Oliver Willmes, Chief Operating Officer and Chairman of the Board of Management of ERGO International said, "I am confident that Mr. Anuj Tyagi will take HDFC ERGO to greater success with his dynamism and keen interest in customer-centricity and digital innovation.”

"As we embrace a future-ready, tech-first approach, I look forward to harnessing innovation to deliver unparalleled value to our customers and channel partners.
