Jain is an expert in automotive, engineering, logistics, and various process industries, including cement, steel, chemicals, power, and other building materials.

Commenting on the transition, BCG’s CEO Christoph Schweizer said, “I am confident the new leadership will continue to drive BCG India’s stellar growth in the years ahead. The Indian system is one of our leading systems and one of which BCG is very proud globally.
We all believe that in this decade and beyond, India will play a consequential role on the world stage, and BCG is committed to bringing our cutting-edge research and ideas to support ambitious Indian companies to take advantage of the megatrends shaping the world.”
