Ashok Leyland Ltd, the second-largest commercial vehicle maker in India, has appointed Manisha Girotra as its independent director on the board, as per a stock market disclosure.

Manisha, who is currently CEO of the Indian arm of global mid-market investment bank Moelis and Co, is also on the board of Paris-based construction and engineering company, Technip and IT consultancy services firm Mindtree Ltd.

Prior to joining Moelis & Co, Manisha oversaw the India operations for UBS and Barclays de Zoete Wedd’s investment bank.

She has been one of the most prominent women dealmakers in the country and a specialist in investment banking, mergers & acquisitions and wealth management.

In another board level movement, YM Kale has resigned as an alternate director, the company announced in the same filing.
