INDIA: Bata India Hires New Execs
Indian footwear manufacturer Bata India Limited, part of the Canadian Bata Organisation, has hired four expatriates from Toronto to try to boost sales and profitability.
The new team will be headed by managing director C Morzaria and will look at reversing the company's declining sales, which it blames on sluggish demand in the market.
The company hired Harnan Ordonez to focus on rejuvenating its wholesale business which has suffered through the company allowing traders to have unlimited credit facility due to the difficult conditions within the market.
Tony Van Es will look to ensure that a high standard of product quality is maintained.
