Kevin Flynn, president and managing director, FCA India, said, “I am delighted to welcome Rahul Pansare and Sushant Balsekar to the FCA India team. They both are strong and dynamic leaders in their respective functions and will help strengthen FCA’s presence in India. They come in at a crucial time as we are steering the organisation into an all-new phase of development.”
