New Delhi: Volvo Auto India has announced the appointment of Mr. Tomas Ernberg as the Managing Director of the company. He will be responsible for the overall planning and operations in India. Mr. Ernberg has taken over from Mr. Paul de Voijs who completed a successful stint in India.

I am confident that Volvo will continue its trajectory of growth under the leadership of Tomas.”

With a corporate office in Gurgaon, Volvo Auto opened its first dealership in March 2008 and currently markets its products through its dealerships in New Delhi, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Kochi and Pune with more cities in the pipeline.  Volvo currently sells its four premium models in India – luxury SUVs Volvo XC90 & XC60 and luxury sedan Volvo S80 & Volvo S60.

Mr. Tomas Ernberg, Managing Director, Volvo Auto India said, “India is one of the fastest growing markets for Volvo and holds great promise. I am extremely excited about my new role and I look forward to further strengthen Volvo’s presence here. We have invested considerable time and effort in understanding Indian customers and offering them world-class products. I personally hope to learn from every challenge that unfolds.
