The Board of Directors of Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has appointed S N Subrahmanyan as Chairman and Managing Director with effect from October 1. He is currently the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of the Company.
Also, the Board of Directors decided to confer the status of Chairman Emeritus on A M Naik after he decided to step down as Non-Executive Chairman of the L&T Group at the end of his tenure on September 30.
Naik has been with L&T for more than 58 years. He has been the architect of the transformation of L&T into a sharply focused global conglomerate with dominance in the sectors in which it operates.
“L&T has been my life. I am immensely proud that I could play a significant part in its growth. The growth trajectory that the company has charted in the last two to three decades is exemplary. The emphasis we laid on IT and Technology Services has had a significant positive impact on the profitability of the organisation. Going forward also, I am sure that Mr. Subrahmanyan will continue to foster the high growth and entrepreneurial culture at L&T. In him, L&T has a highly capable, passionate and empathetic leader,” said Naik.
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to our Group Chairman Mr. Naik and the Board for reposing trust in me and appointing me as the Chairman and Managing Director. I must humbly submit that all that we have been able to achieve has been with the utmost support of all L&Tites, and of course with the firm backing of Mr. Naik. Mr. Naik contributed significantly to building what we know today as L&T. I would humbly like to take up this responsibility and take the legacy of trust, customer focus, timely delivery, quality, people centricity, and professionalism forward,” said Subrahmanyan.
