The Rs 30,000-crore Murugappa Group on Monday announced the appointment of vice-chairman M M Murugappan as executive chairman. He succeeds A Vellayan, who retired as executive chairman at the age of 65.

Murugappan has been serving as the group’s vice-chairman since November 2009, spearheading technology, innovation and environment, health & safety (EHS) initiatives across the Group, a company statement said.
