R. MADHAVAN TAKES OVER AS CMD OF HAL

SP's Aviation - - NEWS | DIGEST -

R. Madhavan has taken over as Chair­man and Manag­ing Di­rec­tor of HAL from T. Su­varna Raju, to­day. Prior to this, he was head­ing the Ac­ces­sories Di­vi­sion of HAL at Lucknow as an Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor.

“Main­tain­ing the nu­mero uno po­si­tion of HAL in aero­space in­dus­try while de­liv­er­ing world class prod­ucts and ser­vices through in­creased in­di­geni­sa­tion would be my key fo­cus ar­eas”, says Madhavan. The em­pha­sis would be to build on the core com­pe­tence of the Com­pany and emerge as the pre­ferred sup­plier in the aero­space in­dus­try, he adds.

Born in 1962, Madhavan is a Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neer from NIT, Raipur and a post grad­u­ate in M. Tech. from IIT Madras. He joined HAL as a man­age­ment trainee in July 1982 and has com­pre­hen­sive man­age­ment and en­gi­neer­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. His di­verse skill sets in var­ied fields like pro­duc­tion, qual­ity, cus­tomer ser­vices and man­age­ment fetched him key po­si­tions within the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Madhavan is a firm believer that tech­nol­ogy is one of the key de­ter­mi­nants for the fu­ture suc­cess of any or­gan­i­sa­tion in to­day’s cut­ting edge tech-world. He spear­headed suc­cess­ful ab­sorp­tion of tech­nol­ogy for pro­duc­tion of Su-30 air­frame and en­gine ac­ces­sories from raw ma­te­rial phase at HAL’s Ac­ces­sories Di­vi­sion, Lucknow. He has con­trib­uted to ‘ Make in In­dia’ drive by de­vel­op­ing MSME ven­dors for aero­space man­u­fac­tur­ing.

The new CMD’s fo­cus ar­eas would also in­clude De­sign & De­vel­op­ment, order book po­si­tion and prod­uct mix which meets the cus­tomer re­quire­ments. Part­ner­ship, col­lab­o­ra­tion and sup­port of all the stake hold­ers is the key for HAL’s suc­cess in fu­ture, he says.
