Giti Tire’s European growth strategy has been further augmented with the appointment of Sujata Achuthan to the newly created role of Business System Manager.
Sujata, who possesses over 15 years global IT experience, is tasked with the introduction of the Oracle Enterprise Business Suite (EBS) to provide the platform for increased finance and distribution requirements, as well as further improve the company’s hardware and software.
Located in Manchester and reporting directly to Gillian MacRae, Finance Director – Europe, she will also be functionally aligned to the Chief Information Officer (CIO) in Asia on a joint project to implement standard reporting processes.
Sujata will work across all Giti Tire’s European brands – GT Radial, Primewell, Runway and Dextero – across passenger car, SUV, light truck and truck and bus programmes.
Gillian said: "Sujata’s big company experience is second-to-none, she can clearly demonstrate a complex Oracle implementation at PricewaterhouseCoopers plus project management for the likes of Hitachi, Panasonic and Standard Chartered Bank, to name but a few.
"As the requirements for our European expansion increase so does the complexity of the financial, warehousing and distribution operations. To deliver this we need a cohesive team that is exceptional in every way, and Sujata will fit the bill perfectly."
