Tata Motors’ President of the Passenger Car Business Unit, Rajiv Dube, has communicated his decision to resign from the company to pursue other interests outside the Tata Group.

His request has been accepted, the company said in a press release issued here today.

With immediate effect, S. Krishnan, Senior Vice- President (Commercial), responsible for sales, marketing and customer support functions of the business, will also take charge of the Premier Car Division in addition to his current responsibilities, the release said.

Similarly, Girish Wagh, Head-Small Car Project, will take on the additional responsibility of the passenger car business’ manufacturing operations and product development activities.

Both of them will directly report to Tata Motors’ Managing Director-India Operations, P.M. Telang.

Dube has played an instrumental role in the growth of the company’s passenger car business, since the formation of the division in 1998, the release said, adding “Tata Motors acknowledges his contribution to the company, and wishes him all success in his future career.”

Dube, who joined the Tata Group in 1983, began his career in the manufacturing operations of Tata Motors at Jamshedpur. He joined the Tata Administrative Services in 1990 and was assigned to Tata Industries in 1991. He was reassigned to Tata Motors in 1998, when the passenger car division was formed.
