NEW DELHI: PC maker Lenovo India has appointed Rahul Agarwal as the Managing Director for the company, effective June 29, 2015.


Agarwal takes over from Amar Babu, who will now take on a regional mandate as COO, Lenovo, Asia Pacific and Chairman, Lenovo India, a release said.

He takes charge at a time, when Lenovo is gearing up for its next phase of growth, diversifying beyond PCs into the smart connected devices while maintaining a strong PC focus. The company is transforming into a global consumer technology brand differentiating itself on innovation and design and India plays a key role in this transformation and therefore, is an extremely critical market for the company.

"Rahul’s wealth of experience has been instrumental in driving Lenovo’s growth and making him the natural choice to take over from Amar Babu,” said Roderick Lappin, President, Asia Pacific, Lenovo. “India, under the stewardship of Amar as India head and Rahul as the head of commercial business, has seen phenomenal growth over the last few years. This growth has not only made our business stronger here, but has also contributed to our global success. As the brand takes on bigger challenges in India and globally, we look forward to Amar and Rahul to play a decisive role in our future successes.”

Agarwal, over the last three years, has led the Commercial Business successfully. During the last 10 years at Lenovo, he managed many roles in sales and marketing and has contributed significantly in growing the brand in the country.
