British based consumer based multinational corporation, Reckitt Benckiser has selected Gurveen Singh as Global Head of Human Resources. The selection came amid exit of four top company executives.

According to a media report, the four executives include Darrell Steins, Heads of Information Technology, Frederic Larmuseau, Developing Markets Head, Roberto Funari, Category Development Head and Deborah Yates, Head of Human Resources. Gurveen Singh will succeed Deborah Yates.

Singh who is currently leading HR for developing markets based in Dubai has been in her current role for close to three years, before which she was regional human resources head for South Asia. She is an alumna of Lady Sriram College, Delhi University and completed her post-graduation from XLRI.
