Mr Umang Vohra will be the new global chief financial and strategy officer at Cipla
Until recently Mr Umang was the head of the North America business for Dr Reddy's.
He was instrumental in growing this business by over 60% to cross a US $1 billion sales, almost half the revenues of Dr Reddy's, through several business development partnerships, acquisitions as well as growing the oncology health system business.
Prior to this, Mr Umang was the global CFO of Dr Reddy's for four years and was widely credited with the significant improvement in the company's ROCE (return on capital employed).
Prior to Dr Reddy's, he worked with PepsiCo and Eicher Motors.
In addition to the finance role, Mr Umang will be responsible for strategy, portfolio, business development, mergers and acquisitions and business technology.
