This is a result of our commitment to remain agile, stay relevant to the times, and adapt to constantly evolving customer and market needs,” said Renuka Jagtiani, Chairwoman, Landmark Group.

“As we look to embrace new possibilities, it is imperative that we appoint a proactive, future-focused leader who believes in our vision and can forge an exciting new era for our retail business. Having been a part of Landmark Group for 18 years, Kabir has a great understanding of the Group and business and displays remarkable leadership and people skills. I am proud today to transition the responsibility of the CEO, Landmark Retail to Kabir, who embodies the Group’s values.”

“The business will continue to be an intrinsic part of my life. In my role as Chair, I will be able to devote more effort to furthering the Group’s vision and strategy, spending more time on the Group’s other business verticals and exploring new business opportunities,” she added.

“I am grateful for the trust and confidence the Landmark Group’s Board of Directors have placed in me for this key role, and I am excited to unlock the next phase of growth for the division, both across brands and geographies. I am committed to driving value creation by building on our Group’s established legacy in the region and strengthening the bonds between our brands and millions of customers, through innovation across business. I am very fortunate to work with a strong senior leadership team and am confident that collectively we will continue our journey of growth under the able guidance and direction of our dedicated management,” said Kabir Lumba, CEO, Landmark Retail
