The slew of Board level appointments reflects L&T's resolve to chart an aggressive future in its businesses.

Mr. Sarma is at present CEO and MD of L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering, a wholly-owned subsidiary of L&T. In his new role, Mr. Sarma will be designated Whole-Time Director & Sr. Executive Vice President (Energy). Effective August 19, 2020, he will hold Board level responsibility for L&T's Power business, in addition to his current responsibility in the Hydrocarbon business.

Mr. Desai and Mr. Madhava Das are both members of the Company's apex-level Executive Management Committee and have been elevated to the Board with immediate effect. Mr. Desai has been designated Whole-Time Director & Sr. Executive Vice President (Civil Infrastructure) and will be responsible for the Heavy Civil Infrastructure and Transportation Infrastructure businesses. Mr. Madhava Das will be designated Whole-Time Director & Sr. Executive Vice President (Utilities) and will be responsible for the Power Transmission & Distribution and Water & Effluent Treatment (WET) businesses.

Commenting on the board appointments, Mr. S N Subrahmanyan, CEO & Managing Director, L&T said: "Internationally, the hydrocarbon and power businesses are generally viewed as a cluster, and L&T will now adopt the same integrated strategy. Mr. Sarma's experience and business insights especially in the intensively competitive Gulf markets are going to add great value to our Energy thrust. Both Mr. Desai and Mr. Madhava Das bring to the Board their expertise and competence across diverse fields both in the domestic and overseas markets, that will add a cutting edge as we look to take our Company's business to the next level. We require a global vision with a strong local orientation. All these colleagues have proven their worth in extremely testing circumstances and are well-equipped to take on the added responsibility of steering the future course of their respective businesses."

Mr. Subramanian Sarma, designate Whole-Time Director & Sr. Executive Vice President (Energy) said: "L&T's power business has carved a niche for itself as an EPC player backed by strong, indigenous manufacturing capability that covers the full spectrum - boilers, turbine generators and balance of plant. The team has done well, given the circumstances. I am looking forward to the challenge of handling an integrated 'Energy' portfolio encompassing both hydrocarbon and power. Given the excellent track record of L&T and its subsidiary L&T Hydrocarbon, I am sure that we will be able to make a positive impact on the industry while ensuring that the company meets its growth objectives."

Mr. S V Desai, Whole-Time Director & Sr. Executive Vice President (Civil Infrastructure) said: "It is a great honour and I am conscious of the enormous responsibility of leading these businesses at a challenging time in the Company's history.

Given the institution's capabilities and inherent strengths, I am confident that we will do well, and ensure that we realize our true potential."

Mr. T Madhava Das, Whole-Time Director & Sr. Executive Vice President (Utilities) said: I have always believed that one of the pillars that L&T is founded on is meritocracy and this honour of being inducted on to the Board is a reflection of that value. L&T has done unique work both in power transmission distribution and in urban rural electrification works. We have taken Power & Water Infrastructure to the hinterland of the country and have brought the essentials of water and light to many citizens of the country. These two businesses have developed a significant footprint in the GCC, ASEAN and Africa. I look forward to the challenge ahead. I am fortunate to have a fine team, and all of us re-dedicate ourselves to take the Company's interests forward."
