President of India Operations, Nissan India and Datsun India
Thomas Kuehl took over as President of India Operations at Nissan India and Datsun India following Guillaume Sicard’s departure last year. Kuehl heads all the Japanese company’s operations in India, including marketing, sales, manufacturing and R&D, and brings to the table his 22 years of experience in the global automotive industry.
The company celebrated its fifth anniversary since Datsun was first revealed in India by offering a five-year extended warranty package for its customers. Showing commitment to the country, Nissan also launched their first global Digital Hub in Kerala which will serve as an important engine to drive Nissan’s global digital transformation.
With past experience at Škoda Auto India and the Volkswagen Group, India, Kuehl is well aware of the demands of the Indian market and was behind the recent launch of an AMT variant of Datsun’s city car, the redi-GO 1.0-litre. With Kuehl at the helm, one can expect many more exciting launched in the future.
