Her last day at Mahindra was yesterday (March 31) and she was scheduled to join Vedanta today. Ms Balwani has been Senior Vice President, Group Communications (and Chief Group Communications Officer) since 2005. She has worked with Aptech as VP and Head of Communications from 1997 to 2005 in India and Norway with a stint in between at eBookers, in Oslo, Norway.
Confirming the news, Ms Balwani told MxMIndia that she was looking forward to Vedanta and working with Tom Albanese who coincidentally also takes official charge as CEO from today (April 1)


Ms Balwani’s position is meanwhile going to be filled in by Ruzbeh Irani who has been Chief Executive – International Operations, Automotive & Farm Equipment Divisions in the group. In addition, Mr Irani has been Chief Brand Officer at M&M and has been spearheading the Mahindra Rise positioning.
