Pa­van Shetty

Di­rec­tor, Porsche In­dia

Car India - - FEATURE -

Porsche In­dia’s jour­ney of­fi­cially be­gan in April 2012 and Pa­van Shetty took charge as the com­pany’s di­rec­tor from 2016 on­wards. Dur­ing this time the sports car mak­ers from Stuttgart have in­tro­duced a bevy of their most pop­u­lar global modes in In­dia. In the re­cent past, th­ese in­clude the likes of the Panam­era and Panam­era Sport Tur­ismo, Ma­can ‘R4’, and the ex­cit­ing 911 GT3 and GT3 RS.

Shetty’s jour­ney to the top rung of Porsche dates back over 15 years in the auto in­dus­try, span­ning var­i­ous ver­ti­cals such as op­er­a­tions, sales, mar­ket­ing and pub­lic re­la­tions, busi­ness devel­op­ment, chan­nel devel­op­ment, and man­age­ment. Th­ese po­si­tions were held at some of the top au­to­mo­tive brands in In­dia, in­clud­ing Cas­trol, Tata Mo­tors, Ford In­dia, and, more re­cently, a stint as Head of Op­er­a­tions at Lam­borgh­ini In­dia.

Shetty will be quite busy in the near fu­ture, too, for Porsche have just launched the 911 GT2 RS and a few more launches are in the pipe­line such as the Cayenne, Cayenne Turbo and Cayenne S Hy­brid, new Ma­can, and the 718 GTS twins.
