Heidrick to find new chief for Dabur
EPP News Bureau – New Delhi
Dabur India Ltd has hired consultancy firm Heidrick and Struggles to locate a new chief executive. The post is presently lying vacant following the expiry of a three-year contract between the former CEO Ninu Khanna and Dabur.
The decision to appoint a new CEO is part of Burman family’s gameplan to professonalise the top management of Dabur.
Khanna played a key role in transforming Dabur from a purely ayurvedic company to a producer and marketer of natural and herbal products for personal care.
He also credited in giving the Dabur brand a more youthful image.
It was during Khanna’s tenure that Dabur took a global exposure in oncology. Dabur Oncology Plc, a fully-owned subsidiary of Dabur India in the United Kingdom, is being looked after by Dabur India vice-chairman Anand Burman.
