Hero MotoCorp has appointed industry veteran Arun Jaura as the chief technology officer. Jaura will lead Hero MotoCorp's extensive Research and Development (R&D).
Jaura was the managing director of Michelin India Technology Center since 2017, where he managed the R&D and the sustainability functions, and also represented the Michelin Pune site of more than 1,100 engineers and technologists.
He started his career with DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) in 1982 and then moved to Canada in 1992 to pursue a PhD focused on robotics and artificial intelligence for smart manufacturing. In 1996, he joined Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, USA. He also led and developed the world’s first ever hydrogen-hybrid vehicle, working in partnership with the Department of Energy in the US.
Vikram Kasbekar, who has been leading the R&D function at Hero MotoCorp over the past two and half years, will support Jaura for a seamless transition and continue to work on some key assignments over the coming months.
