Dr. Lakshmi Venu appointed as Managing Director of Sundaram-Clayton Limited
Dr. Lakshmi Venu has recently been given the post of Managing Director of Sundaram-Clayton Limited (SCL). Thanks to the efforts of Dr. Venu, the company has been competitive in the work of auto component makers.
She has been with the company for over a decade and was the Joint Managing Director of Sundaram Clayton before being given her new role. Dr. Venu made the call to set up a foundry in the US in 2019. Located in Dorchester, South Carolina, this facility was exactly what many US-based customers were looking for. The on-shore foundry units reduced supply chain risks and curtailed carbon footprint.
Accepting the post of MD, Dr Lakshmi Venu, Managing Director, Sundaram-Clayton said, “The world is changing very rapidly and disruptions in the automotive industry are becoming de rigueur. The future promises to be exciting, challenging and presents new opportunities. We have an excellent team and together we look forward to strengthening Sundaram Clayton both in India and globally.”
Venu Srinivasan, Chairman Emeritus, Sundaram-Clayton said, “Lakshmi’s focus and dedicated efforts over the last ten years have seen the Company do a turnaround in quality, profitability, and building relationship with OEMs. ”
