The newly-formed Stellantis India recently restructured its brands' leadership in India, with Nipun J. Mahajan taking over as Jeep's brand head and Saurav Vatsa as head of Citroen.
Mahajan has been serving as the vice president of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles since September 2016.
Before this, he worked as the sales director with Harley-Davidson Motor Company for almost three years. Previously, he has also worked for Porsche India, Volkswagen, and Honda Cars India.
Vatsa has been associated with the company since 2018. He recently updated his designation on the social media network LinkedIn. Earlier he served as the chief marketing officer and director, CX (customer experience), research, media buying and product planning - India Operations for Citroen.
After the merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Groupe PSA, the company has merged the operations of both the erstwhile carmakers in India.
The latest move follows the recent global restructuring in the European company.
Earlier in April, the company appointed Roland Bouchara as chief executive officer and managing director for India operations with full responsibility for the Jeep and Citroën national sales companies (NSCs), coupled with the Group's manufacturing operations.
Since 2017, Bouchara had been leading the Citroën India operations as the senior vice president of sales and marketing for the brand, the company said in a release. This included end-to-end execution of the recent launch of the Citroën brand and its first product in India - the new Citroën C5 Aircross.
Prior to joining Groupe PSA in 2017, Bouchara held several key leadership positions at Renault including, managing director UK, head of Europe NSCs (Germany, UK, Spain and Italy), and SVP - sales and marketing for Asia Pacific and China.
Additionally, Partha Dutta, president and managing director, FCA India Automobiles, had assumed responsibility as Engineering, Design, R&D operations across the India and Asia Pacific region.
Since 2019, Datta has been leading FCA India and successfully launched the new Jeep Compass and locally-assembled Jeep Wrangler, the company added. He has been associated with the FCA for more than 22 years. He joined as an Aerothermal Engineer in 1999.
During his tenure at FCA, Partha was also the Director of Technical Centres in Chennai and Pune, as well as the Head of Product Engineering in China.
