Default Re: Maruti's Marketing & Sales Head Mayank Pareek resigns EDIT: Joins Tata Motors

The work culture at Maruti & Tata is also poles apart. Maruti is tight, professional and fast. There are politics, but not to the level in Tata.

Then, it's a question of how important the company is to its parent. Maruti is Suzuki's crown jewel & India the only country where Suzuki dominates in this manner. For Tata Motors, the Indian passenger car division is the smallest (after commercial vehicles & JLR).

Lastly, Pareek might be a sales & marketing genius. An effective CEO needs to be more than that. Pareek hasn't proven himself in areas outside of sales.
Dear Rush

Some really good observations there though would debate on the opening statement of Schumi.

We have a marketing genius who has spearheaded the largest four wheeler company in India for over 20 years.

MSIL is what it is and the credit to a large extent is for Mr. Pareek.

Tata will gain from his experience and technical knowledge but I am of the opinion that a 5 year time frame is all it will take to steer it out of the rut.

Tata is starting as a "new" company. Zest and Bolt may turn around fortunes.
Also, they have the new Aria coming up.

Political scenario within the Tata Group is, like you correctly said poles apart from MSIL. Yet, even that scenario is changing.

Mr. Pareek will sit atop in the corporate ladder and will be part of the senior most cadre of executives and a board member within TML.

Petty politics may not really touch him in delivering. He is a task master and TML should benefit from that.

This is a home bred company and hence external interference will be limited and Mr. Pareek should have a say in many a things.

Overall, I feel "Tata ke achche Din aa gaye hain"
