Multinational Extends its Presence into India
Halma has appointed Kuniyur Srinivasan as Managing Director of its new India Hub in Mumbai. Kuniyur has extensive experience of starting up and growing businesses in India and also of selling high quality foreign products into the Indian market. He will play a pivotal role in establishing Halma and its subsidiary companies in India.
Kuniyur, 43, joins Halma from Satisloh AG, an optical machinery manufacturing company, where he served for six years as Country Head, with responsibility for all business aspects in India and the Middle East. He previously held a number of senior sales positions in the industrial products business of a large Indian industrial group, most recently serving as Head of International Business. As well as having a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Kuniyur has a postgraduate degree in Foreign Trade from the Directorate General of Foreign Trade.
The new India hub is part of an expansion by Halma into the fast growing economies of Asia. The company recently opened hubs in Beijing and Shanghai, and the Mumbai hub is a continuation of this process. It will initially provide administrative, accounting, legal and business development services to Halma’s subsidiaries, eventually expanding to offer other services such as sales and marketing. Another important role is the provision of R&D and software development assistance to subsidiary companies, taking advantage of India’s highly educated workforce.
