Maruti Suzuki has recently announced that Randhir S Kalsi will take over as head of domestic marketing & sales, supplanting Mayank Pareek who quit now. Currently, Kalsi official executive heading the parts, extras and outbound logistics arms, will show up for MD & CEO, Kenichi Ayukawa.
Shashank Srivastava will stay executive director and head of international marketing, and report to MD.
“RS Kalsi has served as our national sales head, before which he had led the company’s foray into a bouquet of businesses including Maruti Finance and Maruti True Value. Starting out as an engineer on the Maruti shop floor, Kalsi has performed multiple roles across the spectrum. Having worked in close partnership with the company’s domestic dealer network, Kalsi has a sound understanding of customer needs and preferences,” said Ayukawa.
“With Kalsi heading our domestic marketing and sales efforts, and Shashank spearheading our international operations, we will be in a very good position to strengthen our bond with customers as we move towards our medium term goal of two million annual vehicles sales,” he added.
Kalsi, a mechanical engineer from the Delhi College of Engineering, joined the organization in 1984. He served in different parts, including seller advancement, production network, parts examination and building, before leading the organization's invasion into Maruti True Value, Maruti Insurance, Maruti Driving Schools and Maruti Finance in 2002.
