Gautam Sharma is the new MD for India
Nissin Foods, maker of Top Ramen Noodles, the Japanese foods firm has appointed Gautam Sharma as the Managing Director for Indo Nissin.
An alumnus of IIM-Ahmedabad, Sharma has worked with consumer goods firms such as GlaxoSmithKline, Perfetti van Melle, Gillette and Wrigley. He quit Wrigley, the second biggest confectionery firm in the country following Perfetti van Melle in 2012 after a four-year stint. He had been running a consultancy of his own for a year before joining Indo Nissin.
According to an official at Nissin Foods, "Nissin wants to accelerate its India presence, considering that its flagship brand is growing at a healthy pace. It may also look at extensions beyond its core category noodles, though it may not happen in the immediate future.”
