Philips appoints Sameer Garde as president of healthcare unit in India

22 July, 2014

Philips India has appointed Sameer Garde as president, Philips Healthcare, South Asia, effective from July 22, 2014.

He replaces the role vacated by Krishna Kumar who continued to lead the Philips Healthcare business following his appointment as vice chairman and managing director, Philips India in December 2013.

Garde comes with over 24 years of experience. He started his career in the consumer industry with Nestle and Pepsi before transitioning to the B2B segment with positions in Whirlpool and Dell International. Prior to joining Philips, he headed enterprise business at Samsung.

An alumnus of IIM Kolkata and IIT Delhi, he brings in experience in driving sales and defining marketing growth opportunities for both B2C and B2B companies.

Currently, healthcare is one of the fastest growing businesses for Philips in India and leads in four out of the five categories it operates in. The Dutch firm is also a key player in lighting and small appliances after having sold the Indian consumer appliances business to Videocon, which now manufactures and sell Philips branded products such as televisions and audio systems in India.
