Future Generali India Insurance Company (FGII), announced the appointment of Akshaya Kashyap as the chief people officer, effective October 1. He has joined the organisation with a rich and diverse experience in the human resources (HR) domain, spanning over 18 years, with almost a decade of that being with Future Generali.
Akshaya has succeeded Sunil Wariar who superannuated from service in September this year and played a stellar role over the last 14 years and has been instrumental in shaping the company’s HR policies and employee first approach.
Earlier, Akshaya served as a DGM HR in India Life (FGIL) before moving to FGII in February 2016. He also had an overseas stint with Generali Vietnam. Before joining Future Generali, he worked in varied sectors including auto-ancillary, manufacturing, and retail.
“In alignment with our employee-centric philosophy, our primary focus is on promoting our dedicated current team members who have invested their time and energy in our organisation when it comes to filling critical positions, rather than seeking external candidates. I am confident that Akshaya will build on the platform established by Sunil and further extend the company’s culture where employees from diverse backgrounds work collaboratively and in a cohesive manner,” said Anup Rau, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Future Generali India Insurance Company. He also thanked Sunil for his services and wished him the very best for the next phase of his life.
