Andy DeLeone, president of the Europe, Middle East, Africa and India region at Bombardier Transportation, said: “For almost two decades, Rajeev Joisar has been a trusted leader and proven business partner for Bombardier and our customers in India, and he is a great addition to our senior team.

“As the managing director for India, Rajeev will nurture and further develop our valuable customer relationships, while growing a sustainable business in India.”
