In what is immensely shocking news, Rudratej Singh, President and Chief Executive Officer of BMW Group India, passed away today. Aged 46, Singh had taken charge at BMW Group India on August 1, 2019.
This is the second untimely demise of a high-ranking executive at the company in a month. On April 7, BMW Group India's Sales Director Mihir Dayal (40) had passed away after a battle with cancer.
Before joining BMW India, Rudratej 'Rudy' Singh was the Global President at Chennai-based Royal Enfield. He had over 25 years of experience and held multiple leadership positions both in the automotive and non-automotive industries. Prior to his stint at Royal Enfield, he had worked with Unilever in India and international markets for over 16 years. Singh graduated from Delhi University and had an MBA degree in Marketing and Finance from the Institute of Management Technology, Ghaziabad.
