I look forward to supporting the Group fulfil its ambition while helping my country meet its indigenization goals. I feel privileged to be in this role at a company which has put ‘Make in India’ front and centre of its India strategy,” said Saraf.

 

Prior to joining Airbus Group, Saraf was the India head of the Tata Sikorsky joint venture since 2010 and led Sikorsky’s industrialisation and strategic partnerships in India.

He is an alumnus of the Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), Pune and the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Nagpur.

 

Airbus Group has been actively collaborating with India, including embedding local players in its global value chain and tying up with Indian partners to target several ongoing defence acquisition programmes. The Group has submitted a bid with Tata to jointly manufacture the C295 aircraft in India as a replacement for the Indian Air Force’s ageing Avro aircraft and has tied-up with Mahindra Defence to jointly produce helicopters in India.
