Bangalore-headquartered electric vehicle maker, Ather Energy has announced new addition to its senior leadership team with Deepak Jain joining the company as its chief financial officer (CFO).

Ather Energy says Jain brings over 20 years of experience across global brands like First Advantage, Apple India, P&G and Gillette. Before joining Ather, Jain had a five year stint at First Advantage as CFO for their India Business.

In his tenure Jain has plenty of exposure to large multi-location and transnational revenues. He began his career at E&Y before moving on to Gillette and Procter & Gamble, where he took on leadership roles in distribution modeling and sales finance. In 2010, he joined Apple India as the CFO and led the finance team during a period of exponential growth for five years. Ather says Jain specialises in conceptualising, leading and executing business expansion strategies in manufacturing, trading and services business environments, and he will play a key role in the company's aggressive expansion plans.

Commenting on the appointment Tarun Mehta, co-founder and CEO, Ather Energy said: "In his prior roles, Deepak has scaled up technology and product led companies making him an ideal addition to Ather’s team.  For a rapidly expanding company like Ather, an important focus area is laying the structure for effective processes. We are scaling up to meet the demand for the Ather 450 across the country and this requires robust systems and operations. Deepak’s experience in leading teams and integrating manufacturing and business processes will play a key role in the next part of our story."

Deepak Jain, CFO, Ather Energy: "Working with Ather is a rare opportunity to work on cutting edge technology and building products that are setting the bar in the two-wheeler category. Tarun and Swapnil’s vision for electric vehicles and automobiles will serve as a lighthouse for the industry. I look forward to working with the team as we enter new markets and increase our footprint across India."
