The German vehicle manufacturer, BMW, ha appointed Vikram Pawah as the new Chief Executive Officer of its Australia and New Zealand unit.
Pawah will take the position from 1 August, leaving his role as the Head of operations in India.
As well as his new CEO position, Pawah has also been appointed as the firm’s Chairman of BMW Group India.
