New corporate structure sees Akito Tachibana elevated to chairman.

The organisation will be restructured with the goal of strengthening its position in India. The Japanese carmaker has changed the roles of key personnel and has added a few new roles as well. Akito Tachibana, who was formerly the managing director, will now lead the brand in India as its chairman, while Akitoshi Takemura, the sr. vice president, is now the president. The company’s vice-president (operations) is currently Arun Nair.

“India is an extremely important market for Lexus. Today’s announcement of a new and independent organisational structure is a signal that we intend to build a business that continues to drive growth not only in India, but with India and for India,” said Akitoshi Takemura, president, Lexus India.

Lexus India is part of Toyota Kirloskar Motors and the company officially debuted in India in March 2017. It currently has four sales outlets (called guest experience centres) in Mumbai, Bengaluru, New Delhi and Gurgaon.
