Naveen Tahilyani has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Managing Director (MD) of Tata Digital, a subsidiary of Tata Sons. He is set to assume his new responsibilities on February 19th.
Tahilyani is currently the CEO and MD of Tata AIA Life Insurance. He will succeed Pratik Pal, who was instrumental in the launch of the company’s super app, Tata Neu.
On Tahilyani’s appointment, Tata Sons Chairman N Chandrasekaran said, “I am delighted to welcome Naveen to Tata Digital. Naveen brings in strong understanding of the consumer domain and a very successful track record of leadership. I wish Naveen success in his new role.”
Chandrasekaran also thanked Pal for his contribution.
“Pratik has been successfully leading the company since its inception and led Tata Group’s foray into digital commerce. I would like to thank Pratik for his significant contribution to Tata Digital,” the company said in a release.
Earlier in the day, the salt-to-software conglomerate had announced that Tata AIA’s Venkatachalam H was promoted internally and made the CEO of the insurance company, after Tahilyani’s move to Tata Digital.
Tata Digital Pvt. Ltd was founded in March 2019. The development also comes amid reports that Tata Digital may enter into the food ordering business.
