New global head of HR for Dr Reddy’s

Sripada Chandrasekhar joins from IBM

Dr Reddy's Sripada Chandrasekhar Hyderabad, India-headquartered Dr Reddy's Laboratories has appointed a former IBM executive president and global head of human resources.

In addition to heading the generics company's HR function, Dr Sripada Chandrasekhar will sit on the management council.

He brings with him more than 30 years' experience across India's public, private and multi-national sectors, most recently at IBM, where he was vice president and head of HR for the India/ South Asia region.

Chandrasekhar was also on the board of IBM India, and has worked in a range of sectors, from steel to IT services and consulting.

As global head of human resources, Chandrasekhar will be responsible for all 16,500 staff, covering Dr Reddy's three businesses: pharmaceutical services and active ingredients, global generics and proprietary products.

Chandrasekhar replaces Saumen Chakraborty, who was president, chief financial officer and global head of HR and IT&BPE. Chakraborty remains with Dr Reddy's, and has retained all but the HR element of his role.
