Vidhi to head consumer healthcare biz at Sun Pharma
Three years after Aalok Shanghvi was inducted as emerging markets head of Sun Pharma, the company has now introduced Vidhi Salgaocar as head of the Consumer Healthcare business, a separate division.
A graduate in economics from the Wharton
School of the University of Pennsylvania, Salgaocar joined Sun Pharma in 2012. Before officially taking charge as head of the consumer division she led the marketing function of the India business.
Salgaocar played a major role in developing the nutrition business of Sun Pharma and spearheaded the company’s strategy to enter the nutrition space. India’s consumer healthcare business is estimated to expand to $280 billion from about $100 billion currently. In India, traditional drug makers appear to be entering the space after building their generic drugs business.
