"I am humbled and honoured to be chosen to lead a truly great institution that occupies a unique position in the hearts of people in India and the world. I am proud to have been part of the Tata family for over 30 years and assuming this position is a great privilege," said Chandrasekaran.
Chandrasekaran further asserted he is aware that the new role comes with huge responsibilities and added that it would be his endeavour to help progress the group with the values that the Tata group has been built on.
