New Delhi: Rajesh Nair has quit Tata Motors after serving the organisation for 28 years. He was heading business HR for commercial vehicles, sales and marketing, customer care and spare parts verticals.
In his stint spanning through almost three decades, Nair, who had joined as a management trainee in the international business division, has held several leadership positions that include managing Safari and Sumo brands, heading sales and service for the western region, among others.
Nair was also involved in launching the pre-owned car business for Tata Motors and has also headed the utility vehicles business before joining the human resources (HR) vertical almost a decade ago.
Nair leaves Tata Motors at a time when the Mumbai-based vehicle manufacturer has reported top-level attrition involving several executives in leadership roles. The latest to leave the organisation were Pratap Bose and Julian Thomson, where both worked in the design department. In October 2020, Sujan Roy who was heading International Business for Tata Motors, quit the organisation after 10-year long stint and thereafter joined Ashok Leyland last month. The company’s chief executive officer Guenter Butschek will move out by the end of June.
