Neeraj Chandra, then chief operating officer and vice-president of marketing, sales and innovation, has taken over Menon's previous role of vice-president and head of strategy and new business development at the company.

Chandra has been replaced by Varun Berry as the new chief operating officer and vice-president of marketing, sales and innovation.
