Sumit Sawhney, who took over as the CEO and managing director of Renault India recently, joined the company when the automotive industry was going through a downturn. He motivated the team to establish Renault brand among the top 10 automotive brands in India within three years of its operations. With his focus on out-of-the-box thinking, he has been managing the company’s marketing and sales strategies and has brought new dimensions to innovatively project the Renault brand in India. Under his leadership, Renault India has consistently set new benchmarks and has been able to establish itself as a well-respected brand in the country.

Sawhney joined Renault in India as its executive director in September 2012 from General Motors. With an experience of 20 years in the Indian automotive industry, he was also part of a major transition at the US car company, which saw sales surge in India.

Sawhney has been credited with establishing the Renault brand in India and setting the company on a growth trajectory. During his tenure, Renault Duster has become one of the top selling SUVs in the country.
