OVL looks for director commercial

Vol 12, PW 10 (02 Oct 08) News in Brief

Moves are afoot to select a replacement for Anupam Mathur, director commercial at ONGC Videsh (OVL), who retires on September 1 next year.

The director commercial advises the ONGC chairman on operations and new projects across OVL’s growing portfolio of assets from Latin America and Africa to Sakhalin in Russia. An eligibility criterion for both public and private candidates is that their (present) employer should have registered annual revenue of more than Rs50cr ($12m).

Mathur’s retirement is still a year away but that has not stopped the rumour mill guessing his replacement. One clear favourite is S.

Roychaudhury, an executive director at OVL. “Roychaudhury is already heavily involved in day-to-day operations at OVL,â€‌ confirms a source.

Mathur assumed his current post in February last year and the PESB advertised for his replacement on September 24. Anyone interested should submit their CV next month by November 17 at the very latest.
