Marco Paracciani has been appointed as the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) at Apollo Tyres Ltd. Mr Paracciani will spearhead the global marketing efforts of Apollo’s key product brands, in terms of product strategy, marketing communication and product mix management. He will be assisted by a team of product managers responsible for individual brands across all geographies.


Neeraj Kanwar, Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Apollo Tyres Ltd, said, “In a rapidly growing organization like ours, Marco will bring in the much-needed synergy across locations, and at the same time, add enormous value by building each of our product brands with their distinctive value proposition. Given his strong track record in new product development and market share growth across geographies, Marco would be a key asset for us going forward.”


Mr Paracciani’s last assignment was with Electrolux, where he served as the Senior Vice President, Product and Brand Marketing, Asia Pacific, and Senior Vice President, Global Product Line. Prior to this, he had spent a significant part of his career with Colgate-Palmolive in Europe, US, Latin America and Thailand.

Mr Paracciani will be based out of London and report to Mr Kanwar. Mr Paracciani said, “I have seen Apollo Tyres taking giant strides in the past few years. With two overseas acquisitions in the past, the company now has a bouquet of product brands. We will look at creating a synergy between our different product brands where they need to co-exist, and at the same time, continue to be a market- and customer-driven company.”
