Boeing has named Pratyush Kumar as president of Boeing India.
He joins Boeing with significant business leadership experience and insight into the Indian market, having served in senior executive positions at GE Transportation since 2003.
Kumar succeeds Dinesh Keskar, who earlier this year returned to Boeing Commercial Airplanes in a senior Sales leadership role.
As the company’s senior in-country leader, Kumar is responsible for leading the development and implementation of the Boeing India strategy.
He will coordinate business activities; align priorities; expand the Boeing presence; and develop, maintain and enhance local relationships and in-country partnerships with India’s business and government stakeholders.
“Kumar has a distinguished business career and brings considerable experience and success in the Indian market to Boeing,” said Shep Hill, president of Boeing International and senior vice president of business development and strategy.
“He will focus on growing our business and will build on Dinesh Keskar’s outstanding accomplishments as president of Boeing India.”
Kumar was Delhi-based president and chief executive, GE Transportation for south Asia.
