brands in India. Prior to working for Volkswagen, Mr Garg worked with Nissan Motor India Pvt Ltd and Honda Siel Cars India Ltd.
Mr. R Ramakrishnan has been with Tata Motors since he joined as a Graduate Engineer Trainee in 1985.
Commenting on the appointments, the managing director of Tata Motors, Mr Karl Slym said, “Mr Ranjit Yadav’s experience of leading a highly customer-centric business will bring in the outside-in perspective that we need to further evolve our Passenger Vehicles business. Mr Neeraj Garg brings in significant domain understanding of the Indian car space and its competitive dynamics. We are happy that they will spearhead our aggressive plans in the high-potential market that India is. We are also happy to have Mr Ramakrishnan’s extensive commercial vehicles experience back for our CV business to retain our traditional market dominance.”
