Anurag Mehrotra, Ford India’s previous managing director, has joined Tata Motors’ commercial vehicle division. Mehrotra has been named vice president of international business and strategy for the division.
Mehrotra, who was also the president of Ford India, resigned on September 24 following a huge restructuring exercise by the American automaker, which included the shutdown of manufacturing and sales of Ford’s existing line of automobiles and a $2 billion loss.
Mehrotra spent the most of his career with Ford, where he oversaw marketing, sales, and service activities. The 30th of September was his last day at Ford. He will report to Girish Wagh, executive director and head of the Commercial Vehicle Business Unit at Tata Motors (CVBU).
