Volvo Auto India has announced the appointment of Tom von Bonsdorff as Managing Director. von Bonsdorff, who has been with Volvo for 17 years, held operational and managerial positions in the US, Sweden and Finland before this appointment. He is no stranger to Delhi having been based here earlier as Market Area Director, Asia. The incumbent, Tomas Ernberg, moves to Sweden in a new role.
von Bonsdorff is quite excited too. "India is one of the fastest growing markets for Volvo. An array of recent launches - XC90, V40 Cross Country Petrol - including the soon-to-be-launched V40 and S60 T6 Petrol will add a positive thrust to the brand presence in India. I look forward to further strengthening Volvo car's presence here."
Swedish luxury company Volvo Auto India (VAI) established its presence in India in 2007. It currently markets products through its dealerships in Tier I and Tier II cities like New Delhi, Gurgaon, Ahmedabad, Surat, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore, Kochi, Visakhapatnam and Pune.
