Chevrolet India has announced the appointment of Kaher Kazem, chief operating officer (COO) of GM India, as the new president and managing director of the company, effective January 1, 2016. Kazem will succeed Arvind Saxena, who has decided to retire from GM, after leading GM India since early 2014.

With Kaher’s hands-on experience and direct knowledge of the business, we are pleased to appoint him to lead GM India at this important time,” said GM Executive Vice President and GM International President Stefan Jacoby. “GM is committed to India for the long term. Kaher’s proven track record will enable us to deliver to Indian consumers the great vehicles they want and the world-class customer experience they deserve.” Just so you know, the American automaker is all set to launch the Spin MPV in 2016 in India.

“I want to thank Arvind, who has helped lay the foundation for the future success of GM India,” said Jacoby. “We look forward to a smooth transition to ensure the continued execution of our business transformation.” Kazem joined GM Holden in Australia in 1995 as a senior engineer. He later held several leadership positions at GM Holden Manufacturing Operations. In 2009, he was appointed vice president of Manufacturing and Quality for GM Thailand/ASEAN. Prior to taking on his current position earlier this year, where he has managed the industrial side of the business, Kazem was president and managing director of GM Uzbekistan from 2012.
