Bharti Retail ropes in Raj Jain as CEO

New Delhi : Bharti Retail announced the appointments of former head of Walmart India Raj Jain as its CEO and Pankaj Madan, another senior executive of erstwhile joint venture Bharti Walmart, as Chief Financial Officer. 

Jain, who left Walmart India in June last year, will report to Bharti Enterprises Vice Chairman and Managing Director Rajan Bharti Mittal, the company said in a statement.
Madan, who was CFO at Bharti Walmart, had left the cash and carry firm in the wake of investigations of corruption allegations by Walmart in 2012.
Commenting on the appointments, Mittal said: “Bharti is committed to building a world-class retail venture and we are delighted to have Raj and Pankaj on board. I am confident that their rich experience and insights into the retail business will add immense value to company’s growth plans.”
Jain was also the Asia Pacific Region Head, Marketing and Supply Chain at Whirlpool Corporation in Shanghai and had also served as Managing Director & CEO of Whirlpool of India Ltd.
In October last year, Bharti Enterprises and Walmart had announced they were parting ways to operate retail stores independently in India, ending speculation over the future of their six-year-old partnership.
