11 th November, 2019, Chennai: The Board of Directors of Ashok Leyland, at the Board Meeting last week, decided to induct Saugata Gupta as Independent Director and Vipin Sondhi as Director to its Board of Directors.
Saugata is a very well accomplished corporate leader and is currently the Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer of Marico Limited. He is credited with transforming Marico into a high performing business, responsible for driving growth and operations both in India and across international markets, with a commitment to sustainable development.
Earlier in August 2019, the Hinduja Group had announced that Vipin Sondhi is brought into its Group's leadership team, where apart from other responsibilities, Sondhi was to focus on consolidation, growth and future strategy of Hinduja Group's global automotive portfolio. He is now joining the Board of Directors at Ashok Leyland.

Vipin Sondhi will formally join the Hinduja Group later this month from JCB, where he is the MD & CEO - India, South East Asia & Pacific and a member of their Global Executive Leadership Team. He had transformed JCB's lndia portfolio to leadership position by bringing in global standards of design, quality and manufacturing.

Dheeraj Hinduja, Chairman, Ashok Leyland, said, "The induction of both Saugata and Vipin into the Board of Directors at Ashok Leyland will add significant strategic depth to the company given their rich and unique experience across the FMCG and Automotive sectors in lndia and international markets. I look forward to collaborating closely with them to help achieve Ashok Leyland's new vision to be amongst the Top 10 CV manufacturers globally.”
