The Bata Shoe, manufacturers and retailers of quality footwear, has appointed Sandeep Kataria as CEO of the company.
He has served as the CEO of Bata India since 2017, and takes over the global CEO role from Alexis Nasard, who has stepped down to assume a professional opportunity outside the organisation.
Kataria brings deep experience with global, consumer facing businesses and leading international brands, having joined Bata India after successful stints at Unilever, YUM Brands and Vodafone. He will take on the management of Bata at a pivotal moment, with the company keen to rebuild momentum following the Covid crisis and to deliver on its ambitious growth agenda.
Kataria will lead efforts to strengthen Bata’s digital presence, to reinforce its reputation for innovation and market leadership in high quality, affordable footwear, and to drive sustained growth across the company’s global footprint.
Graham Allan, Chairman of the Board, said: “On behalf of the Board, we are thrilled to appoint an internal leader with such deep experience to the role of CEO at such a critical time. With Sandeep’s proven track record as CEO of Bata India, we are confident in his ability to lead Bata and advance our strategic agenda.”
