The International Motorcycle Manufacturers Association, the governing body of the global motorcycle industry, has elected Mr Rakesh Sharma, the Executive Director at Bajaj Auto, from its member organization SIAM, the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers, for a 2-year mandate as its President.
Mr Sharma had been previously elected in May 2019 as the Vice-President for the (IMMA) International Motorcycle Manufacturers Association.
The IMMA Spring Congress, originally scheduled to be held between 20 and 24 April in New Delhi, was rescheduled into a series of meetings via conference calls and digital correspondence.
The election of the new President took place via a General Assembly by correspondence on 21st April 2020, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting lock down.
Mr Rakesh Sharma said, "Indeed these are very challenging times and I take up this prestigious appointment fully conscious of the role the motorcycle industry has to play both as a key industry and a responsible member of the society. Whilst we are facing numerous difficulties, we can also see that in due course new but different opportunities will emerge."
"The role of national, regional and global associations such as SIAM and IMMA is now more important than ever and we will work hard to ensure we play a strong and responsible role in the recovery,'' he added.
Mr Rakesh Sharma joined Bajaj Auto during the October of 2007 as President of International Business, and is currently the Executive Director. He is a member of the Board of Commissioners of PT Bajaj Auto Indonesia, a subsidiary of Bajaj Auto Ltd., and is the Chairman of the Exports Council of SIAM.
Mr Sharma succeeds Mr Johannes Loman, the Director of PT Astra International Tbk, and the Executive Vice President Director PT Astra Honda Motor Indonesia, and President of the Federation of Asian Motorcycle Industries and President of the Indonesian Motorcycle Industry Association.
Mr Loman stated, "IMMA aims to advance the sustainable growth of the two-wheeler industry in every region of the world. We are fortunate to have Mr Sharma with his wide international experience in the two and three- wheeler industry, to steer IMMA through the difficult time and be the trusted global voice of the motorcycle manufacturers. I look forward to work with Mr Sharma in my role as FAMI representative in IMMA's Steering Committee."
