Bharat SALHOTRA, Managing Director
Mr. Bharat Salhotra is currently working as Managing Director for the Transport Operations of ALSTOM in India and South Asia. As the head of Alstom Transport, he is responsible for expanding the Alstom Transport footprint in India and for ensuring that projects get delivered in time and within budget. During the last two years, since he joined, Alstom Transport has substantially expanded its footprint in India and today has several projects under execution. Since his taking over, Alstom has augmented its footprint in India by adding over 1200 engineers to its twin innovation hubs at Bangalore. Today, Alstom Transport India is well positioned for serving not only the Indian market but also the rapidly expanding markets in South Asia Pacific region and beyond!
Mr. Salhotra has been pushing for promoting Alstom light rail turnkey solution for Tier II cities in India and sensitizing the Indian customers on the need to adopt solution based on life cycle costs rather than on capital costs only. As a result, a number of cities such as Trivandrum, Kozhikode, Nagpur and Delhi suburbia are actively looking at inducting the Alstom’s Axonis Light Rail Transport solution.
Mr. Salhotra is a Sloan Fellow with an MBA from MIT's Sloan School of Management. While at MIT, he led a team of Sloan Fellows for re-strategizing United Parcel Service's business. He has a number of publications to his credit, including one co-authored with Deputy Dean of MIT Sloan School. He has also authored a land mark Case Study on India’s first PPP initiative in the Port Sector which resulted in major policy changes at national level. Mr. Salhotra has been appointed Chevalier de lÓrdre national du Merite (Knight in the National Order of Merit) by the President of the French Republic during May 2015.
