Luxury car maker BMW Group India on Saturday said it has appointed Vikram Pawah as the President effective August 1, along with his present role as Chief Executive Officer of BMW Group Australia and New Zealand.

In April, the sudden demise of Rudratej Singh, President and Chief Executive Officer, created an unprecedented situation at BMW Group India. Since then, Arlindo Teixeira, Chief Financial Officer has been carrying out the role as acting President, the company said in a statement.

Pawah has been with the BMW Group since 2017 when he joined BMW Group India as the President. In 2018, he was appointed the Chief Executive Officer of BMW Group Australia and New Zealand where he has successfully steered BMW into a position of strength in the luxury car segment, it said.

"Under the leadership of Vikram Pawah, BMW Group has successfully stood ground in a fiercely competitive environment and gained significant momentum in both Indian and Australian luxury car markets. As a priority market, India presents tremendous potential for future growth and development of the luxury automotive segment," Hendrik von Kuenheim, Senior Vice President, Region Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe, West Asia and Africa, BMW Group said.
