Director, Porsche India
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.
