Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM), today announced the realignment of its regional offices as three new Strategic Business Units (SBU) to bolster its sales and service functions with all the resources to execute its goals. This update comes following TKM's announcement on December 10, 2019 of its senior leadership changes for the year 2020.

The company says based on the principle of increased organisational agility to enable quick decision making, the idea behind the revamped structure is not only to focus on ROI (Return on Investment) and KPI (Key Performance Indicator) based competitiveness but also ensure sustainable growth.

Apart from the changes made in the senior leadership management team, TKM is realigning its regional office organisation structure to get closer to the marketplace and its customers. Based on the same, TKM has announced three SBU heads —Atul Sood, associate VP - North & East SBU; R  Venkatakrishnan, VP - South SBU and Institutional Sales and B Padmanabha, VP - West SBU. The three zonal SBUs will further be supported by Group SBUs and State SBUs. With this, Toyota Kirloskar Motor aims to further strengthen the objectivity and agility of the regional management team.

Commenting on the new regional structure, Naveen Soni, senior VP - Sales and Customer Service, Toyota Kirloskar Motor said: “In our efforts to achieve sustainable growth and organisational agility, we are excited to announce the formation of three new SBUs which will not only focus on the company’s ROI and KPI based competitiveness, but also focus on the sustainable growth of the company."

"Moreover, these SBUs will ensure that our regional teams headed by the three Vice-Presidents, help us come closer to the markets and our customers and partners alike. This structure will not only enrich and empower our sales team but will also provide us with the resources to execute our goals. I am certain that our new team with their passionate leadership and strategic vision will steer the company to greater avenues,” concluded Soni.
